The student experience

Our online MSc in Advanced Oriental medicine currently welcomes students from all across the globe.

Students have joined  our cohorts from all over the world:

  • Denmark
  • Norway
  • Finland
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Canada
  • United Kingdom
  • Israel
  • Singapore
  • South Africa


Being a student on our online MSc courses means that you are part of an international group of highly skilled, motivated, and connected practitioners who share the same goal – to delve deeper into their subject speciality and move their professional practice to the next level.

For the majority of our students who enrolled for our early cohorts, it was their first time as “e-learners” and most would say that they were pretty sceptical at first about our claim that they would feel part of a cohort. Now though they would be the first to tell you that we were right! Not only do our students connect during meetings – they also connect throughout the week via the discussion forums and online conferencing.

Not content just to meet up online, some of our students are meeting up at international conferences such as the ARRC Symposium in London and TCM Kongress in Rothenburg, Germany and the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) conference in the UK.

"The Advanced Nutrition MSc is superbly run by the highly knowledgeable Jane Nodder, who, along with the rest of the tutors, provide a fantastic level of teaching and support. Distance learning is quite a different approach for me. However I don’t feel isolated - quite the opposite - we’ve built a great cohort. In addition the material is delivered in a user-friendly way. I’ve already recommended this course to several colleagues - some of whom are already applying!"
