  2. Dear Kulsoom,

    We believe that at present, Master of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology has not been conducted by any tertiary institutions within Malaysia. Furthermore, majority of the postgraduate programs in Malaysia are awarded as Master and Ph.D..

    Since you have done your Master of Science in Clinical Psychology and considering to pursue your study in Malaysia, we strongly recommend you to enroll as a Ph.D. student by having research area in Clinical Psychology.
    This is because your Master degree may be recognized or having the equivalent qualification in order to enroll as a Ph.D. student.

    Based on you expertise (Clinical Psychology), we had found one institution that you may wish to choose to study in, please kindly click on this link for further information Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at IMU or IMU for homepage.
