PGDip Psychological Therapies Practice (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapies and Approaches)

Programme structure

The PGDip programme  is delivered over a series of blocks. For more detailed information please view our block timetable below. You will need to be able to commit to attending all of these at the University or other venues as detailed.  There is also an additional requirement to commit to personal study and practice.

During Module PSYM57  students will be undertaking supervised work in an external setting and their own work place. The programme team will facilitate this, but you may need to travel to a different location to work for one day a week.  There will still be some attendance at the University as detailed in the timetable.
