'I have been fortunate to have full time work as a self employed therapist since graduating. Whilst at university, I offered my services as a volunteer therapist at a local Drug and Alcohol centre, here I was able to put into practice the skills learnt on the course and I had access to a number of clients for my case studies.
For my work placement I chose to work with children with Cerebral Palsy. Here I gained a whole new range of skills and worked as part of the multidisciplinary team. I have been lucky enough to continue my work in both of these areas and I am now paid. No two days are the same. I love my work and have not looked back since graduating.'

'The BSc Complementary Therapies course is fantastic. The tutors are all very passionate about their subject, and all strive to make learning as enjoyable as possible. I couldn't ask for a better course.'
- Daniel Rowberry, Year 2 student
'I have just completed a research report for the university and am currently building my own practice on a part time basis.'
- Rhian Atkins, BSc(Hons) Research Assistant
'The course is hard work but highly rewarding as you gain certified diploma qualifications as the years progress. Although the workload is fairly intensive the course is really enjoyable and lots of fun as every week is different and there is so much to learn.'
- Caroline Pearson, Final year student
'The additional modules in business research, pathology, health disorders and contemporary issues meant I finished the degree confident in both working with most presenting health conditions and I was also confident in opening and running the ACT clinic, working alongside and understanding other therapists and their therapies.'
- Leilah Porter, BSc (Hons). Clinic Manager, ACT Clinic, Cardiff
'The programme takes into consideration the educational requirements of the associated professional bodies and far exceeds these in all subject areas… I was also impressed with the work produced by students for the dissertation module, particularly as this requires students to undertake a small research project.'
