This course has been developed and is taught by practising professionals and industry experts. Our academics bring a wealth of expertise to the classroom with many continuing to undertake research and other projects alongside teaching, meaning our students gain a well-rounded and relevant teaching experience.
Throughout your studies, you will find that the course is underpinned with practical elements. Each year students have the opportunity to go on field trips to places of interest such as Freud’s Museum in London and mental health museums which are heavily subsidised or free for students.
At CU Coventry, we put a strong focus on getting our graduates ready to enter the job market. This can be done in a variety of ways—one key element is work placements. With this degree, you are given the opportunity to undertake short and long-term placements. This is particularly essential for this course as to become a fully qualified counsellor, students will need to present evidence to 100 hours of practical experience. This, along with your degree means upon graduation, you could register as a qualified counsellor without the need for further study.
