The City College of Acupuncture course is fully accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB). BAAB accreditation guarantees excellence in training, safe practice and professional conduct.
The BAAB assesses course documentation, has discussions with the course team and students, checks the appropriateness of students’ assessed work, scrutinises the External Examiner’s reports, and observes teaching in the classroom, the clinic and online. It ensures that accredited courses are taught at degree level, and embody the critical awareness and academic rigour equivalent to other professional healthcare programmes at this level.
BAAB accredited courses offer a thorough grounding in Chinese medicine theory along with anatomy, physiology, and appropriate Western medical sciences in order to promote an integrated understanding of both traditional Eastern and modern Western approaches to healthcare.
Graduates of BAAB accredited courses are eligible to join the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), the UK’s main registering body for Traditional Acupuncturists.
We are currently seeking accreditation with UK Register of Tui Na Chinese Massage (UKRTCM) as well as other bodies. We will keep our students and website up to date with our status as it changes.
