The School of Psychology at Flinders University and the Department of Psychology at HELP University (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) have embarked on a unique project to create two new co-joint degrees in psychology. The two new degrees are:

• Bachelor of Psychological Science (BPsychSc)
• Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) (BPsychSc (Hons))

The two degrees will be offered co-jointly by Flinders University and HELP University and will be delivered entirely in Malaysia. The degrees have been established to comply with the criteria specified by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) so that graduates from the BPsychSc (Hons) will have a degree that is recognised in Australia as a four-year Honours degree in Psychology. Accordingly, graduates of the BPsychSc (Hons) will be able to apply for entry into postgraduate degrees in Australia such as Masters and Doctoral programmes in clinical psychology as well as postgraduate degrees by research.

Enrolment to both degrees can only be made at HELP University and students must attend the campus in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). This degree commenced with its first intake in January 2011. Intakes occur January, May and August each year. Further enquiries should be directed to:
