The MA Applied Psychology (Guidance Counselling) is a professional training course for those who wish to work in a school or adult guidance setting. The flexible nature of this two-year part-time programme affords students the opportunity to combine work with their studies. Skills based modules focus on counselling skills, psychometric skills and guidance skills. Practice placements are also essential components of this programme. The growth area is in adult guidance, and you don't need a teaching qualification to work here. Also, a new area that is beginning to develop is with clients with disabilities. This qualification will equip you to work in either the public or private sector in this developing area.
