What is Applied Psychology?

Jan 19, 2023

You’ve heard that experience when studying enables you to enter the job market a lot easier after qualifying. But what does that entail and how do you make it happen? Especially when you’re studying a full-time qualification.

Work Integrated Learning

At SACAP, practical experience is a hallmark of our curriculum. This means that, as part of your studies, you get to apply your theoretical knowledge in the field. SACAP has formed relationships with various psychosocial organisations in the counselling, community, health and welfare services. When completing the Work Integrated Learning module, you will apply your knowledge at one of our many placement sites. This will give you:

  • Valuable and practical experience before you graduate
  • The chance to develop in a particular field
  • Opportunity to make a positive impact in South African communities
  • Counsellor aptitudes and ethical awareness
  • The confidence to enter into the workplace

Our Students Say it Best

We could go on and on about the benefits of applying yourself in the field. Hear what our students have to say about what “Applied” means to them.
