Graduates enjoy an excellent reputation in the professional field.

The Guidance, Counselling and Coaching programmes accept students from diverse backgrounds, with diverse life experiences and journeys leading to choosing to enter in helping professions. Our students can also progress from undergraduate programmes onto postgraduate training courses including MA Careers, MSc Counselling & Psychotherapy, MSc Coaching; MSc Coaching Psychology; or MSc Career Coaching.
