Accredited Course Directory  

If you are thinking about training to be a therapist, visit our Student Pages  BACP Student Pages  You can also contact us for more information

You can use this page to check if a course is accredited or if it was ever accredited by BACP in the past. Current courses show the start date for the accreditation (in brackets.). For courses with previous accredited status, please go to the end of the list. These courses show both the start date and end date for the accredited  status (in brackets).

This list is useful to

  • prospective students wanting to take a BACP accredited training course

  • applicants for BACP Membership, Register and Accreditation (to check if their training is/was BACP accredited)

  • employers, clients and other people wanting to check the BACP status of a qualification

Current courses show the duration of the training and the type of delivery like this: '2FT' and this '4PT'. The figure is the overall duration in years and the abbreviation indicates full or part time delivery. Please note that the course duration given is for the accredited training only. Some accredited courses may require you to have completed some previous training and/or have experience of working in a counselling setting before you can apply to enrol upon that course. For example, it may be necessary to complete a certificate level training in counselling with the course provider before you can progress onto the accredited diploma level training (please enquire with the training provider direct).

Students who leave a BACP accredited course before the end of that accredited course or programme will not be able to claim completion of a BACP accredited course (e.g. a student exiting an accredited BA (Hons) at an interim diploma exit point cannot claim a BACP accredited course).

Trainees on a BACP accredited course are eligible to join BACP as a Student Member. Graduates of a BACP accredited course are eligible to join BACP as a Registered Member MBACP. Graduates may either transfer their Student Membership to the Individual Member (IM) category or apply to join BACP as an IM if they are not already in membership. In both cases, BACP will need to approve the accredited course certificate as supporting evidence. Once in the IM category, graduates will be invited to sign the terms and conditions for joining the BACP Register. When they have signed, they will become a Registered Member MBACP. Join the Register
