A Warm Welcome to the College. Find out about our Acupuncture Courses.

You’ve probably landed here because you’re interested in studying acupuncture, or finding out more about how to train as an acupuncturist.  Maybe you’ve experienced the benefits of acupuncture treatment yourself and are now motivated to learn how you can help others to benefit from this powerful form of treatment.  Maybe you want to leave your old career behind and re-train in something new and different.  Maybe you’re already a healthcare professional looking to broaden the scope of your work or train in a therapy offering a holistic and patient-centred approach.

Whatever the reasons, you’ll find a warm welcome here at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine where we’re passionate about helping you to realise your potential and training you to be part of a hugely rewarding profession. 

Created in 1993, our College rapidly became one of the largest of its kind in the UK. Our reputation is founded on the quality and unique nature of our acupuncture course, which is validated as a BSc honours degree by Kingston University. This acupuncture training brings together the strengths of Five Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine theory in a style known as ‘integration’ – we’re the only college in the UK to offer this kind of training. 

To date we’ve trained over 800 acupuncturists. They chose to study with us because we offer:

  • First class teaching from top experts in the field
  • Flexible learning – weekend and weekday courses are available, making it possible for you to integrate studying with your other commitments
  • Excellent facilities 
  • A convenient and accessible location 
  • A warm, supportive environment in which to study

"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, graduated 2006
