Additional Information

This award of the Foundation Degree is achieved after three years part time study (240 credits), which includes 100 hours of supervised professional practice. Students will have to obtain their own placement in year 2. For those not intending to gain a practice qualification, an optional academic route is available leading to a Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling Studies, which is completed in the second year of the programme. We believe it is important to emphasise to prospective applicants that this course requires a substantial commitment of time and effort and can prove demanding in a number of respects; intellectually, physically, emotionally, personally and financially. The following illustration outlines course requirements and costs in addition to tuition and registration fees over the 3 years: 100 hours of supervised professional practice; 30 hours of personal therapy @ approximately £40 per hour (£1200); Clinical supervision; approximately 20 sessions of 1 hour, costing approximately £40 per session (£800); Professional Association membership ~ approximately £65 per year (£195) (NCS, BACP, IACP, ACC, UKCP…,); Personal Insurance ~ approximately £50 per year (£100) For further information contact: Course Director Joe Mc Grann (028 7127 6365).
