Edinburgh University has announced it will offer a free online counselling conversion class to students aged 18 and above.
The course will run from September 28 to October 1.
It will be offered for free to any student who has attended the sex-prevention program, which aims to reduce sexual violence and increase awareness of the importance of talking about sex.
“We’re delighted to offer this course to our students and we hope this will be a catalyst for students to consider how they can improve their lives, especially in relation to their sexual wellbeing,” the university said in a statement.
The university is offering counselling conversion courses as part of its sex education program, a service that aims to give students access to information about sex and relationship skills.
“Sex education is an important part of our education program.
We want to empower students and support them to develop skills for better sexual health,” the statement added.
Students who have attended the Sex Counselling Course will be able to take part in a 20-minute class on the first Saturday of each month at 10am.
“This is an exciting opportunity for students who are interested in working with a counsellor to improve their sexual health and wellbeing, and to engage with a trained counsellors about how to improve sex and relationships skills,” the school said.
The counselling course will be free to students who have already attended the course and enrolled in it.
“Students who want to participate in the course will receive a certificate from the course facilitator and the course’s website, with further course details to be confirmed,” the Edinburgh University statement said.
Students can also enrol in a free group sex-change course, the Edinburgh Times reported.
