Placements and internships

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


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