SPPU to discontinue its PG psychology diploma programme

Due to low admissions, the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has decided to discontinue its post-graduate diploma course in Clinical and Counselling Psychology. According to the HOD, only 12 candidates applied for admission this year, and only five of them paid fees until October 20. The course has a maximum enrolment of 24 students.

The university was having trouble filling its specialized psychology courses, despite the rising interest in psychology as a profession and the high demand for counsellors in the post-Covid world. In fact, the institution stated last week that it would be cancelling a post-graduate diploma course due to a lack of enrolment.

The course in question, which has been available for a while, is the post-graduate diploma in professional skills in clinical and counselling psychology.

There are 24 seats available in the course, which is intended for psychology graduates.

Dr. R. S. Mhaske, the department’s head, stated that only five of the 12 students who applied for admission to the course this academic year had paid their fees as of October 20.

According to university rules, at least 12 admissions, or 50% of the intake capacity, must be made in order for the courses to be offered. The institution was compelled to cancel the course for this academic year since only five admissions met the basic requirements.

The course’s restricted eligibility, according to former HoD Dr. Vilas Adhav, may be one of the causes.
