Our course is recognised by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board, the educational arm of the British Acupuncture Council.


British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB)

BAABIn September 1997, its 25th Anniversary Year, the College achieved national professional recognition in the form its first full accreditation of its Acupuncture course by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB). The BAAB was established to accredit, or approve, degree level training programmes and to establish and monitor rigorous academic and institutional standards within acupuncture training.

The College was re-accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board in 2006, and has recently been fully re-accredited in April 2016. We work closely with the BAAB in order not just to enhance and further course development but to ensure that we are offering our students the best professional training possible.
