The Department of Acupuncture runs a three academic year part time programme leading to a Licentiate in TCM – Specialising in Acupuncture.
This undergraduate programme is deemed equivalent to a Bachelor Degree in Chinese Medicine by Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, for entry to its part-time Masters degree.
The Department also provides Postgraduate seminars and CPD in Acupuncture for trained TCM professionals.
While mainly teaching on the TCM Acupuncture undergraduate level programme, all the staff in this Department also have qualifications in other specialisms of TCM, either Chinese Herbal Medicine or Medical Qigong, or, in some cases, both.
