Course detail

By enrolling on this course, you will also be invited to a conference-style residential visit subsidised by UCW to develop your practice outside of the classroom and present your work to peers and professionals.

You will also need to complete supervised placement hours and there may be additional costs for this external supervision.

You will also need to be in one-to-one counselling yourself for a minimum of 20 hours over the duration of study.

Whether you choose to study this course on a part-time or full-basis, you will also be expected to attend lectures in the daytime and in the evening, and also undertake a minimum of 100 hours of work experience in a relevant and supervised setting. We can provide a list of NHS and private practices to help you in securing a placement in an area of academic interest.

When in lectures and seminars, you will be taught in our Knightstone Campus in the centre of Weston. You will also be able to take advantage of the teaching and learning spaces a few minutes away in the new University Centre in the Winter Gardens. The new facilities include bright and spacious teaching and learning spaces, technology-enabled ‘pods’ for group study and a library.

A great way to decide if this is the right course for you is to come along to our next Open Day, where you can see our facilities and also meet the team. Please also feel free to get in touch with UCW’s HEART student services team or the course leader Barbara Feldtkeller if you have any questions.
