NEW BSc (Hons) in Counselling


University Centre Weston is very pleased to announce that we are now offering a brand new 3-year Counselling degree programme.  

The BSc (Hons) in Counselling is a work-based professional training course focusing on person-centred pluralistic counselling practice within contemporary society. 

This programme offers students the opportunity to develop core skills needed to become a professional, registered counsellor by completing a supervised work-based placement. This will enable you to apply for registered membership with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) on completion of the required hours. 

Students studying this programme will have access to a wide range of personal development activities, including an annual residential, weekly personal development groups and other reflective tasks and assignments. These opportunities will encourage individuals to develop the self-awareness and reflectivity needed to become a counselling professional. 

We recognise that research is an important skill for the practising counsellor/psychotherapist. We have ensured that students will develop their knowledge and skills of how to understand, interpret and conduct research in this area. We also offer support for academic, personal and career development throughout the programme as well as having access to a professional network consisting of guest speakers and work-based learning opportunities. Working closely with professionals, employers and placement providers, will offer the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge needed for chosen career paths. 

Here at UCW, we pride ourselves on the quality support and engagement we are able to provide our students. In our smaller setting, learners have access to an array of quintessential perks, including 1-1 support, quality academic facilities and our fantastic HEART team.
