Music Therapy Courses
Courses are approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), who are the regulator of health and care professionals in the UK
Professional Music Therapy qualifications are at Postgraduate level in the UK. The courses listed below are those approved by the HCPC and recognised by the British Association for Music Therapy. Courses require a high level of musicianship; student with undergraduate degrees in subjects other than music (e.g. education or psychology) may be accepted if they have achieved a high standard of musical performance. Assessment of personality and suitability for the work also form part of an interview.
The theoretical perspectives studied at each course vary, and so prospective students are encouraged to look into the different training institutions to gain a better understanding of each course content.
