Are you fascinated by human behaviour and thought? Do you want to know more about how and why people think the way they do? Then study psychology with ACAP and find out.

Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and behaviour. The knowledge base of psychology is developed through creating and testing theories about what determines how people think, feel and behave at an individual, group, organisational and community level.

ACAP provides the full six year sequence of courses to become a qualified psychologist, from Bachelor through to Master level. Our teaching staff has extensive teaching experience in psychology and their research interests span the specialities of psychology. ACAP was the first non-university higher education provider to have its curriculum, staff, and resources recognised by the Australian Psychological Accreditation Council (APAC). This provides graduates of these courses with certainty that these course qualifications meet the training standards of APAC.
