Personalisation makes the course and enhances learning. As a result I’ve done so much better at ACAP – both personally and academically. The lecturers are relatable, honest and supportive of leading you in the right direction. Michelle, Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science

Previously I had studied Economics and Law, then I was drawn to studying at ACAP because of my interest in helping and understanding people. The best things about ACAP is that it is flexible, inclusive and supportive. George, Graduate Diploma of Psychological Science
