Psychology training in Australia is a multifaceted pathway with not all roads leading to Rome. Students wishing eventually to practice psychology have multiple routes from which to choose, with only a select few gaining access to, and completing, postgraduate qualifications psychology. There are multiple stakeholders involved in the training and regulatory processes for psychology both in the universities that provide the academic training and in the community post-degree completion. There are also currently discrepancies among the different stakeholders in what they require as a minimum standard of entry and training, which can cause confusion for both students and educators alike. Essentially, psychology training in Australia is in a state of flux, with the ultimate goal of producing world-class standard psychologists. The outcomes of these changes are yet to be seenwe are, after all, psychologists, not psychics.
