Introductory events

Nutritional therapy courses at the Northern College of Acupuncture can help you to become a Nutritional Therapist.

We pride ourselves on our welcoming College - come and meet us!

We warmly invite you to join us for one of the introductory events we run throughout the year. Looking at our website and reading our prospectus will give you a flavour of what it is like to study with us, but nothing beats seeing for yourself! We would encourage you to come and meet us to find out more about our nutrition science and practice course and our special College.

Our introductory events are a full day’s programme. During the day you will meet us, look round the College, hear about the history of the College from our Principal Richard Blackwell and find out about the course from our Course Director Karen Fallis. Our Research Module Leader and Research Director will talk about research and the MSc dissertation. A popular part of the day is a Q & A session with our current students and you will also hear about the many and varied career options being pursued by our graduates. A delicious and healthy lunch is provided and this is an opportunity for you to mingle and chat to our students and staff. These events are friendly, informal and interactive - a reflection of how we teach!





One to ones

If none of the introductory event dates we offer is convenient we are happy to arrange a one-to-one visit at a mutually convenient time.


If you have already sent us your application form you can arrange to have your interview after the introductory event, or one-to-one visit, has finished. Just let us know that this is what you would like to do when you apply.

Talk to a practitioner

We also encourage you to talk to a nutrition practitioner so that you can get a better idea of what it is like to be in practice. Our Marketing Manager Denise will be able to help you.

"The day was a good balance between presentations and more “hands on” which meant that my interest was held throughout the day."

"I enjoyed hearing from graduates and about the diverse ways they practise nutrition. Food for thought!"

"The introductory event was a brilliant day covering a wide range of information from every angle that was needed."

"The introductory day was very good and confirmed that the NCA was the right place for me. It was very useful to meet the current students and hear their views about the course."
