I live near wigan, and the only two art therapy courses are in Chester and Preston, which is quite a way for me... I’m gutted because this is what I really want to study! I have a young daughter and I’m not currently driving, I do plan on learning after Christmas.
Any help is appreciated. If anyone has done an art therapy masters, what’s the weekly time table like?
Thanks in advance
Does anyone know of any accredited distance learning art therapy courses? Watch

I'm currently a second year student here at UCLan, I'm also from Wigan.
Have you thought about short courses at all? We offer some such as 'Expressive Arts Therapy' (http://www.uclan.ac.uk/courses/creat...-therapies.php) and 'Art Therapy: An Introduction' (http://www.uclan.ac.uk/courses/intro...rt_therapy.php) which could be beneficial to you.
Alternatively, there is an Arts - Health MA which you could study either full time or part time all dependant on your circumstances really, in terms of timetabling I'm not too sure however you could give the UCLan <i> a call at 01772 895000to see if they'd be able to clear anything up for you?
Have you thought about the option of commuting in via train at all? When I go home to visit, I tend to catch the train back to university to get to classes on a Monday morning which from Wigan North Western isn't too bad of a commute?
I hope this helps,
