We offer professional and academic qualifications, ranging from introductory to masters level.

Our mission is to provide a wide range of courses all of which combine academic rigour with high standards for clinical practice. We are committed to high quality training in terms of professional and ethical standards, research and innovation; and to providing opportunities for learning that will enable both our students and our graduates to further their personal growth, professional development and healthy engagement with society, allowing them to play a significant role in enhancing the lives of their clients.
Our MSc graduates are eligible for UKCP registration. Graduates of the BSc (Hons) course are eligible to apply for BACP accreditation upon completion of their clinical component.
