About the school


Our psychology courses were first taught in 1964, and the School of Psychology and Speech Pathology was founded in 2001.

Today, with approximately 70 full-time academic staff, we are committed to providing a rewarding and relevant learning experience for our students.

We pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable manner, and welcome opportunities to talk with prospective students.

We look forward to meeting you.
