An undergraduate Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) - accredited psychology major is a prerequisite for any student wishing to undertake further study to become a practicing psychologist. A three-year accredited psychology major requires the completion of a minimum of 125 credit points worth of undergraduate psychology subjects. This requires the completion of nine compulsory subjects and at least one elective subject. All subjects are worth 12.5 points.

Further information on the structure of the accredited psychology major is available on the School of Behavioural Science website.

Although the major study in psychology only requires 37.5 points at third year level, all undergraduate science students must complete a minimum of 50 points of third year level science subjects to satisfy their degree requirements.
