Professional Masters Programme
MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice
Bath Spa University logo

The MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice has been set up at Bath Spa University (BSU) and is designed to enhance the professional development of counsellors and psychotherapists. It gives an academic qualification alongside the vocational counselling training which may be helpful when formal registration is established in the UK. The award is modular, based on accumulating credit points (180 are needed for a Masters), and gives a flexible career track suited to meet the demands of professional people needing to study part-time.

Graduates from The Manor House Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Therapy in the Community qualify for accreditation of prior learning (APL), worth 90 credits provided they gained their qualification within 6 years of applying for APL. This means that your professional qualification will be considered as contributing to the credits needed for your MA award. Diploma students are granted direct entry onto the MA programme.

All Manor House Diploma graduates accepted on the MA are required to complete two half modules, worth 15 credit points, on Research Methods and Research Project (Dissertation) Preparation (named PR7103 and PR7102). The two half modules can be completed flexibly via supported flexible learning programmes and lead to the Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Project Dissertation (PR7120). This final stage dissertation is a substantial piece of research based on your counselling and psychotherapy practice that is usually completed over a year, and amounts to 60 credit points. Considerable help and support is given in the form of 12 hours of personal tutorial supervision over the course of the dissertation work and completion phase. There are also a series of professional research support seminars held for students across each year. Your research topic will be discussed and approved by both the academic supervisor and programme leader.
