School of Psychology Online Application Form by 30 November, 2014.

PLEASE NOTE: READ THIS BEFORE COMPLETING STEP 2
Applicants for our Honours programme do not need to contact potential supervisors in our School before lodging applications with the School or the relevant Faculty. After completing the School application, applicants will be emailed a receipt. This receipt is called THE RECEIPT OF SCHOOL OF PSYCHOLOGY ONLINE APPLICATION, and is "Proof of Contact with an Academic Coordinator". You will need to upload a PDF of the receipt to the Faculty application form as evidence of contact with an academic coordinator. You do NOT need to contact any academic staff at this stage.

Step 2 – Faculty Applications

All applicants (except BPsych students) must apply through Sydney Courses (Details of the exact links and other information are available in the Honours Information Booklet for 2015)

Please note: The honours degree students apply for depends on their undergraduate degree, i.e. a student who completed a Bachelor of Arts will need to apply for Bachelor of Arts (Honours) while a student who completed a Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Science should apply for Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Science (Honours).

(Details of the exact links and other information are available in the Honours Information Booklet for 2015)

Special information for University of Sydney BPsych Students: You do not need to submit a Faculty application.

Special information for Bachelor of Health Sciences Students: Students who have completed an accredited Psychology major in the Bachelor of Health Sciences should apply for Honours in the Bachelor of Science (Honours) as the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) is no longer accredited.

External students who completed their bachelor’s degrees at other Australian universities should enroll in Bachelor of Science (Honours) or Bachelor of Arts (Honours) depending on their previous degree. Note that the Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) is NOT available for external applicants.
