Since its establishment in 1983 as the Australian College of Applied Psychology, ACAP has been committed to experiential learning, community focus, and study flexibility, setting itself apart from traditional institutions. ACAP’s vision has always revolved around graduating students who positively contribute to society.
Throughout a four-decade journey, ACAP has recently ventured into management and law, recognising the criticality of human skills across all industries. The college has witnessed remarkable growth, with the recent opening of a state-of-the-art campus in Adelaide and the upcoming launch of a collaborative-spaces campus in Melbourne CBD.
ACAP’s utilisation of psychology and people skills as management tools has led to the introduction of courses beyond human services.
