Course fees for BSc in Acupuncture commencing in 2019


We know that studying involves a big commitment of time, energy and money, so we try to keep our fees as low as we can. As a not-for-profit organisation, we spend every spare penny on continually developing and improving the training we offer. Our priorities are to offer you a first-class experience and deliver value for money. Your fees include all the teaching and learning opportunities provided by our teaching staff, all your clinical experience in our teaching clinic, tutorials, library and online resources, support services, access to our online e-learning facility, and your registration fees with our partner University.

Student Loans

Students who are eligible and who are studying on a course designated by the government can access a full time student tuition fee loan (currently £6,165 per year) and maintenance loan. Designation is renewed annually. We have applied for designation for both our weekday and weekend BSc in Acupuncture courses from the Department of Education and are waiting for a decision. Until the decision is received we are unable to confirm the availability of student support. Eligible students are those who do not already have a University degree, and haven’t already had a loan or grant. You have to pay back all student loans. They are repaid at a low rate of interest and do not have to be paid back until your income has reached £21,000 a year, at which point you pay back 9% of your income over £21,000. Please note that student finance will not pay the £100 enrolment fee.
