Yes, The BSc is a QQI validated Level 8 four-year programme, recognised by IACP (Irish Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) as a professional award. Across all programmes, we hold at our core the importance of student support throughout the learning experience, and this is evident through the quality of the programmes, the expertise of our faculty and administrative teams, and the By-Your-Side student support programme we offer.
Learners must evidence all academic and clinical modules learning outcomes, 50 hours of personal therapy and complete a clinical placement reflecting 120-hours with adult clients in a suitable service. Personal therapists and individual supervisors must hold full accreditation status with IACP, IAHIP or BACP. There is no leeway on this requirement. The college provides support in securing a suitable placement and we know of services suitable across the country.
