    Hi, my daughter is interested in a career in art therapy. She is currently in year 12 doing her As level. We are living abroad in the UAE and we would like to gain more information regarding the requirements for enrolling in such a course. We are aware that it is not offered in South Africa yet. We would appreciate some feedback.
