Local networking

The structure of the APS, through Branches, Colleges and Interest Groups, allows all members to network with colleagues and participate in the Society's work.

APS Branches

Branches support members and promote the profession of psychology at the regional level. They encourage networking between members in their local area, and represent and advance their interests and special needs.

All members of the Society automatically become members of their local Branch. View details of the APS Branches.

APS College Membership

(Specialist recognition)

Nine APS Colleges represent a range of specialist areas in psychology and APS Members can gain recognition of their specialist qualifications through membership.

Each College promotes its own field, maintains practice standards and quality assurance, and supports the education and professional development of specialist practitioners.

Colleges may hold seminars, courses and conferences, publish newsletters and perform a range of activities on behalf of Members. Associate Members, Affiliates and Student Subscribers may also join Colleges. View details of the APS Colleges.

They cover diverse areas such as Rural and Remote Psychology, Buddhism and Psychology and Coaching Psychology.

Membership is open to all APS members and the groups also advise the Society on issues related to their area of interest. Interest Groups may hold seminars, courses and conferences, publish newsletters and perform a range of activities on behalf of members. View details of the APS Interest Groups.
