Entry Requirements

The EAPTI-GPTIM is licensed to deliver and award the following post-graduate programmes which lead to a qualification classified at an MQF Level 7 or Level 8. In order to enrol for such programmes, a number of criteria need to be satisfied. Such entry requirements ensure that the learning experience is a next step that builds upon the learning, knowledge and experience that you have already acquired.

 

In some programmes such criteria are also necessary in order to support the prospective student to be in line with European and Maltese standards, in relation to the education received, the practice of Psychotherapy, and existing regulations and laws, from the very start. For example, the Master in Gestalt Psychotherapy programme entry requirements are important since satisfying such criteria immediately sets the ground to be able to apply for registration/warranting with relevant bodies, such as the EAGT, EAP and the Board for the Psychotherapy Act in Malta, on completing the course, so as to consequently begin practicing psychotherapy under employment or privately.

The entry requirements for each programme may be found below.
