BSc (Hons), Full-time Including Foundation Year
, Duration: 4 Years
**Summary**: This degree includes an integrated foundation year if you do not have the appropriate subjects and/or grades for entry to year one of the degree. Counselling psychology applies psychological theory and research to therapeutic practice with clients. It is particularly useful in helping clients to combat depression, anxiety, phobias and relationship difficulties.
**Course details**: As a psychology and counselling student, you cover all of the core modules included in the BSc (Hons) Psychology programme, in addition to specific modules relevant to counselling psychology. You learn the principles of the counselling process and consider how it applies to groups and individuals in a range of settings. Like the BSc (Hons) Psychology degree, the analytical and communication skills you develop on the course are prized by employers in a wide range of careers. It is a great first step towards further training to become a registered counselling psychologist.
**After the course**: As with all our psychology degrees, upon graduation you can proceed to further study in any area of psychology. You can also utilise your enhanced critical thinking, research aptitude and analytical skill in a range of graduate-level careers. However, the skills and abilities developed in this course are particularly suited to the postgraduate training in counselling psychology you will need in order to become a chartered counselling psychologist.
All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree course. Our staff utilise their extensive connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits.
