Resources for Applicants

References Required

Applicants must provide references using the online HODSPA reference system. A guide on how to use the system is available here. All references must be completed and received through the HODSPA system no later than two weeks after the applications close date listed above.

  • The Master of Psychology (Clinical Psychology) and Doctor of Psychology (Clinical Psychology) requires two academic references and one professional reference.
  • Master of Professional Psychology (MPP) requires two academic references and one professional reference.
  • Master of Professional Psychology Practice (MPPP Internship – Advanced entry) requires two academic references and one professional reference.
  • The Counselling and Psychotherapy programs (e.g. Graduate Certificate of Counselling and Psychotherapy, the Graduate Diploma of Counselling and Psychotherapy, or Master of Counselling and Psychotherapy) all require two references; we prefer at least one academic reference. However, if you have been out of higher education for more than ten years then two professional references or voluntary references will be sufficient.

Note: The Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) does not require references.
