Enrolment Guide

Sequence of Study for Bachelor of Psychological Science and Counselling (BPsycSciCoun)

** These units are APAC approved core psychology units that also meet requirements for PACFA.

Important information about planning your enrolment

  • It is strongly recommended that students complete COUN1101 Counselling Skills and Practice 1 in their first trimester of study.
  • Units generally do not have to be completed in a set order within each year (except for the foundational first year units and/or where prerequisites are set, as indicated) although we recommend students follow the recommended enrolment sequence wherever possible. 
  • A pre-requisite unit is a unit that lays the foundation for another, and must therefore be completed prior. 
  • Not all units are offered every trimester. Please refer to the Yearly Planner and the current timetable page when planning your enrolment for the academic year. 
  • Students are strongly encouraged to plan their enrolment for the year ahead of time, including enrolment in electives during the academic year. 
  • Unit availability is subject to demand.
