Course content

The MA Counselling and Psychotherapy top-up course is aimed at students who have completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy or equivalent professional training.

You can also use it to build on previous counselling and therapy qualifications or training, or for an MA degree through independent research.

Students take an independent study approach, supported by individual academic supervision and workshops on research methodology.

The final award is an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy, with advanced standing of 120 credits for previous qualifications or training.

We follow current research into what actually works in counselling and psychotherapy, which means we use an integrative approach, employing a variety of techniques to respond to the needs and preferences of individual clients.

This three-year course (two years for the Diploma) is ideally suited to those with a part-time job, although it can also work for those with full-time commitments. The basis of study is one afternoon/evening per week.
