Suitable Diploma course students may be able to transfer to the Research M.A. programme at the end of the third year of their training. Suitability is based on the standard of their essays, case presentation in supervision, therapeutic skills, personal maturity and attendance of the Diploma training.
M.A. track students must submit two case histories in the fourth year of the Diploma and a 1100 word example of a Transpersonal intervention in therapy. In addition students must attend a module on research methodology, complete a research proposal and a critical review in the fourth year of their training.
The M.A. research dissertation is then carried out in the fifth year, the date for completion of the written submission being in the autumn of the fifth year. Transfer students will also be awarded the Diploma on successful completion of the M.A. Please note that M.A. track students can only apply for UKCP registration after completion of the M.A.
