We are now in collaboration with the University of Greenwich who validate our three year BSc Honours Acupuncture degree programme. Students of ICOM are also affiliated students of the University of Greenwich. The range of services and facilities provided include access to information services such as the online library, student support, and short summer courses.
We enjoy, and benefit from, strong working relationships with our university partner and believe that the developmental and constructive framework of working with such valuable institutions of higher education continues to enhance and inform our college’s standards.
British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB)
In 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 reaccredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board in 2006, and has recently been fully reaccredited in November 2009. 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.
British Acupuncture Council (BAcC)
Graduates of the International College of Oriental Medicine are eligible to apply for registration with the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) and so attain professional recognition amongst its membership. The letters placed after the name of such a member are: MBAcC. The British Acupuncture Council is engaged in much work to represent and regulate the high standards of the profession.
There are currently only 9 fully accredited courses in the UK. If you would like more information about these please contact the Board directly or visit their website.
