ECU Launches Accelerated Online Graduate Diploma of Psychology

Edith Cowan University (ECU) Online is thrilled to launch its new accelerated online Graduate Diploma of Psychology.  The launch of their new postgraduate online course has come as good news to students looking to study psychology in order to expand their current skillset. It is also a great option for students who would like to begin the pathway to becoming a registered psychologist. With the new 100% online Graduate Diploma of Psychology, students can now build their core knowledge of psychological science, and gain a comprehensive understanding of human development and behaviour. 

The demand for registered psychologists and professionals with outstanding skills in psychology is growing in Australia. ECU is committed to empowering students with knowledge of psychology, promoting psychological health and well-being, and preparing students to become registered psychologists. ECU’s Graduate Diploma of Psychology course is designed as a pathway for those who have not had any prior education in psychology but want to have a career as a registered psychologist. It can also be a great option for students who work in human-centred fields like marketing, education or human resource management, who want to apply skills in psychology to their current role.

The course is equivalent to a bachelor's degree in psychology and equips the students with skills that can even be applied to their current field. There is also an entry pathway for students who don’t have a bachelor's degree. Students can enroll in the course in January, March, May, July, September or November.
