Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology (Coursework) (Selection Degree)

Applications for the Masters in Clinical Psychology 2016 are open till 30 June 2015.
Online applications will only open from 15 May 2015.

A clinical psychologist typically works either for a medical institution or in private practice, administers psychological tests to diagnose mental conditions, and performs psychotherapy. An appropriate directed master's degree, an internship of 12 months, and registration with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) as a clinical psychologist is currently required.

The master's degree in clinical psychology is very intensive, and only a small number of students are selected each year.

Enquiries: Mrs E Meyer (meyerew@unisa.ac.za)

There are plans to change the requirements for registration with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) at a future date. This will probably include the requirement that a candidate should achieve a doctoral degree before registration will be possible. More information on envisioned changes and time scales can be obtained from the HPCSA (hpcsa@hpcsa.co.za).
