Program Description

The Bachelor in Counselling and Psychotherapy (BA) course is designed for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists to top up their training to a full BA and engage in practical research. You’ll develop your skills, knowledge, clinical practice and enhance employability with a choice of two specialist routes: Counselling Adults or Counselling Children and Young People.

Route A.Adult. This route offers you the chance to develop your understanding of therapeutic work with adults with a specific focus on sexual issues in therapy. It also offers an innovative module introducing you to the emerging area of digital media in therapy.

Route B. Children & Young People. This route is designed to meet a number of the BACP Competences for working with young people (2014). This will help build skills and knowledge that enable you to develop a clinical specialism with children and young people, with a specific focus on working with creative media.

• Tuition fees for students who have citizens' rights after Brexit: £8,625/year
