Q – What qualifications do CHE offer?
A – As a graduate of the BSc course you’re awarded a BSc (Hons) in Homeopathy, validated by Middlesex University. In addition you get a Licentiate (a licence to practise) which CHE awards. You’re entitled to use BSc (Hons) LCHE after your name.
Q – Do these qualifications allow me to register with a professional homeopathy organisation?
A – Yes. The Society of Homeopaths, the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths and the Homeopathic Medical Association are the main registering bodies in the UK.
Q – How much home study is required?
A – Assignments usually involve 15-20 hours of study per month. You may choose to spend longer as you become keen to learn more about homeopathy!
Q – How long are the courses?
A – The part-time courses are two years; or three years full-time. The BSc degree conversion course for registered homeopaths is a one year part-time course.
Q – What does part-time/full-time mean?
A – The part-time courses run for 10 weekends a year, one weekend a month, from September to June. Clinic attendance requires one extra full day a month from the second to fourth year.
The one year BSc conversion is part-time and follows the same dates as the BSc part-time course.
The full-time courses run for two days a week, three weeks a month over three terms, from September to June. Clinic attendance is included in the teaching days. It begins in the last term of the first year and finishes in the third year.
Q – Are there any exams?
A – The BSc (Hons) programmes have an academic focus and therefore exams are required to assess your progress. Other assessments are written, oral, theoretical and practical. Assessments for the Licentiate courses are similar but have a more vocational focus.
Q – Are there any grants available?
A – You can apply for charitable grants or student loans from different financial institutions. Find out more here.
