Part-time fees per 30 credits - £1,200
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Applicants should have:
An honours degree at 2:1 or above
PLUS some knowledge of counselling skills
PLUS experience of working with people in a helping capacity.
• Applicants are required to submit a separate personal statement of at least 500 words in support of their interest in pursuing counsellor training. Eligible applicants will then be invited to attend a small group information session, plus a formal one to one interview.
• Applicants with suitable prior learning may seek direct entry. You may gain exemption from the three year one courses thereby completing the programme in two years.
• Applicants seeking direct entry will be required to present a portfolio demonstrating successful completion of counselling training at equivalent postgraduate certificate and/or diploma level.
• Applicants who do not have English as their first language, must have an IELTS score of 7.0 or above or an equivalent rating in another recognised language testing system.
No work experience is required.
The Programme is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and offers students the required training component for individual counsellor accreditation, with the BACP.
