Psychology is well underway in becoming a borderless science and discipline, with universal knowledge that can be applied in countries across the globe. This study explores the history and current status of psychology education in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia as these are major areas in which transnational exchanges in psychology education take place. The data accrued from research for this article informs discussions on the universality of psychology education today and raises important questions about the future of the discipline in Asian societies.
