4 About Psychological Sciences Psychology has been a part of a tradition of academic excellence and research achievement at the University of Melbourne since the late 1800 s. The Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences is the newest of the five schools of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. It is one of the largest departments of psychology in Australia, with over 1700 undergraduate students (including 60 students at the fourth year level) and around 300 postgraduate students. The Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences has more than 60 academic staff members and over 100 associates, with many of the latter being involved in the teaching of professional training programs. We have outstanding strengths across the field of psychology, and we are one of a small number of major research schools in Australia, commanding a staff profile of international significance. We offer wide ranging research interests with emphasis on several major areas: Cognitive and behavioural neuroscience Perception, development of speech, psychology of language, decision making, laterality, attention, motor control, psychophysiology and behavioural electroencephalography Social psychology Attitudes and social cognition, social networks, self, group processes, social identity, industrial/organisational psychology Clinical science Clinical psychology, clinical neuropsychology Developmental psychology Cognitive, biological, emotional and social development across the lifespan Quantitative psychology Mathematical modelling of behaviour and social processes, development of tests and research methodology. The diversity and quality of our postgraduate programs are unrivalled in Australia. These are divided into the following broad types: Research Higher Degrees Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Master of Philosophy (MPhil) Professional training programs Master of Psychology: Clinical Psychology Clinical Neuropsychology Combined degree program Master of Psychology/PhD: Clinical Psychology Clinical Neuropsychology Information about these courses can be found in the following pages and at: Postgraduate Research Research Higher Degrees in psychology Graduates in psychology can complete a postgraduate research degree by undertaking either a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or a Master of Philosophy. In all cases, students will acquire the capacity to carry out independent research, and will demonstrate the ability to make an original contribution to knowledge in the discipline of psychology. The major difference between the Masters and PhD is that the former is more limited in scope. There are a number of well-equipped laboratories within Psychological Sciences in which research is carried out by our staff and students, often in collaboration with researchers from other University departments and affiliated institutions. Many of these laboratories have been successful in obtaining grants from the Australian Research Council (ARC), the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and other external granting bodies. These laboratories are very keen to accept postgraduate students to participate in their research programs.

Admission requirements Eligible applicants must normally possess either: (i) a Masters degree in psychology of an appropriate honours standard; or (ii) a degree including an accredited four-year sequence in psychology (or its equivalent) of at least H1 (or High Distinction) standard in the fourth year of study. Admission also depends on supervision and resource availability. Graduates without an H1 in their fourth P STUDENT PROFILE Superior research opportunities I began my studies in psychology to further my knowledge of conditioning dynamics after working for 10 years as a marine mammal trainer. Throughout my undergraduate degree in psychology, I had intended to pursue a postgraduate clinical coursework degree. However, I found the research experience during my honours year in psychology greatly rewarding, and decided to further develop my research skills by undertaking a PhD. I chose to complete my PhD at The University of Melbourne for a number of reasons. Firstly, the facilities and research opportunities available to me were superior, I felt, then were able to be accessed elsewhere. Additionally, the calibre of supervision available was very enticing, and it was easy to find expert guidance in my area of research: auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia. On a practical level, the university s central Melbourne location made transport unproblematic, and its close proximity to major hospitals made research participant recruitment much easier than it would have been in a more remote location. The PhD program has been a rewarding experience, so much so that I intend to continue to pursue the investigation of auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia through post-doctoral research. Like all PhD candidates in Psychological Sciences, the research and teaching skills I have gained during the PhD have opened up a world of employment and travel opportunities to me; exactly what I was hoping for.

That is why I decided to study psychology in my undergraduate degree back home in Florence. My true passion for research really started when I encountered the discipline of neuroscience during my Honours year. After graduating I worked as a professional clinical psychologist for a few years but, even though I enjoyed it very much, I had a strong urge to return to research. There was too much I still wanted to learn. That is why I decided to embark on an adventure in a new country, moving to Australia after being accepted into the PhD program at Melbourne University. I chose Melbourne because of its prestigious world wide reputation, and for the unique chance to work closely with my supervisor, Dr Olivia Carter. I am currently investigating visual attention and the susceptibility to visual distracters. Studying a PhD at Melbourne University is giving me the chance to work in a young, multicultural and intellectually stimulating laboratory. Most importantly, it is helping me to develop the mindset to be able to investigate every phenomena scientifically, which is the key to a future career in research..

8 Professional Training Programs The Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences offers the following professional training programs: Master of Psychology - Clinical Psychology - Clinical Neuropsychology Master of Psychology/PhD - Clinical Psychology - Clinical Neuropsychology Master of Psychology Clinical Psychology Clinical Neuropsychology Course objectives The purpose of the professional training programs is to train students in professional areas of the discipline of psychology. Each program is designed to provide: (i) a grounding in the theoretical, conceptual and empirical foundations of psychology and in the skills relevant to the various areas of professional practice; (ii) supervised practical experience; and (iii) research training in the area of professional specialisation. Accreditation All Masters programs serve as approved fifth and sixth years for membership of the relevant college of the Australian Psychological Society. Admission requirements In order to be eligible to apply for entry to the Master of Psychology, applicants must normally possess a degree including an APAC accredited four year sequence in psychology with a minimum average of H2A over the third and fourth year psychology results. The number of places in the Master of Psychology is limited by supervision and resource availability and selection is competitive. Applicants are ranked on the basis of their academic performance in third and fourth year psychology subjects and shortlisted for an interview to assess their suitability for clinical training. Commencement The programs commence at the beginning of the academic year. There is no mid-year entry. Deferral is only available in exceptional circumstances. In these rare cases, deferral will only be granted for a place in the course, not necessarily a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) funded place. Students will incur the course fees applicable for the actual year of commencement. Applicants who have not been granted a deferral and are unable to commence their studies at the beginning of the academic year may re-apply for entry. Applicants should be aware that reselection cannot be guaranteed. Candidature Professional courses are normally offered on a full-time basis. Course duration Master of Psychology: 2 years full-time. Course structure The Master of Psychology program involves coursework, placement and a minor thesis (6,000-10,000 words). A detailed course outline for each stream can be found at: study 8

9 Application details Application forms are available on the Psychological Sciences website: study/professional-masters-programs. Applications should be submitted to Psychological Sciences by the 31st October in the year prior to study. Fees The majority of places in the higher degree coursework programs are normally offered as Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP). Fee information is available at au/fees/ Fees are calculated according to individual course load. Full-time enrolment is normally 100 points per year, and halftime enrolment is normally 50 points per year. Fees are paid twice per year as part of the confirmation of each semester s enrolment. Students may apply to pay semester fees in two equal instalments (ie. four instalments for the year). All applicants are automatically considered for CSP and full fee places. All places are awarded on academic merit with the Commonwealth Supported Places awarded to the highest ranked applicants. Course outline During the first year of the course, students complete a number of subjects designed to provide an introduction to the relevant area and to train them in the basic professional skills in preparation for placements appropriate to their particular specialisation. Students also complete their first professional placement. In addition, students commence work on an empirical thesis in the first year of study, which is submitted for examination in the final year of the course. During the second year of study, students complete a series of advanced subjects. In addition, students participate in a series of practical training placements, which provide exposure to a variety of models of professional practice, and practical involvement with clients in a wide variety of situations. Students are expected to display an increased level of responsibility and competence as they proceed through the sequence of placements. Students are also expected to maintain high standards throughout the course. Contact hours Contact hours vary slightly from stream to stream. However, as a general guide, a 12.5 credit point subject involves nine contact hours per week for 12 semester weeks. Wherever possible, classes are scheduled across one to two days, with the remaining weekdays left free for work on the thesis and placement. It should be noted that these courses are higher degree professional training programs and placement and research components of these courses require a commitment throughout the year (ie. outside of University semesters). Class format Teaching in some of the core subjects (ie. those undertaken by all streams) may be in a lecture format. However, the majority of specialist classes are taught in a seminar format, with emphasis on practical and experiential learning. Assessment Assessment may vary slightly for individual subjects. However, as a general guide, a 12.5 credit point subject usually involves 4,000 words of written assessment, which may take the form of an essay or examination. HOW TO APPLY Master of Psychology Application forms are available on the Psychological Sciences website: edu.au/study/professionalmasters-programs/ Applications should be submitted to Psychological Sciences by the 31st October in the year prior to study.

10 Course structure - MPsych (Clinical) The full-time structure of the MPsych (Clinical) comprises 200 points distributed as follows: Thesis/Research Proposal: Placement subjects: Coursework: 62.5 points 50 points 87.5 points Year 1: Year long subjects PSYC90003 Research Proposal 25.0 pts PSYC90012 Clinical Placement pts Year 1: Semester 1 subjects PSYC90006 Basic Interventions PSYC90009 Psychosocial Perspectives on Disorders PSYC90029 Graduate Research Methods PSYC90030 Principles of Psychological Assessment PSYC90031 Introduction to Psychopathology Year 1: Semester 2 subjects PSYC90015 Advanced Psychopathology PSYC90007 Cognitive Behavioural Therapy PSYC90023 Child Psychopathology PSYC90011 PSYC90027 Psychology of Health Problems t Year 2: Year long subjects PSYC90005 Thesis 37.5 pts PSYC90077 Clinical Placement pts Year 2: Semester 1 subjects PSYC90008 Ethics & Professional Issues PSYC90010 Year 2: Semester 2 subjects PSYC90016 Advanced Psychological Assessment Mental Health Issues Across the Lifespan Biological Psych and Pharmacotherapy PSYC90078 Clinical Placement pts PSYC90017 Advanced Psychological Practice Master of Psychology (Clinical) The clinical psychology program at the University of Melbourne began in the early 1970s. The program enjoys an excellent reputation and is one of the premier clinical psychology programs in the country. The program aims to produce students with a strong knowledge base in organic and functional psychopathologies, combined with a high level of skill and acumen in the detection, assessment and diagnosis of various psychological conditions. Therapeutic skills are taught primarily within a broad cognitive-behavioural framework and developed over time within didactic, individual- and group-based contexts. In their second year, all students see patients referred to the Psychology Clinic and the Royal Children s Hospital. In addition to this, all students undergo compulsory field placements in mental health in their first year of the program. Other field placements in second and third year are tailored to a student s interests. One of the strengths of the program is its access to a variety of placement opportunities within hospital and community settings. The academic members of the clinical teaching staff are all active in both clinical work and research. Students are expected to both conduct high quality research and submit articles based on their research for publication in peerrefereed national and international journals. The expectation is that graduates of the clinical psychology program will not only become excellent clinicians but will go on to be leaders in the professional clinical community. Objectives This stream aims to provide graduates with the skills to work as professional clinical psychologists and to provide a thorough grounding in the discipline of clinical psychology, particularly in the area of mental illness. The program provides sound training in the nature, assessment and treatment of mental illness. Master of Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology) The clinical neuropsychology program aims to provide students with the skills to practice as professional neuropsychologists. Since its inception in the 1970s, the clinical neuropsychology program has emphasised hands on clinical training in the hospital setting. The breadth of this training experience has steadily increased over the years, and students are placed in a wide variety of settings that cover acute care neurology and neurosurgery, psychiatry, geriatrics, rehabilitation, and paediatrics. The placement experience enjoyed by our students is one of the most extensive in the world. The neuropsychological teaching staff is made up of four full-time senior members, and all are full members of the APS College of Clinical Neuropsychologists. Each member is actively involved in the practice of clinical neuropsychology (including supervision of clinical trainees) in one or more of the major teaching hospitals associate with the University of Melbourne, and are therefore well positioned to bring to the teaching situation a high level of clinical and research expertise. 10

11 The program in clinical neuropsychology aims to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary for competent practice in a variety of settings, and in relation to a variety of diagnostic problems and management issues. The acquisition of professional skills at a reasonably sophisticated level is the ultimate goal of the program. There is a strong emphasis on the need for world-class clinical research, with a significant number of students producing peer-reviewed publications. Objectives The objective of this stream is to provide graduates with the skills to work as professional neuropsychologists. Graduates should obtain a detailed understanding of the affective, behavioural and cognitive manifestations of diseases of the central nervous system, particularly those affecting the brain, in adults and children. Graduates are expected to acquire competence in various approaches to the study of brain disease, including basic and applied clinical sciences, and are expected to acquire an understanding of objective assessment of the many behavioural features of brain diseases. Combined degree program Master of Psychology/PhD Clinical Psychology Clinical Neuropsychology Objectives The combined degree program aims to provide students with the skills to work as a professional psychologist in the chosen domain of specialisation, and a thorough grounding in the knowledge base in that domain. It also provides students with an opportunity to undertake a substantial piece of original research in the domain of the specialisation, and to complete a thesis which: shows evidence of command of knowledge in relevant fields; demonstrates a thorough grasp of the appropriate methodological techniques and an awareness of their limitations; makes a distinct contribution to knowledge; demonstrates an ability to communicate research findings effectively. The combined degree program offers several advantages to prospective students interested in research in professional domains. Students undertaking the combined degree can complete the program in four years (rather than the five required by consecutive enrolments in the Master of Psychology and PhD programs) and undertake a PhD rather than a minor thesis. Details of the relevant Master of Psychology programs can be found in the Professional training programs section of this booklet, and details of the PhD thesis requirements can be found in the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) section.

During the period of study, students are required to engage in supervised research and submit a PhD thesis to the Melbourne School of Graduate Research that is examined according to standard PhD procedures. In addition, students are required to complete the coursework and placement requirements of the Master of Psychology program. The rationale for the course structures is that they permit students research activities to be informed by clinical and professional issues. Course duration Students are able to enrol in a full-time basis over four years. Admission requirements Australian students Entry to the combined MPsych/PhD program is only available after the successful completion of the first year of the Master of Psychology (MPsych) Clinical or Clinical Neuropsychology. Interested applicants are invited to apply to transfer from the first year of the MPsych into the second year of the combined program and receive full credit for their first year studies in the MPsych. International students International students should refer to the information provided by International Admissions: edu.au/admissions In order to be eligible to apply for entry to the Master of Psychology or the MPsych/ PhD, applicants must normally possess a degree including an APAC accredited four-year sequence in psychology (or equivalent) with a minimum average of H2A over their third- and fourth-year Psychology subjects. It is recommended that previous international qualifications be assessed by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) to determine comparability. Applicants must complete an application through the International Admissions application process at: edu.au/admissions/applications 12

13 An application must also be submitted directly through Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences study/combined-mpsych-phd MPsych/PhD applicants are required to gain the commitment of a suitable supervisor and have developed a research project proposal before submitting an application. Fees Australian students are granted a RTS (Research Training Scheme) place for years 2 to 4 of the course as for PhD research students. International fees for 2015 information is be available from the web site at: au/admissions/fees Please note that course fees are revised annually. Scholarships From the beginning of the second year, the majority of a student s enrolment is in the research thesis. They are therefore consider to be Research Higher Degree candidates. As a result, such students may apply for a postgraduate research scholarship in years two to four of the combined program. The criterion for the award of scholarships is that applied to commencing PhD students, namely academic performance in the previously completed degree (for most students this is a combination of results for the third and fourth years of their undergraduate degree).

Through my undergraduate studies, I developed a more in-depth awareness of a wide range of psychology topics and it became clear to me that I wished to further my studies. As I was interested in both the applied and research aspects of psychology, I decided to undertake the combined Master of Psychology (Clinical)/PhD course. This program will enable me to work as a Clinical Psychologist, providing assessment and treatment to individuals experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties. Additionally, the PhD provides the opportunity to further develop my research skills and to conduct research in my particular area of interest, adolescent wellbeing. I chose to move interstate and undertake my postgraduate studies at The University of Melbourne for numerous reasons. These included Melbourne University s international reputation, the quality and experience of the staff, the diversity of the students and the university s collaboration with other organisations. Now in my final year of the program, I am still confident that moving to this university was a very good decision. I have received a high standard of training, with the support and guidance of ethical and experienced staff. Furthermore, I have been fortunate in collaborating with external organisations in both my research and clinical work. The University of Melbourne has provided me with opportunities and training which will be invaluable when entering the psychology profession. Nazli Kayhan Master of Psychology (Clinical) 15

P STUDENT PROFILE Inspired by the passion & energy of our lecturers One of the early catalysts for my deep interest in neuropsychology was the impact of a close family member suffering an ischaemic stroke. My personal involvement in his subsequent care and rehabilitation has continued to feed my curiosity and passion for studying and practicing within this field. This led me to undertake two undergraduate degrees with majors in Psychology and Neuroscience, which gave me a good theoretical understanding of how the brain affects our behaviour.. It was a natural progression for me to undertake Honours and then a Master of Psychology/ PhD (Clinical Neuropsychology), under the instruction of academic and clinical experts with high international reputation. My research experience to date has given me a great foundation for understanding the brain mechanisms involved in neurocognitive systems, and this course now allows me to access these systems by way of diagnostic tools, in order to make the transition from the laboratory to an applied clinical setting. This is one of the key factors in the appeal of the Melbourne course. I have made a very supportive network of friends with similar interests to my own, and I am continually encouraged and inspired by the passion and energy of our lecturers..
