Certificate in Counselling Skills Scholarship

This scholarship is available to home (UK) students with an offer of an unconditional place on the Certificate in Counselling Skills course. 

About the scholarship

One of the strengths of the Certificate in Counselling Skills programme is the diverse backgrounds of our students. We value and welcome applications to the course from individuals who have navigated 'non-traditional pathways', who have extensive related work experience and valuable life experience to offer and use on the course.

We want particularly to encourage applications to the programme from students from groups that are underrepresented within the counselling professions and recognise that self-funding may be a challenge for potential students from these groups.
