BAAB Accredited

BAAB Accredited



The Acupuncture Academy runs one of the few degree level acupuncture courses in the UK that is fully accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB), which means that graduates are eligible for membership of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and can use the letters M.B.Ac.C. after their name.  

The BACC itself is recognised by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA)which is in turn accountable to Parliament, meaning that the public can be further assured of extremely high standards in governance, standard-setting, education and training, management, complaints and information. The BAcC provides its members with support at both a national and local level and many of our students join as student members at the start of their courses.


A fully BAAB accredited  course provides you with the level of professional qualification required of all BAcC members and for most or all of our graduates this means a straightforward transition into the professional body after graduation, providing there are no issues around criminal convictions or specific health concerns. For more information on this please feel free to give us a call, or speak to the BAcC’s Admissions Officer directly.

BAAB accredited courses guarantee excellence in training, safe practice and professional conduct

Accredited courses are taught at honours degree level, and embody the critical awareness and academic rigour commensurate with equivalent professional healthcare programmes at this level. Each teaching institution designs and develops its own curriculum, based on a total of 3,600 hours, of which a minimum of 400 hours must be spent in a clinical setting. A BAAB accredited course offers a thorough grounding in Chinese medicine theory together with physiology, anatomy and other western medical sciences, in order to provide an inte-grated 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 lead governing body for acupuncture.

Fully Accredited Courses

These are courses that currently substantially meet the requirements of the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB). Scrutiny of these developed programmes has been through documentation, discussion with the course team, students and graduates of the programme, evidence of external examiner reports and students’ assessed work and observation of teaching in the classroom, the clinic and online.
