A successful application to a Doctor of Philosophy / Master of Psychology (Health) program involves a number of considerations:
Academic background and Experience
Selection for this program is highly competitive; an applicant must demonstrate that they have sufficient background and experience in independent supervised research and Psychology to successfully complete both a PhD and a Master of Psychology (Health) as detailed in the academic program rules.
In general terms, entry is available to graduates with a First Class Honours degree in Psychology, or a program recognised by the University of Adelaide as an equivalent award and is subject to referee reports and a structured interview conducted by a panel.
English Language Proficiency Requirement
As English is the language of instruction at the University of Adelaide, all applicants must provide evidence of their proficiency before an offer of a place is made.
Availability of supervision and resourcing
In addition to the academic requirements, the Head of School must certify that your proposed research project is acceptable to the School and that there are sufficient supervisory and other resources and facilities available to enable your candidature to be completed successfully. Accordingly, discussing your research interests with your prospective supervisors/School is essential prior to submitting your PhD application.
