Offset module credits towards Counselling Studies and Skills (Not a Licence to Practice) University Diploma

If you do not have a degree qualification, once you’ve completed this module, you have the option to offset the 20 credits through recognised prior learning (RPL) towards our online Counselling Studies and Skills (Not a Licence to Practice) University Diploma. This would reduce the number of modules you would need to study and the total cost of the course.
