No, it's 3 years for social work, unless there is a new double degree combining psychology and social work, in which case you could probably get away with social work/science degree for 4 years.


The undergraduate for psychology is 3 years, plus 3 if you want to go on to become a registered psychologist. The breakdown is as follows:


3 years full time for psychology undergraduate, which can be undertaken either as an Arts course or a Science course,


1 year of post-graduate psychology, either in the form of honours, or a graduate diploma in psychology,


2 years Masters degree, in the area of psychology that you like, or a 3 year PhD in psychology. Many students are going the PhD route in anticipation of Psychology becoming accepted on the Medicare registry (you will be able to charge your clients on Medicare, thus saving them lots of money. That's if we still have Medicare in years to come).


Good luck!
