BSc (Hons)

Therapeutic Counselling (Top-Up)

Teaching & Learning

Continue your professional counselling development and work towards your top-up degree by learning how to establish and develop counselling in diverse settings and communities. You will explore a critical and reflective approach from the examination of theory and research evidence, analysis of clinical practice and looking at the 'self' in relation to others.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.
