ICOM at the Show
Come and see us in the Exhibitor’s Hall. You can find us at stand number C32. We will be chatting about the college, the course, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, our clinic and much more; there will be competitions, hand-outs, literature and of course opportunities for one to one talks.
Many people have a fascination with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, and more people are training to be Acupuncturist practitioners than ever before. With increased public understanding and acceptance of acupuncture in the world at large, we see our graduates enjoying very rewarding careers.
What’s Special About ICOM?
Besides being the longest established Acupuncture college in Europe, ICOM is a special place – located in serene surroundings, we have a reputation for being friendly, supportive and are completely passionate about Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, attracting people from all over the world.
ICOM is the only accredited training college in the UK to teach Classical Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine philosophies to its students, particularly the unique aspect of Stems and Branches. This focus on philosophy and the classics not only expands the students’ minds and their learning experiences but also gives a depth of knowledge that enables them to practice on a more profound level.
With small class sizes, the students at the college receive significant benefit from a high level of personal attention and support throughout the course. This greatly enhances learning and the overall enjoyment of the course.
ICOM offers flexible study options, including part-time and weekend courses. ICOM’s students also benefit from the busy on-site training clinic that serves the local community. Students can observe senior practitioners at work and also practise their skills in the supervised clinic sessions on the course. The integrated clinic practice training we offer is highly enjoyable and for all of our students is one of the many highlights of the whole degree course.
Our BSc Hons Acupuncture degree is highly regarded and enjoys a renowned international reputation and heritage; it is validated by the University of Greenwich, accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board and reviewed annually by the Quality Assurance Agency. We have been highly commended for our work and our students’ learning experiences. All this means that ICOM provides an exceptionally high level of training and care to our students, which stands them in good stead both for the duration of the course and far beyond, into their life as a qualified Acupuncture practitioner.
Come and see us at Mind Body Spirit. If you can’t make it and would like to know more about our course then give us a call today – we’d be delighted to speak to you.
You can also arrange to visit us for a tour of our college and an informal chat with one of our faculty members. Call our friendly registrar, Leeanne, today on 01342 313107.
