"I wanted to become an acupuncturist as I prefer to use natural remedies which is in line with my faith and cultural background. I have witnessed the profound effects treatment can have on the patients.
CICM has an excellent reputation and I love the whole package here, especially the staff and supportive teachers."
Student finance and loans
Our current courses are recognised by student finance direct, so if you do not already have a university degree, you may be eligible for a student loan of £6,165 per year to help you pay for your course. You may also be eligible for a maintenance loan depending on your household income.
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 apply for the loan, our HEP code is ADOI, please select full time course and College of Integrated Chinese Medicine from the drop down menu.
You then need to select a SLC code depending on your cohort, please see below.
England SLC course code
April intake 850460
October intake 850461

If you have not studied for a degree before and you are a UK resident it is likely you will be eligible but you if you need to check please go to www.slc.co.uk
