Professional recognition of degrees in Psychology from the University of Sydney
There are two forms of professional recognition of a Psychology graduate's training that are of concern to most Sydney graduates. The first is recognition by the Psychology Board of Australia, the Board which determines who may practise Psychology in Australia.
The second is recognition by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) which is the professional body representing Psychologists in Australia. While full membership of the society requires a fifth and sixth year of graduate study, it is not required to practise as a psychologist in Australia.
Both forms of recognition require the successful completion of a sequence of study in psychology that has been accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).
