The Acupuncture Academy, Leamington Spa

Acupuncture Course at The Acupuncture AcademyThe Acupuncture Academy

… home to a unique degree level acupuncture course, provisionally accredited by the BAAB and delivered using the best in distance learning techniques alongside practical, vocational training.  Our use of e-learning means that if you thought it was impossible to juggle work and  family around the time expected in class, you might now be able to take that next step.  Attendance in person at TAA is ten weekends in your first and second years, with a good proportion of additional study undertaken at home, in your own time, using high quality e-lessons and teaching materials.  No compromise though; time in class contains a high proportion of practical skills hours, in fact you will spend 150 hours more on those skills that matter with patients than you would have done on the fully accredited degree course that you might have studied at the College of Traditional Acupuncture up until it’s closure in 2011.  You will find full details on the course structure and content in the ‘Acupuncture Course’ section of this site, and in ‘Prospectus’ you’ll find FAQs, admissions information, an introduction to our e-learning, course fees and more.

Wherever your next big life choice takes you though, be it to The Academy or to one of the other great acupuncture institutions, for now we will simply wish you the best for this next stage of your journey, and invite you to contact us with any questions that you might have along the way…

Kind regards from us all

Jen, Julie and The Team

Our video…

Well Bruce did his level best with some very poor raw materials (myself and Julie!) and managed to produce a video that we can possibly live with.  He was very kind to us, extremely patient, our students were fabulous (thanks Gaynor and Kerry) and Michael did sterling work too….. Oh and for the practitioners out […]
