AHPRA is now calling for online applications for registration from students who are in their final year of an approved program of study.
Students due to complete study at the end of 2015 are urged to apply for registration four to six weeks before finishing their course. Fourth-year psychology students can also apply.
Students are encouraged to apply online; however, some applicants may be required to complete a paper application form.
All applicants are required to return supporting documents to AHPRA by mail to complete their application. It is important that this is done as soon as possible after applying online - see Next Steps Checklist.
Certain applicants will need to apply for an international criminal history check (ICHC) before submitting their application for registration.
Students are encouraged to read the information under Graduate applications, including FAQ and the Powerpoint: Health practitioner registration - What you need to know.
Profession-specific information, including whether final-year students must apply for provisional or general registration, is available on the National Board websites:
