					         Honours in Psychology Application Instructions
                       Deakin University
(1) To apply go to the online applicant portal at and follow the prompts.

You should submit one application only into Psychology Honours, for the course which reflects
your undergraduate degree, i.e.,
    with a Bachelor of Arts (or Commerce, Law, Business, etc), you should apply to do course
     H451, the Bachelor of Arts (Honours);
    with a Bachelor of Science (or Medical Science, Forensic Science, etc), you should apply
     to do course H450, the Bachelor of Science (Honours);
    with a Bachelor of Applied Science (or Psychology, Health Science, etc), you should apply
     to do course H452, the Bachelor of Applied Science (Honours).

(2) You should also consider applying for the equivalent fourth year qualification, the Graduate
Diploma of Psychology (course H650). A successful application to this fee-paying course will not
affect your chances of gaining entry into Honours (even if you accept a place in the Graduate
Diploma you will still be in the running for a place in Honours).

(3) To facilitate the selection process please also complete the following information in the box
on the following page and email it to us as per the following instructions: Answer all questions in
the box, copy your answers, and paste them into an email message. Email this message to To ensure that your application is processed please include the
following phrase in the Subject line of the email: HONOURS APPLICATION 2010.

(4) After applications close, the following will happen:
           1) All applications will be assessed for eligibility. They will be graded, sorted, and
               given an initial assessment on the basis of marks from current academic transcript
               provided. The selection process will be finalised when we receive the final marks
               from the Deakin database.
           2) First-round offers will be made in the second week of December. Preference is
               given to eligible Deakin students, however a small number of places may be
               awarded to non-Deakin students. Successful students will receive a letter of offer
               of a place in the course from the School of Psychology, which will require a timely
               acceptance of the offer by the student before a specific date. If the student will be
               away from the address provided on the application form, the onus is on the
               student to arrange for an authorised person to accept or decline the invitation.
               Please give this person a letter (signed by you) authorizing them to act on your
           3) Second-round offers may be made, based on places made available by first-round
               offers being declined.
           4) Offers will be made into February 2010 until places are filled.
           5) ALL students will receive formal notification of the result of their application,
               including those who are unsuccessful. These letters will not be received by you
               until 2010.
