Marketing Manager Denise Magson explains the various options for study and attendance.

1. How long will it take me to train as an acupuncturist?

It takes three years of training on our acupuncture courses to qualify with a BSc in Acupuncture, apply to register with the professional body, the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), and start work as a fully qualified acupuncturist.  Students studying on our MSc in Acupuncture also train and qualify as an acupuncturist in three years and then take a further one year to complete their MSc dissertation. It is also possible to take the BSc course part time over up to six years.
