Courses have a deadline date see dates we cannot guarantee spaces and early enrollment is advised
The course will start on the deadline date with the first online module. Students who have paid their deposit can have the first module made available up to a month earlier if they wish to get started with the online content before that.
What happens if I miss some of the course or need to defer?
The course has a 100% attendance requirement. However, If you are forced to miss up to 2 days due to exceptional circumstances we can accept that so long as you do your best to catch up. Note that in order to graduate, students must have passed the exams and completed at least 2 treatments in the college clinic (done during the final weekend or on the advanced course). This means essentially that you cannot miss the final weekend and graduate, unless you are doing the advanced course as well.
On such an intensive course missing more than 2 days (out of 16 or out of 24 if you are including advanced) would put you below the AA required hours and would mean that you would not be able to graduate. The college cannot be held responsible for weather events, natural disasters, illness or transport issues. In such circumstances, it will be the students’ responsibility to work with the college to arrange for catch up hours. There will also be a fee for this (see below).
We will always work to facilitate “catch up” classes with another group or independently, but this is not automatic or guaranteed to suit your schedule, and it will incur a minimum fee of £150 day.
If a student is unable to continue on the course due to unforeseen circumstances such as illness the college will do our best to assist. In such circumstances it may be possible to defer and join another group. Changing course is potentially expensive and disruptive and it will incur a minimum £500 fee in all circumstances. Courses must be completed within 2 years of the original date the student started the course.
How do I Enrol?
We appreciate payment by cheque/cash or bank transfer and the deposit by Paypal if preferred.
It is helpful if students can let us know at the earliest convenience if they have an interest in taking the course. The deposit will secure your place on our acupuncture course. We will keep you updated with any changes or developments at the earliest possible opportunity. We do not encourage applicants from our immediate area since we already have several graduates working in Bath.
