Program description

Advanced Practice in Psychological Wellbeing PGCert

Our PGCert Advanced Practice in Psychological Wellbeing course will introduce you to how clients with common mental health problems are engaged with and assessed in a clinical setting. We’ll give you the skills to add value and make a real difference to patients' lives using evidence-based talking therapies.

Our teaching has been designed to match the British Psychological Society’s (BPS) National Curriculum for the Education of Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners, and our clinical placements will give you hands-on experience, to put theory into practice. These are underpinned by the following core NHS values:

  • Commitment to quality of care
  • Compassion
  • Everyone counts
  • Improving people’s lives
  • Respect and dignity for all
  • Working together for patients.

On successful completion of this course, you’ll have the academic requirements needed to practice as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner with the BPS.

Admission requirements

While many PWPs are psychology graduates this is not a necessity. Applications are welcomed from people with experience working in mental health or similar services who may not have been in education recently. Services will also have individual person specifications you are required to meet.

English language requirements

IELTS: 6.5 overall including 6.0 in each category.

For more information about admission requirements, please visit the university website.
