Master of Counselling
ONE YEAR (FULL-TIME ) or 2 YEARS (PART-TIME)
The Master of Counselling is an award accredited by the University of Divinity, delivered through a partnership with Stirling Theological College. The backbone of the program is a full year of Supervised Practicum and Advanced Counselling Strategies.
