SELECTION FOR PROFESSIONAL TRAINING
MASTERS IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY AND COMMUNITY COUNSELING
DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY
UNIVERSITY OF STELLENBOSCH
Thank you for considering Stellenbosch University for your professional training in Clinical Psychology and Community Counselling. Stellenbosch University is committed to offering professional training in psychology that will equip graduates to confront the challenges and diverse issues presented by the South African Mental Health context. We invite applications from candidates with a strong academic record, a proven commitment to community involvement and empowerment through psychological interventions, and a reflexive approach to their own development and functioning. Although we train both Counselling and Clinical Psychologists, in 2017 we will only offer training to individuals who would intend to register with the Health Professionals Council as Clinical Psychologists.
A maximum of ten students will be invited to participate in our programme in 2017. This means that the selection process is highly competitive and that applicants inevitably experience the process as extremely stressful. Although it is impossible to remove the stressfulness from the selection experience, we have committed ourselves to a process that we consider to be thorough and sensitive, yet fair and transparent. We also do encourage you to use the selection process as an opportunity to get to know more about our programme.
2017 Applications open on 2 May 2016
Selection week: 10 - 12 August 2016
