If you are interested in studying with us we warmly invite you to join us for one of the introductory events, informal visits or online skype “Q&A” sessions, that we run throughout the year. Browsing our website and reading our prospectuses will give you a flavour of what it is like to study with us, but nothing beats seeing for yourself. Come and meet or Skype with us and find out more about our courses and our special College.

BSc and MSc in Acupuncture

Full day introductory events

Our full day introductory events are friendly and informal, a reflection of how we teach and the ethos of our College. During the day you will look around the College, meet key members of our team and find out about the courses from our Course Director Lara McClure. You will also see a demonstration of acupuncture, take part in a "question and answer session" with our current students and hear from our graduates who are already in practice. Lunch is provided and this is a further opportunity for everyone to mingle and get to know one another.



Informal visits

If you cannot make the full day events we also have regular informal visits to the College lasting a couple of hours. During your time with us you will look around the College, meet some of the key members of our team and have your questions answered. You may also spend some time in our teaching clinic with our supervisors and students - experiencing for yourself how our students put theory into practice with real patients in our busy teaching clinic.

One to ones

If the dates we offer are not convenient for you, we can arrange a short "one to one" visit at a mutually convenient time (Monday to Friday).
