Course: Introduction to Counselling to BA (Hons) Counselling (Top-up)

Previous school: Sunderland College

Ashley said friends and family recommended New College Durham for the range of programmes we offered.

She said:

“I studied counselling from Level 1 to Level 5 at New College Durham and would definitely recommend the College. The College always had a calm atmosphere, the facilities were excellent, and my lecturers and tutors were incredibly helpful.

“The lessons were always very interesting, and my tutors were incredibly knowledgeable and patient. I gained a wealth of skills and felt honoured and privileged to compete two work placements. I was excited to start a professional career and I am so glad I chose to start it with New College Durham. After completing the top-up degree, I aim to gain a full-time role as a counsellor while I become an accredited counsellor.”
