Beth Fairweather - Year 3 student
I transferred from another University to start my second year at the NCA. The transfer process was made as easy as possible by the College. The courses were compared and I was given extra sessions where I needed it to make up for gaps in my knowledge. I’m now in my third year and I’m loving it - I feel very nurtured and supported here.
If you are applying for the BSc in Acupuncture and are eligible for a student loan
Due to the government cap we only have a limited number of places for students who are eligible for a student loan. Places will be allocated as applications are received and processed and we advise you to apply to us as soon as possible.
If you are applying for the BSc in Acupuncture and are not eligible for a student loan
We are not subject to a government cap on student numbers for the BSc in Acupuncture course for students who are not eligible for a student loan. However the total numbers on our courses are still limited and early application is advisable.
The closing date for applications in 2019 is the 31st August. Late applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis, depending on availability.
If your application is successful, we will contact you to arrange an interview. Our interviews have been designed to enable us to explore in more detail your interest in studying here, and how the skills and experience you have will support you in successfully completing the course. Your interview will last around 45 minutes and you will be interviewed by two senior members of staff in a friendly and informal atmosphere and you will also have plenty of opportunity to ask questions. If you are successful we will offer you a place shortly after your interview.
