Study Psychology

Psychology is a rapidly growing and rewarding career path, with strong job growth predicted over the coming years.

With some of the world’s top academics at the University of Newcastle, our staff are guiding the next generation of psychology graduates through their studies.

Students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in our psychology labs and take part in problem-based workshops and attend guest lectures from psychology professionals. We also have on-campus psychology clinics where students can strengthen their learning with real patients and cases.

Note: The Master of Clinical Psychology and Master of Professional Psychology accept applications through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC). You will need an admission portfolio and referee reports to accompany your application. There is a strict application deadline of 4 October 2021 to begin study in Semester 1 2022.
