Professional acupuncture training designed with busy people in mind

The UK's first fully accredited, degree level blended learning acupuncture course, focusing on the five elements but covering every aspect of acupuncture theory.  Study the theory at home, supported by your tutors, and join us for ten weekends a year for in-person practical sessions

Ensuring the very highest standards of education - only graduates from BAAB accredited colleges can register with the British Acupuncture Council – the UK’s largest, member-led, professional body for traditional acupuncturists.  

Wherever you choose to study (and of course we hope it is with us!), please check that the course is BAAB accredited.  Their accreditation is the only way you can be sure you will have the high level of skill and theoretical knowledge needed to be effective in practice.  A reputable acupuncture course should take time to complete because you are learning what you need to join a healthcare profession, and to take responsibility for members of the public and their complex health conditions.  There really isn't a short cut to being good at this!

Why choose The Acupuncture Academy?

  1. This is truly flexible learning.  Our pioneering, blended-learning acupuncture course means that you can study around your family and work, and can even study the theory from elsewhere in the world - we've had students come to us from as far away as Malaysia.  Wherever you are based though, you will need to visit us in person roughly one weekend a month for your practical sessions

  2. Never-ending support.  Learn how to become an acupuncturist with dedicated support from start, to finish and beyond.  Our tutors are always available to answer your questions on the online forums, in class and in tutorials, plus we also provide support post graduation on our dedicated graduate Facebook page.  Our relatively small classes mean that you will always have the attention you need.

  3. Combination of acupuncture styles and techniques.  Our acupuncture training combines all aspects of Five Element acupuncture theory, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, in a unique and innovative way, meaning that you are equipped to treat specific ailments, as well as your patient's holistic wellbeing.
