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).
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.
In 2021-22, if accepted on the Fast Track Foundation or First Year of a course, candidates pay a non-refundable deposit of £700 (unless The Minster Centre is unable to run the course, in which case we will return the whole of your deposit).
Half of the full deposit will be refunded if:
a) We receive notice in writing that the student cannot take up their place at least 28 days prior to the course start date and;
b) The Minster Centre is able to fill the student's space on the course.
The retained half is to cover administrative costs incurred.
Deposits are not transferrable.
Please note that if the student is accepted for entrance onto the Diploma course after successful completion of the Fast Track Foundation course, The Minster Centre will require an additional £700 deposit to secure entry onto the First Year of the Diploma course.
Students progressing between years after the first year pay a non-refundable deposit of £320 to secure their places in the following year.
All students become liable for the full year’s fees at the beginning of the academic year. This means that if you leave during the course of a year you will be required to pay the full year’s fees.
If the student defers before the course has started, they may be offered a place in the following year but they will need to pay a further deposit then. Please note that places are subject to availability on all our courses.
