There are two fee bands applied to these training courses, the standard fee and a discounted fee for Minster Centre members (graduates and those who maintain their UKCP membership through the Centre). Please note that Minster Centre discount does not apply to the Middlesex University registration fee (£761) that is a component of the MA/PG Dip fees.
Students who register for an MA or PG Dip pay an MA Registration fee for 1 or 2 years. The fee is set by Middlesex University and is handed over to Middlesex by the Minster Centre. These fees cannot be refunded. In 2020 the fee will be £761.
What is included in your fees
Course fees include contact training hours, coursework assessment, clinical supervision of work with training clients, one DBS check and client referrals (where relevant). Tuition fees do not include personal therapy, placement supervision, any additional costs associated with placements, the provision of consulting rooms for seeing training clients, or assessment of resubmitted coursework. The Minster Centre Enrolment Fee contributes to common room facilities and refreshments, access to the library and on-line resources, basic administration and insurance for the Minster Centre Psychotherapy and Counselling Service.
Personal therapy can cost from £50 per session upwards in London, sometimes less outside London. Depending on circumstances, you will need to continue in personal therapy and/or supervision during any time taken out of training. In addition, you will need to budget for the purchase of several key books a year (these are texts you will need to refer to frequently) and travel to the Centre, to placements and to therapy. Depending on the topics you choose for your written assessments you may need to buy books or internet access to articles, or access books, articles or other resources through the British Library or other specialist libraries. You will also need a secure means of audio recording client work, ideally this will be on a password protected and encrypted digital recorder, prices start at around £215.
Once you have an Agreement to Practice you will need to arrange private supervision for any private clients and you will need to take out professional indemnity insurance which costs £80-100 per year.
Course fees are subject to annual inflation. Once you have started a course we will endeavour to keep fee increases in subsequent years as low as possible. Increases may occur to reflect changes to the course, changes in the requirements of accrediting organisations, inflation, staff pay rises or other increases to the cost of providing the course.
Deposits and Payment Arrangements
In 2020, if accepted on the Fast Foundation Course or First Year of a course, students pay a deposit of £700 to secure their place once offered. This deposit is not refundable unless we are able to fill their place with
another applicant before the course starts.
Students progressing between years pay a non-refundable deposit of £315 to secure their places in the following year. Deposit levels are subject to change between years.

Students on the Fast Track Foundation course who leave the course and inform the Registrar in writing before the third weekend will lose their deposit but are not liable for any other fees. All other students become liable for the full year’s fees at the start of the course. This means that if you choose to leave during the course of a year you will be required to pay the full year’s fees.
