Lots of enquiries on James Cook University Singapore's Master of Psychology (Clinical) programme coming in lately. It seems like there's a lack of information out there, so I thought I'd break it down for prospective students.

Yes, this video is skewed towards the clinical psychology programme offered by JCU Singapore. But really its because I can provide some insights, having been part of the recruitment process the past 2 years.

3 steps to being a registered psychologist in Singapore

  1. 1. 3 STEPS SINGAPORE to Becoming a Registered Psychologist in
  2. 2. Regardless of whether you're in it for the status, or have a desire to help society, psychology is a tough course of study, with a longer than average pathway to being fully registered and workforce ready.
  3. 3. BACHELOR'S DEGREE IN PSYCHOLOGY STEP 1
  4. 4. PhD in Materials Engineering? Master of Counselling? Bachelor Degree in PR and Journalism?
  5. 5. NOT ACCEPTED
  6. 6. Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) The course selection is especially important when you decide to go with an Australian university. Start by making sure the degree is accredited by APAC.
  7. 7. HONOURS DEGREE / GRADUATE DIPLOMA STEP 2
  8. 8. SOMETIMES WORDS HAVE TWO MEANINGS
  9. 9. Honours in Singapore Indicates level of academic achievement in a Bachelor's Degree Honours in Australia Research Degree one enrolls into after completing a Bachelor's Degree
  10. 10. MASTERS DEGREE IN APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY STEP 3
  11. 11. Applied The key word here is applied. Which means there must be a practical component as part of the course.
  12. 12. When it comes to clinical psychology, the National Council of Social Service pretty much recommends only two programmes locally. Two Recommended Programmes
  13. 13. National University of Singapore James Cook University Master of Psychology (Clinical)
  14. 14. NOT ALL HONOURS MEET APAC ACCREDITATION STANDARDS
  15. 15. There are two popular Honours programmes offered in Singapore that unfortunately don't meet APAC criteria. One of them is by a US university taught out of a private institute in Clementi and another one by a UK university taught out of a private institute in Queenstown. Take Note
  16. 16. THIS IS LESS AN ISSUE OF QUALITY, THAN IT IS ABOUT THE INTEGRATION OF DIFFERENT SYSTEMS
  17. 17. CAVEAT EMPTOR!
  18. 18. SPS Membership You can register as a Student Member simply by being enrolled into a psychology course at a tertiary institution SRP Registration Completed a Master of Applied Psychology which includes at least 1000 hours of practical training
  19. 19. Ask the Right Questions Don't ask the school if the course makes you eligible for SPS membership. Ask if the course meets the requirement for SRP Registration instead!
  20. 20. DISCLAIMER!
  21. 21. Registration is Not Compulsory The practice of psychology is not regulated in Singapore. Anyone may call themselves a psychologist and practice. But in my humble opinion, that makes registration even more important!
