"...a friend insisted I went along to an Open Day at CICM, and I am so glad I did!

The college suited me perfectly; I felt supported at every stage of my journey and left with a solid foundation to practice. Most importantly, as a graduate, I still feel that I can contact the college with any niggling worries I might have on any areas of my practice.

CICM is like a big family; when you leave home you always feel welcome to come back."

Sally Hammerson, CICM graduate 


About the college

Created in 1993, our Acupuncture college grew rapidly to become one of the largest providers of acupuncture training in the UK. More than twenty years on, our acupuncture courses have degree status and are validated by Kingston University. One of the keys to the strong reputation of our college is the popularity of integration with UK acupuncturists whose recommendations provide us with the majority of our students.

Another reason for our success is the quality of our teaching staff and our commitment to staff development. Ever mindful of ways to improve teaching and learning processes, we have an ongoing teacher development programme and all teachers are engaged in regular clinical practice and are experienced acupuncturists.

We occupy two beautiful adjoining grade 2 listed Georgian buildings providing a flexible, spacious and attractive environment for learning, making attendance at this acupuncture college a pleasure. Excellent transport connections make travel from many areas easy.

Above all, our students speak of the enjoyable and satisfying time they have studying at the Acupuncture college. As graduates, many of them keep in touch by returning to take advantage of our programme of continuing professional development. They are inspired and prepared to become excellent practitioners of acupuncture who help many patients to enjoy better health. See details of our CPD programme.
