Retrain in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy: Why the University of Bolton?

The problem-focused and action-oriented methods used by cognitive behaviour therapists are some of the most successful for tackling mental health issues today. That’s why our MSc Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapies course is such a popular choice for psychology graduates looking to make a difference.

We’re one of the top universities in the country with excellent facilities for psychology students. If you’re interested in retraining in the field of cognitive behaviour, here are just some of the reasons to choose the University of Bolton.

1. Study under accredited therapists

Our tutors and course leaders are all highly experienced, accredited practitioners in their own right. They bring industry experience to the course, giving students invaluable insight into real workplace settings and how to apply theory into practice.

2. Enjoy a flexible programme

Designed to be entirely modular and flexible, our course allows students to tailor the programme to their needs. Plus, if you need to take a break from study due to work or personal circumstances, we can extend your period of study by agreement.

3. Gain real experience in the workplace

During your cognitive behaviour therapy training, you will take on 200 hours of work experience. This means you will be on supervised clinical practice placements, where you will interact directly with clients.

4. Get the necessary accreditation

Our MSc Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapies course is Level 2 Accredited by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). On completion of the course, you’ll have met all of the training requirements for practitioner accreditation.

5. Join an established network of psychology students

The University of Bolton is one of the top universities in the country, and enrolling with us means being part of a great Postgraduate community.
