"The flexibility of the course helps me to keep a handle on my busy life and I study and work at the same time. I like this mix as the study is the fun element of my life and the work helps me to afford the course on top of my student loan!"
5. How do people fund the acupuncture courses and what are the costs?
Our students fund their acupuncture course in many different ways depending upon their circumstances. Eligible students on our BSc in Acupuncture can apply for student loans (tuition fee loan and maintenance loan) to help fund the course. Our BSc in Acupuncture is classed as a full time course at a private College and as such eligible students are entitled to £6,165 per year towards their tuition fees. Students who have already had funding from the government towards a higher education course find other ways to self-fund including continuing to work, adding to their mortgage, using savings, or taking out a professional and career development loan (PCDL). Course fees are spread out and paid in nine instalments over the academic year and the majority of our students continue to work part-time whist they study.
