Course content

This is a Pre-Master's programme aimed at postgraduate students who are intending to undertake an MA in an area related to counselling and therapy but need to develop or consolidate their language skills in academic English, to study background theory, and familiarise themselves both with ways of working in British academic culture and in the standards required at Master's level.

Half of the programme is made up of English for Academic Purposes modules, concentrating on different areas of language development: Academic Writing and Grammar Development and Academic Listening and Speaking. The other half of the programme is taught in the Department of Professional and Community Education and covers the areas of therapeutic practice, its context and theory.

You will have a personal tutor and will receive support researching and considering the various MA degree options for your future studies.

You are encouraged throughout the programme to work independently and in particular to use the resources available in the Goldsmiths Library.
