"The moment I walked in I knew this was the place I wanted to study. The light, the space, the facilities, the atmosphere, feeling warm, being greeted ...really nice"

Kate Thick, cicm graduate



Welcome to the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine – we’re delighted you’ve chosen to find out more about the hugely rewarding and growing profession of Acupuncture.

At CICM we teach an integrated style of Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine theory to enable our graduates to confidently and effectively treat a wide range of illnesses affecting the body, mind and spirit from the moment they enter the clinic.

  • Gain your BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture to embark on a rewarding career with meaning and purpose, making a difference to the health and wellness of your clients
  • Enjoy an interactive, practical and comprehensive course, fully accredited by the BAAB (British Acupuncture Accreditation Board) with over 450 hrs of clinical experience
  • Take advantage of our flexible study and finance plans to fit around your busy work and family life
  • Become part of a vibrant, supportive and warm student community with like-minded and passionate peers and teachers

We believe that our student-centred approach and our commitment to teaching excellence is what creates such high student satisfaction rates and means that 98% of our graduates remain in fulfilling practices one year on. We’re really proud that our strong reputation has allowed us to welcome students from all over the UK and Europe, often through recommendation and referral from fellow acupuncturists.

We know that our student’s lives are often full with work and family, so we offer flexible 3-year full time courses either over weekends or on weekdays which lead to a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture validated by Kingston University. We also have financing plans and eligible students can apply for student and maintenance loans.

All our tutors are experienced acupuncturists and passionate teachers, committed to helping you realise your potential and training you to be part of a hugely rewarding and growing profession.
