Student Loans

For students to be eligible for funding from Student Finance England, they must be studying on an eligible course at a provider registered with the Office for Students (OfS). The OfS is the new independent regulator for higher education in England and all higher education providers need to register with the OfS for their students to be eligible for student support in the 2019-20 academic year. We have made an application to register and expect a decision by January 2019. No provider will be able to confirm whether student support is available until it has a decision from the OfS.

Additional costs

As well as the course fees you will also have additional financial commitments during the training:

  • Personal counselling: Students are required to have 35 hours counselling each year of training in order to gain the BSc (Hons). Some hours gained shortly prior to the start of the course may be counted; this will be discussed at the interview. Counsellors’ fees vary. You will normally pay between £30 - £45 per session although some counsellors may offer a lower figure for students in training. You can expect to pay between £1000 - £1500 for personal counselling per year
  • Supervision: When in counselling practice students need supervision fortnightly at the start of clinical practice. A ratio of one supervision hour to six client hours is required until registration with UKCP as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. You can expect to pay approx. £1000 per year for supervision if it is not provided by your placement
  • Belonging to a professional organisation is necessary and costs approximately £70 per year. You may also need to provide your own professional indemnity insurance if the placement does not provide cover this is at a cost of approx £50 per year
  • If you need to take a consolidation year to complete your training there is a fee (£500 for 2019/20)
  • If you are exiting with a Diploma there will be a fee of £250.00 to complete the Diploma viva.
  • On completion of your BSc case study there will be a fee of £250.00 to complete the BSc viva.
  • There is a charge for parking in local car parks (on Saturdays) in both venues​

Please note that while we make every effort to keep the fees the same each year there may be an increase from year to year.
