Approach to learning and assessment

Students will experience a range of learning environments – lectures, individual research, individual and group work. Lectures, which are used extensively in the program to communicate knowledge and guide student learning, are complemented by on-line learning materials where appropriate.

These methods and approaches have been selected so that you will be equipped to undertake post-graduate studies in psychology or have the skills required to adapt to and work competently in workplaces that value knowledge and training in psychology (e.g., human resources, psychosocial rehabilitation).

The assessment in most courses is undertaken through a mixture of continual and final assessment. Students will be assessed by a variety of methods as appropriate to the material being taught and the skills being acquired. Written examinations, multiple choice quizzes, essays, assignments, oral and written individual and group presentations, and a final thesis report are examples of the types of assessments used.

If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.

If you have already developed areas of skill and knowledge included in this program (for example, through prior studies or work experience), you can apply for credit once you have enrolled in this program. There is information on the RMIT University website about how to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit/he
