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 career development loan (CDL). 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. From 2017 postgraduate loans of £2,500 per year are available for MSc students.

“If I had not been able to access a student tuition fee loan I would not have been able to afford to do the course. I also work part time - which helps to pay my living costs.”
