In addition to providing you with a broad understanding of the theory and application of general psychology, this course focuses on the research applications of counselling psychology.
You will be exposed to a wide range of applied and research topics, and gain a basic understanding of counselling psychology as practised in the NHS. The Health Professions Council, which regulates the profession of psychology in the UK, requires all practising psychologists to have.accredited postgraduate training, and so this BSc degree forms the first step towards becoming a practising psychologist. Whilst this degree alone does not directly confer eligibility to practise as a Counselling Psychologist, the University of Wolverhampton also offers an HPC- and BPS-accredited Practitioner Doctorate in Counselling Psychology for those who wish to make this their career. Please see our postgraduate courses for further information.
In the final level (your third year if you study full time), you will get to choose a number of optional, specialist modules. We run a slightly different range of specialist modules each year, depending on staff expertise. Please view a list of our staff, staff list. Other information about the department is here.
