Placements and internships

We organise both placements and internships for current students and recent graduates.

Placements

Every year, we offer a limited number of high-quality and sought-after student counselling placements through the Student Counselling, Health & Wellbeing services.

Our counselling work experience placements are designed to give you an opportunity to undertake unpaid work with the University, and are managed in accordance with the BACP Universities & Colleges.

Our placements offer:

  • experience of a modern working environment as part of a professional and highly-regarded counselling service
  • an opportunity to work with a selection of appropriate clients
  • fortnightly in-house supervision with an accredited counsellor
  • a commitment to support your development as a skilled counsellor, including invitations to continuing professional development (CPD) events
