There are strong teaching and placement links with the clinical and counselling psychology courses in South Wales and the South West of England.
The post will be based in the City of Swansea affording access to the opportunities that city life offers as well as to areas of outstanding beauty in the Gower, and Brecon Beacons thereby allowing for a wide variety of extra-curricular activities to suit most tastes.
