The MA (Clinical Psychology) programme leads to registration as Clinical Psychologist with the Professional Board of Psychology of the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).

This full-time programme encompasses the broad spectrum of Clinical Psychology. The programme consists of a research component (completion of a minor dissertation) as well as attending workshops, contact sessions and practical work.

After successful completion of the Degree, students apply for an internship in Clinical Psychology. In accordance with regulations by the Department of Health, students also have to complete one year of Community Service after completion of the internship.

Admission requirements

Students should be in possession of an Honours Degree or an equivalent degree in Psychology. Students are admitted to the programme after they have been evaluated as suitable candidates by the Department through a selection process, which takes place in August.

The number of students allowed into the programme is determined by the availability of staff, the availability of internships and market demands. The closing date for applications and the dates for selection are determined annually by the Department. Application forms and information are obtainable from the Department.
