Psychology with Counselling - Nottingham Trent University

This exciting new course provides the opportunity to study the fascinating world of psychology in combination with counselling. The course is ideal for those who want to acquire a breadth of experience and knowledge in psychology, whilst following a specialised and distinctive programme in the ever-evolving field of counselling. The course is designed to give you a thorough grounding in the foundational knowledge, skills and understanding of core areas of Psychology and Counselling throughout all years of your studies. During your final year, you’ll also able to select specialist modules linked to the areas of staff research expertise within Psychology. This course caters for both students who wish to become professional psychologists and those who wish to pursue a career in counselling or related professions. Further training is required for both, and this is not a Counsellor practitioner programme. You should consider whether you feel ready to start a counselling related course and are encouraged to discuss this with the staff on the course if unsure. This course places emphasis on preparing you for your future career. In Year Two you’ll have the opportunity to undertake work experience through the Personal and Professional Development module, enabling you to appreciate the importance of employment related experience and skills. You also have the option of choosing to complete a four-year course which includes a year-long work placement. You must apply with the UCAS code C809 to be considered for the four-year sandwich / placement course. If you are on the three-year full-time course, you may also have the chance to study abroad as part of the course at one of our partner universities. Please note this course is currently undergoing accreditation by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
