Counselling Theory Top Up at University Centre Grimsby - UCAS

Course options

Course summary

This programme will be highly attractive to practicing counsellors who may hold a practising Foundation Degree in counselling who are looking to develop their professional competence and advance their careers with a full degree. These students would not be expected to achieve any further hours on placement as they will have already achieved the 100 hours required by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Neither would they be required to participate in ten personal therapy hours. The programme would also enable those students not wishing to enter placement and become a counsellor to achieve a good degree. At present there are no provisions for students to attend a programme where they can choose to opt out of the placement module and attend theoretical modules in place of the practicing element.


Dissertation; Personal Development & Culture; Addiction; Psychology within Counselling; Leadership

Assessment method

Throughout the teaching on this programme emphasis will be made upon theoretical underpinnings of counselling. Assessments such as case studies, reports and a dissertation will demonstrate the ability to critically analyse contemporary counselling research. The dual diagnosis assessment will develop a critical evaluation of the diverse and complex nature of this topic. Alongside the theoretical underpinning, the personal development assessment will further enhance a critical awareness of self in relation to culture and diversity.
