We enjoy a rich tradition of providing training in counselling and counselling skills. Our teaching staff are highly respected leaders in their field, and you’ll be joining a vibrant community of practitioners and past and current students.

Abertay has a strong research orientation, and the Tayside Centre for Counselling (TCC) is based on campus. There are opportunities for you to be involved in projects that are influencing and developing the role and effectiveness of counselling interventions in modern society.

Career Opportunities 

By providing both foundational and professional training in a single programme, this Counselling programme from Abertay University  gives you the opportunity to undergo a three year part-time degree as a direct entry in to a counselling career. 

Our graduates have moved on to work within the field of counselling, psychotherapy, social care, research and education. Some graduates choose to enter private practice, while others remain in the voluntary sector. In addition, it's possible to go on to train in counselling supervision.
