"Having experienced amazing results from acupuncture, and after research into the nature of the training I wanted to study at the college, because of its reputation, and as a result of recommendations.
Looking back, my only regret is not starting the course earlier - I really cannot sing the praises of the college highly enough.
The college is a fantastic place to study and is clearly focused on the needs of students and patients – I still really look forward to returning for CPD.
The course is extremely well structured and the practical nature of the course mean that from the outset you have a vision of what it will be like to be a practitioner.
I made friends for life amongst my class-mates – we were a really diverse group in all respects except for our drive to become acupuncturists and support each other - this has remained after we have graduated and continue to develop our knowledge in this fascinating subject."

Open day agenda
At the open day Angela Hicks, joint principal, explains how the college was established and what it’s like to study for your acupuncture degree and what sets us apart from other colleges.
John Hicks, joint principal, talks about what it’s like to be an acupuncturist and why we are so passionate about integrating five element acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
Peter Mole, dean, explains about the support and supervision we offer while you’re studying with us, how you are assessed and why research is important. He also talks about how we help you prepare for setting up your own business, making a living from acupuncture and being part of the wider acupuncture profession.
There is also plenty of time to have a tour of our buildings and get your questions answered. It’s also your chance to try out some practical skills as we introduce you to what the pulse and tongue can tell you about someone’s health. There is also time for a tea break and an opportunity to talk about finance, meet current students and ask any other questions you may have.
The purpose of the open day is for you to know if this is the right college for you and we will do all we can to give you a honest and realistic idea of what we are offering.
