Learning for Life

Waverley Abbey College provides counselling programmes underpinned and integrated by a Christian world-view and anthropology. Our aim is to encourage ‘learning for life’, to see thousands of Christian learners walk through our doors and be transformed by God’s Word before going and living out their new learning in the workplace.

As the educational arm of CWR, we pride ourselves in delivering excellence in teaching, within a motivating environment, using quality resources. Over the last 30 years, CWR has pioneered and developed an expertise in counselling training to provide both BA and MA programmes based on the Waverley Integrative Framework. Our lecturers are counselling/psychotherapy practitioners engaged in current practice, enabling the latest theories and skills to be taught as well as offering excellent student experience.

What is it like to study at Waverley?

‘The teaching standard is excellent. The teaching formats are a nice balance of theory and practical, academic reading and discussion.’

Waverley Abbey College submitted an annual return to the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) in December 2016 that demonstrates that it is continuing to maintain academic standards and enhance the quality of student learning opportunities and information about learning opportunities.
