Course Additional Entry

A good undergraduate degree and a professional Chinese medicine and/or acupuncture qualification are essential for admission. All graduates who are qualified are eligible to study for the PGCert, PGDip or MSc. Practitioner degrees without a first degree in Chinese medicine or acupuncture may be admitted on the condition that they have relevant skills and experience as demonstrated by membership of relevant professional bodies, which are the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine UK, the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine and the British Acupuncture Council. Applicants must have competence in English language and we normally require grade C GCSE or an equivalent qualification. The most common English language requirements for international students are IELTS 6.5 (with minimum 6.0 in all 4 components) or TOEFL internet based 87 (with at least 21 in listening and writing, 22 in speaking and 23 in reading).
