NEW FOR 2015Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Studies (Supervision)


The University of Leicester has a long tradition of providing counselling and psychotherapy training courses, producing competent practitioners that are highly regarded.

We understand the needs of mature part-time students, and organise our courses and support services to meet those needs as far as possible. The most important thing is to find a course that suits you and your career aspirations.

We are proud to announce that the Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning has received a 97% overall satisfaction score in the recent National Student Survey (NSS). The NSS is an independent survey asking students to rate the quality of their Higher Education experience, and is widely recognised as a key measure of student satisfaction.
