Australian College of Applied Psychology


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP). For the last 30 years, we have been teaching applied psychology and preparing our students to change lives – to make a difference. Our team of experienced academics and industry professionals are committed to delivering a suitable learning environment and the latest in work practices and industry developments. We provide a distinctive educational experience based on hands-on learning. Our philosophy is simple: The best way for you to learn about human interaction is to interact.

Whether you want to build more effective communication and team management skills or get the qualifications you need to practice as a counselor, psychologist, youth worker, social worker, caseworker, or coach, we aim to produce graduates who can take the skills they learn at ACAP and apply them immediately in the workforce.

You can choose to study on-campus at one of our centrally located city campuses, by online delivery, or both. Whichever you choose, our support team will provide you with the necessary academic and personal support throughout your studies to achieve your goals.
