You'll thrive at ACAP

Understanding people isn’t just for psychology. It’s for anyone who knows why the world needs to change – and wants to know how.

Our understanding of human behaviour is reflected in the way you study with us. Smaller, interactive classes to help you excel. Where we know you by name and you’re not shy to speak up and discuss your ideas, role-play and support each other. Where your passion for learning is mirrored equally by our passion for experiential teaching. We give you the encouragement and one-on-one support to help you learn and grow.

We’re outcomes focused, meaning it’s not just about what you learn when you’re with us, but what you’re capable of when you graduate. Our practical approach arms you with hours of real world interaction and insight, and professional connections. You'll graduate with applied skills, hands-on confidence, and contemporary expertise that is industry recognised and highly-sought after.

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

We are committed to creating a people centred college that supports and promotes Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for all.

This philosophy and policy is a work in progress and is brought to you by ACAP’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group (a mix of ACAP students and staff).

We are working towards a college culture where every voice is heard and respected. Where you have freedom from discrimination and harassment, and feel supported, valued and included.
If you have questions or any ideas and suggestions on how we can improve, we would love to hear from you and always value feedback.
