Study type Taught


The Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor is the largest and oldest mindfulness teacher training organisation in the UK, and have been training people to teach mindfulness-based courses for the last 15 years. We were the first programme in the world to offer a Masters in mindfulness-based approaches and strive to be the best. Our students often comment about our supportive and experiential learning environment, and develop a close and supportive community of learning as they progress through the course.

The staff at CMRP are active researchers in the field of mindfulness. A recent example is a seminal paper called "What defines mindfulness-based programmes? The Warp and the Weft."

Gain a Masters degree in Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses - This Masters will provide full training to be a mindfulness teacher, and you gain a Masters level qualification plus the Certificate of Competence in Mindfulness teacher training – this represents the highest level of teacher training in the UK and is a highly sought after certificate.

  • This route takes between four to five years to complete, it is up to you at what rate you progress through the Masters.

  • There are four compulsory modules (Foundation, Teaching 1, Teaching 2, and Mindfulness Teacher Project).
