Course fees

We are a not for profit organisation and our priority is to ensure you receive first class training.

Our current courses are recognised by student finance direct, so if you do not already have a university degree, you are likely to be eligible for a student loan of £6,165 per year to help you pay for your course. 

To help them identify our course our HEP code is ADOI and please select full time course and College of Integrated Chinese Medicine from the drop down menu subject category

(HECoS) is 100233 Acupuncture CAH02- subjects allied to medicine.

Student loans are repaid at a very low rate of interest and do not have to be paid back until your income has reached £25,000 a year at which point you pay back 9% of your income over £25,000. 

If you would like clarification about eligibility please contact student finance direct

Whilst fees are fixed for years 1 and 2, the college reserves the right to raise year 3 fees in line with the Retail Price Index.  

Payments can be made in two ways:

  • Payment in full, before the first day of the course, in which case you receive a 1.5% discount 
  • By monthly standing order payments
