New course starting in January 2018

The City College of Acupuncture will now have two intakes per year. You can access our course on either a weekday or weekend.

Our three-year acupuncture courses run across two days in college each week with additional home study.

• Our acupuncture course starting in January 2018 will run on Saturdays and Sundays
• Our acupuncture course starting in September 2018 will run on Thursdays and Fridays

The weekend option is not a part-time course – it is identical to our weekday course, except running at weekends. We are happy for our students to have part-time work but advise against working full-time whilst studying.

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.
