University of East London evaluation:
This course is particularly suited to students interested in undergoing professional training that will equip them for employment as a clinician in the NHS, the voluntary sector or in private practice. Our typical applicant is someone who already has experience in working in the mental health sector and understands about working with people. We will encourage you to develop a flexible, reflective and critical approach to counselling theory, research and practice. The course involves a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, seminars and workshops. You will be required to be on placement throughout your training and to have successfully completed 450 hours of one-to-one supervised clinical practice by the end of the course. Training placements are crucial to your learning and the development of your clinical competence and confidence, so we aim to enhance your student experience by liaising regularly with your placement managers and supervisors.

About this university
Studying in London is always popular with international students so there are plenty who travel to the university. There is information on the website to start the process with application information as well as visas and immigration advice. Once in London the team will collect students from the airport and bring them to the campus them to their rooms. The Welcome Program is a popular series of events including social events and orientation programs. These cover everything from getting a bank account or registering with a doctor to finding the cheapest way to phone home and where to buy food. The student union offers representation, support and advice to all students at the university as well as organising activities, clubs and societies for outside the classroom. There are some fifty different clubs and societies available covering all aspects of life. These include sports, performing arts, interest groups as well as volunteering projects and those based around a specific culture or faith. Students can even apply to start their own societies when they and others share an interest not already covered by a group. Sports teams take part in the BUCS leagues against other colleges and universities and are managed by UEL Sports. It is one of the most improved universities in these leagues in recent years and has access to new sports facilities on the Docklands campus called Sportsdock, which was used by Team USA during the 2012 Olympics. It includes a gym and fitness suite, sports arenas, badminton courts, basketball courts, cricket bays, five a side football pitches and seating for 400 people.
