Rationale and Purpose for the programme

The programme is intended for individuals who wish to register and practice as psychometrists.
The purpose of the programme is to prepare psychometrists to function effectively in any appropriate setting, including independent practice, by providing training and experience within the relevant scope of practice. It will provide students with advanced knowledge, skills and attitudes related to assessing, understanding, explaining and developing human behaviour in a multi-cultural context. In addition to this, the programme will give students entrance into the National Examination of the Professional Board for Psychology, after which they can register and practice as a psychometrist. Value will be added to the qualifying individual in terms of relevant knowledge and skills and these will hold pertinent benefits to the institution and society in which they will practice the knowledge and skills.


All applicants will be subjected to selection. The selection will be based on academic merit, equity and redress considerations, and suitability for the profession.

Applications to open on the 15th September 2022.

Applications will close on the 07th October 2022.
