Subject

Acupuncture

This exciting and innovative degree programme teaches acupuncture in a contemporary framework and fully encompasses the concept of 'holism'. The course provides a comprehensive education and training in the principals and practice of acupuncture, the traditional way of understanding of the nature of illness, and the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnosis and psychology. It is integrative in approach, linking traditional Chinese medicine with modern science and holism. Our teaching methods cover a mixture of theoretical study, reflection, and practical experience. The course is delivered by standard term time teaching in both the classroom and clinical setting, in combination with online seminars and occasional weekend study days. Our aim is to ensure that you become a competent and confident healthcare practitioner in acupuncture. Therapies such as Cupping, Moxibustion, Chinese massage, electric and ear acupuncture are all integrated parts of the course, and
graduates are eligible to practice them.

The course is accredited by the BAAB and BAcC and graduates are eligible to become members of BAcC or ATCM, the two largest professional bodies in UK governing the practice of acupuncture, directly after graduation.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
