Students enrolling for the Certificate, the Diploma or the BA Degree must demonstrate the ability to undertake an undergraduate programme of this nature successfully. This will normally mean two A levels plus three different GCSE passes at grade C or above (one GCSE must be English), or equivalent alternatives for students under 21.
Mature students (aged 21 and over) without these qualifications will be considered individually through an interview with the Counselling Team. If you do not meet the above entry requirements, please contact the Engagement Team who will help you to identify a suitable programme of study.
Outside of usual Middlesex university requirements, applicants will need to consider if they have sufficient maturity through life experience and aptitude before taking on the study of professional counselling or pastoral care. All persons must also demonstrate the capacity to work with people from diverse age, faith and cultural backgrounds.
Please note that applicants exempt from visa requirements will need to pay a £250 deposit to secure a place on their course. For those who do need a visa, applicants will be required to pay £3,500 not studying on campus, or £5,000 for those studying on campus.
