2. What are the entry requirements?
Our courses in acupuncture are accessible for all and we encourage a diversity of ages and backgrounds. You will need to be over 18 and you will either have gained the standard entry requirements (if you are coming to us straight from A levels or equivalent) or you will be able to give us satisfactory evidence of your life and work experience (if you are coming in as a mature student). Our students come to study acupuncture with us from a variety of backgrounds and a variety of qualifications. Some of our students already have a degree, but many don’t. Some have a practitioner training in another field, others have a completely different background. Some students come to us as a first career, others are changing career or coming back to study after a long break.
Michael Ranft :
"I came to my studies after a career as a secondary school English teacher, having decided that I wanted a new challenge and a better work-life balance. Not having a background in either science-based subjects or complementary medicine has not been an obstacle at all as the teaching, resources and support are of such high quality that I feel like I have made huge strides in a very short space of time."
