Our degree programme provides a magnificent gateway to a rewarding career. We offer both a foundation degree and a BSc honours in addictions counselling, and many of our graduates become accredited practitioners, certified by FDAP (Federation of Drug and Alcohol Practitioners).

The degree programmes are studied on a full time basis, combining blocks of taught and work-based learning.  

Applications for the degree programme must be submitted via UCAS. The closing date for applications is 30 June prior to enrollment in September.

Applicants who have met the entry requirements for the degree programme are required to attend a two-day selection process which takes place in April and May each year. The selection process includes a number of 1:1 and group exercises and a homework assignment. The University of Bath will notify applicants of the outcome of the selection process.

We welcome applications from those who have been in stable recovery from addiction for a minimum of two years.  As the course involves work with vulnerable adults, all successful applicants will be required to undergo a criminal records check by the Disclosure and Barring Service.  The offer of a work-based placement, without which you cannot complete the work based element of the degree programme, is conditional on the receipt of a satisfactory disclosure certificate and appropriate risk assessment.
