Welcome to the Northern College of Acupuncture. Established in 1988, we are a small and friendly independent teaching College, offering acupuncture degree courses
We are passionate about teaching you all the practical and academic skills you need to have a career that you can be passionate about - as a fully qualified acupuncture practitioner.
You may be a mature student looking for a new career in acupuncture, or coming to us straight from A-levels. You could already have some complementary healthcare training (such as reflexology or massage therapy) and be wanting to add to your skills. Or you could be working in orthodox healthcare (such as nursing or physiotherapy) and be looking for a more holistic approach to health. Or you may have a background in something completely different and be looking for a career change, like many of our students. Whatever your age or background all our students have the same goal in common – to have a meaningful and flexible career, healing people with acupuncture.
On our acupuncture courses you will find a dedicated and professional team of tutors, who are acupuncture practitioners willing to help you to grow and develop to become a competent and confident acupuncturist.
Here at the NCA we support and help you during your acupuncture training and beyond.
We hope you will join us on an exciting journey of discovery into traditional Chinese acupuncture.
