Why choose this course?
There is a high demand for professional counsellors following moves to professionalise the field in the UK coupled with the enshrining of counselling in schools by Welsh Government legislation and education policy. Wrexham Glyndŵr University has developed this innovative top-up degree for qualified counsellors in response.
If you are a counsellor or psychotherapist qualified to Diploma level, and you would like to develop your practice with a specialism in working with Children and Young People this could be the course for you.
It is also possible to take core modules COU610 and COU612 as standalone CPD (subject to student numbers).
Students are required to be in employment (voluntary or paid) where they are working with a client group appropriate to their chosen route (Children and Young People or Adult route). This will be a requirement to successfully completing all the modules leading to the award of either BSc (Hons) in Counselling (Children and Young People) or the BSc (Hons) Counselling (Adults).
