Prospective Students

Prospective students interested in pursuing postgraduate studies through the Alan J Flisher Centre for Public Mental Health can either apply for an M.Phil in Public Mental Health (one year programme which includes two weeks of coursework in Cape Town or Stellenbosch around Jan/Feb, and the completion of a dissertation by distance) or pursue a PhD through the Centre.

Every year, 5 Fellowships are awarded by the AFFIRM Programme, funded by NIMH, for the M.Phil in Public Mental Health. More recently, PRIME funded by UKAID, was also able to award a Fellowship, and may be able to do so again in future years subject to available funding.

Call for Applications and Fellowships are announced in June, and the Application Deadline is 30 September.
