Masters Preparation Session 2023
5 hour recording featuring 10 mental health professionals, discussing 11 different topics surround psychology masters applications, selections and interviews.
Cognition & Co understands that the journey to becoming a Psychologist is not always as linear as it might seem. Due to the ethical nature of the profession; training is rigorous, selections are arduous, and applications can be tedious. The journey is so often clouded in mystery and fraught with rumors; but Cognition & Co is here to provide some clarity and help the Psychology students of South Africa get themselves prepared for the road ahead of them.
Every year we host a massive online webinar for Psychology students where we invite a number of Psychologists to share their professional insight and understanding, to help inspire and motivate the students as they make their way into Selection Season. While there is a focus on the Masters application and interview processes, this conference is designed to provide insight to all students, at all levels of studying.
Our event consists of 10 psychological professionals discussing 11 different topics, all with the goal of expanding your perspective and helping you reflect on your own journey;
1️⃣ Zahraa Surtee – Your Path Matters; Finding your Category
2️⃣ Mbalenhle Gumbi – Getting into the Application Mindset
3️⃣ Cayley Jorgensen – Upskilling Yourself; Unique skills for Unique Graduates

This event is not aimed to prepare students for a specific university or selection process; it has been created as a means to assist students in the initial stages of networking with professionals, and help unlock the reflective thinking processes that will help students understand who they are as they begin their journey.
