The course is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and our MA is one of a few accredited MA courses in a university setting in the country.

There are a variety of learning methods, including interactive seminars, small and large group interaction, residential weekends, triad groups, experiential exercises, and student presentations.

The course follows a modular structure and is delivered over three years on a part-time basis for one full day a week.
