How to apply

You can apply for postgraduate study with HETI through our online application. If you require support or have questions you are welcome to contact our friendly Learning Pathways Unit for assistance with the application process. Read through the requirements for the Admissions process before starting. You will need to supply documentation appropriate to the application you submit.

1. Entry Requirements

There are basic entry requirements descriptions available for Psychiatric Medicine and Applied Mental Health Studies.  Note that the type of documentation to establish you meet entry requirements varies depending on your chosen course and type of study. These are detailed in the process description for online admission.

Applicants need to provide Proof of Identity which included a copy as a Photo ID (Drivers Licence or Passport). If applying based on academic qualifications, you will need to supply certified academic transcripts. If you are applying based on your extensive work experience (and you don't have an academic qualification) you will need to submit a recent CV detailing this experience.

2. Advanced Standing

Applicants may request that their previous learning and experience be assessed for advanced standing towards a postgraduate award. If you wish to apply, please complete the Advanced Standing Application Form as you will need to upload it. Note that students who have completed NSW Institute of Psychiatry (NSWIOP) do not need to apply for Advanced Standing but should supply your academic transcript or details at the Qualifications section of the admission application.

Applications for advanced standing close earlier than standard applications. Please see due dates on the Academic Calendar. To find out more on Advanced standing please read the Advanced Standing policy
