Degree Courses

ISN Offers the following courses:

Students who have successfully completed 4 years of an APAC accredited undergraduate sequence in psychology will be eligible to apply for our 2-year Master of Psychology (Clinical) Degree

Mode of Delivery

ISN Psychology provides face to face teaching as its preferred format for course delivery in the form of lectures and tutorials. In some instances units may have online components to create a blended learning environment. This will be used to enhance the delivery of course content and learning objectives to students for selected units. This is achievable because of the small class sizes for each unit of study. E-learning will be used where appropriate to provide adjunct and external learning spaces to allow the learning outcomes to be assessed and effectively implemented.

In particular skill based learning outcomes can be assessed through e-learning in addition to the more traditional forms of learning.

Information presented on this website is a guide only and students should refer to ISN’s Policies and Procedures Handbook for more detailed information.

At ISN Psychology students can apply for entry into one of two degree sequences as distinguished above. This allows for greater flexibility and an opportunity for eligible students, who continue to achieve at a high standard, to complete a full sequence of study towards registration outcomes.

Special entry requirements apply for entry into these degree sequences and to maintain enrolment. In general students need to meet the relevant entry requirements  in addition to a high level of academic achievement and highly rated experience. Vocational and related psychological assessment will also form part of the evaluation process for entry into these sequence degrees.
