Entry requirements

Entry onto the MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy is a postgraduate programme and normally requires a prior first degree (minimum 2:2) and the ability to work at level 7. The Graduate Certificate in Integrative Counselling Studies is offered at level 6 and is designed to allow graduates without a clinical background in counselling or psychotherapy to develop necessary knowledge and skills in this area for progression to the MSc. Applicants with a first degree in Counselling or equivalent may gain direct entry to the MSc, whilst those with a Foundation Degree or Diploma in Counselling may commence the MSc upon successful completion of Newman's BA Top-up award in Integrative Counselling. Additional requirements are: substantial relevant work experience with either children or adults; personal suitability based on personal qualities such as resilience and the aptitude for psychotherapeutic work. Our unique flexibility of entry means that offers will be on the basis of individual merit based on academic, professional and personal skills and qualities, and will be assessed by interview.

Course content

The MSc Integrative Psychotherapy, leading to professional registration with UKCP in Psychotherapy or Psychotherapeutic Counselling, is suitable if you are a graduate and wish to achieve professional registration in psychotherapy or psychotherapeutic counselling. UKCP operates separate registers for practitioners who work with young people and adults, and successful completion of this programme leads to entry onto either of these specialist registers. A 60 credit Graduate Certificate in Integrative Counselling Skills is also available to enable you to develop your clinical skills in psychotherapy, and provides a bridge to the MSc programme for applicants without prior clinical qualifications.
