Applications to study in 2020 will be open from 15 July to 30 August 2019
Only twenty-five (25) places will be available on the part-time programme. Thus acceptance into the programme is competitive and is provisional upon the following criteria:
- Completion of an undergraduate degree with Psychology as a major;
- Good marks achieved at third year Psychology level (please note that while University rules do not allow acceptance of students into the programme whose third year average falls below 65%, attainment of a 65% average is often insufficient to be offered a place due to a high demand for places in the course);
- The principle of racial equity;
- Preference on the part-time programme will be given to students who have completed their undergraduate degree on a part-time basis.
There are two steps to the application process:
Step 1: all applicants will be required to make an online application through the Wits central applications site (Student Enrolment Centre: SENC) by following this link. Those wishing to study part-time should select the part-time option. This application requires that you upload an official copy of your academic transcript.
Step 2: you will then be emailed a personalised link to the Psychology Departmental application form (hosted on the SurveyMonkey platform). You will need to click on this link and complete the form before the closing date – 31 August 2018. If you are unable to complete the application in one sitting, please save your application and return to it later. If you experience a loss of Internet connection, the link in the email can be used to navigate back to your application – responses on the most recent page reached may need to be recaptured. Please retain the email invitation until your application has been submitted. The link will no longer work once you have submitted the application (by clicking ‘Done’ on the last page), and/or after the closing date.
If you do not receive this email invitation within two weeks of having completed the central Wits application, please send an email to Jabu.Maseko@wits.ac.za or email@example.com requesting the link (also check spam/junkmail folders on a regular basis).
The online application form will ask for information relating to demographics, type of high school attended, previous tuition funding, and marks from previous/current degrees.
NB: The closing date for completing the online departmental application form is 30 August 2019 for proposed study in 2020.
PLEASE NOTE: Your online application to the University via the Student Enrolment Centre (SENC) is incomplete until you have completed the departmental application form. Both forms are essential.
Application queries can be directed via telephone to Ms Jabu Maseko on +27 11 717 4553 or via email to Thomas Tshikovha (firstname.lastname@example.org).
PLEASE NOTE: It is unlikely that you will have heard yet whether or not you have been accepted into the Psychology Honours programme before the closing date for applications for financial aid. If you require financial aid, please apply for it in the event that you are accepted into the programme. You must make applications for financial aid separately to the Bursaries and Scholarship Office. Other sources of funding are also available – please look for these on the Fees and Funding website and apply where relevant.
