Please note that Psychology degrees that are not equivalent to a Psychology degree recognized by the National Council which is responsible for the recognition of higher qualifications in the Republic of Cyprus (KY.S.A.T.S.), may lead to student’s exclusion from internships in state and other mental health centers. Moreover, in case that the student’s undergraduate psychology degree is not equivalent to a recognized psychology degree by the National Council, despite completion of studies in the M.Sc. Program in Clinical/Counselling Psychology, may result in exclusion from the Bachelor Graduates Registry maintained by the Registration Council of Psychologists and this may lead to an inability to register in the Registry of Licenced Psychologists.
