Postgraduate papers for Psychology - 2014


The information contained in this publication is indicative of offerings available for 2013 and subsequent years.  This information is correct at the time of going to press, but may be subject to change.  Whilst all reasonable efforts will be made to ensure listed papers and programmes are offered and regulations are up to date, the University reserves the right to change the content or method of presentation, or to withdraw any course of study, or impose limitations on enrolments should circumstances require this.

Honours and Masters Level Taught Papers

Please remember that acceptance into Postgraduate Diploma, Honours or Masters Programmes does not guarantee your acceptance into specific papers.  Several 700-level papers in the School of Psychology have enrolment limits of twenty-five students per offering.  It is advisable to enrol for your papers as early as possible in order to maximise your chances of being accepted into a specific paper on your preferred campus.

Block Mode

Most taught papers are offered in block mode, however a few are taught in Extramural mode.  In both instances, this means that the course materials are posted to the student who is expected to work consistently across the whole semester of enrolment.  In addition to written materials and assignments, there is an on campus course of four or five days for each paper.

Attendance at on-campus courses is COMPULSORY
