This course is for people who want more than a beginners’ course but may not want to commit to the full training to become a practitioner. The emphasis during this year is to combine inspirational learning with enjoyment of participating on the course with fellow students but without any assessments.
From September 2017 we are offering this course through Virtual Learning as well as a class-based course – read on to find out more.
Classes take place one weekend per month for 10 months October to June. Over the year you’ll be given a vital and solid base in homeopathic principles and philosophy. You’ll also study well-known homeopathic remedies (Materia Medica) and begin to understand case taking and case analysis. You will cover some medical sciences giving you a broad knowledge of the systems of the body. The medical sciences curriculum runs concurrently with the homeopathic syllabus, allowing integration between these two areas with relevant homeopathic therapeutics.
You will learn about the homeopathic approach to the dis-ease process, discover how to look at health holistically and uncover how disease may manifest in the individual. You’ll develop case-taking skills for both acute and chronic cases – learning the classical approach as the basis for chronic case analysis and prescribing.
We’re excited to announce that from September 2017 we’ll be also offering this course by Virtual Learning! This means students who live outside the UK can attend the course from the comfort of their own home. They will get the benefit of full participation, group mentoring, and have access to recordings of the whole programme.
Students who complete the course will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion of the course. This certificate gives an excellent foundation in homeopathy, but it is not a full practitioners’ qualification. Some students enjoy the course so much, and find such a deep connection with homeopathy, that they decide to take their studies further and want to transfer to the practitioner programme during the course. There is an option up until January of the first year, to transfer to the practitioner programme where you will be required to complete the assessments.
Teaching on the one-year foundation course takes place over 10 weekends, one weekend a month from October to June. The College day runs from 9.30am to 5.30pm on Saturday and Sunday.
The course is based at Bloomsbury Square, central London. The college is easily accessible by public transport, and provides spacious and comfortable teaching facilities.
