What our students say

The LPC at UWL is exceptional. The tutors are extremely friendly and approachable and they are always keen to help. Marcia Woodward

The course is very well structured with lots of interesting and interactive workshops. The tutors have been supportive and positive throughout, as well as knowledgeable and helpful in preparing us for practice. The LPC room in the library is very useful, particularly because it is for the use of LPC students only. Personal tutoring was beneficial and provided me with support when needed. Emma Pluszczyk
