Stellenbosch University, Clinical Psychology and Community Counselling 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.


Key facts

The Clinical Psychology and Community Counselling programme at the Stellenbosch University focuses on the identification and treatment of psychopathology in children and adults, as well as on the development, implementation and assessment of preventative and remedial counselling programmes. The theoretical component is presented in English and consists of different modules which cover the broad terrain of Clinical and Counselling Psychology. The practical component of the programme requires you to be involved in the diagnostic assessment and psychotherapeutic treatment of adult patients, children and families, and to undertake individual community projects. You must be involved continuously throughout the year (approximately 15 to 20 hours per week) with the Welgevallen Community Psychological Clinic, community clinics and within departmental community projects. An assignment, based on independent research under supervision, must also be completed.
