Why work as a psychologist in Australia?
One thing to keep in mind is that Psychology is one of the professions demanded by the Australian government, so if you are a psychologist you have options to apply for the skilled visa and thus be able to work full time in Australia.
In order to work as a psychologist in Australia you must have an English degree that certifies your knowledge of the language. For example, IELTS with a minimum score of 7 or at least a B in all parts of the OET. In addition, you will have to have a valid psychology degree to practice as a psychologist in Australia.
This is where the first obstacle arises, and in Australia, psychologists must complete 6 years of training to get the degree. Thus, for example, the degree of psychology in Spain is not equivalent. For this reason, recognition by the competent body associated with the Australian government is necessary to prove that you have the training and knowledge necessary to work as a psychologist in this country.
Here we tell you what steps you should take to get the degree that will allow you to work as a psychologist in Australia.
