What other expenses are to be expected?: 
Professional and Foundation courses only:
Ask for our “Budgeting for the course” and “How do we compare” sheets.
All academic training is inclusive, including medical science.
Some additional clinical costs occur, and we judge some textbooks essential. We recommend you budget £3,000 per annum; it is possible to spend less.

Entry requirement: 
Professional and Foundation courses only:
This is a College for adults who will learn from us and each other. So:
we interview all eligible applicants, wherever feasible in person;
we are interested in the skills, experience and knowledge you bring, however achieved; &
we look for motivation, enquiry, reflection and potential relevant to your intended study.
You are an eligible applicant if you are: over 21; already have the right to live and study in the UK or EU; and, have no convictions for sexual offences or abuse of children or vulnerable adults.

Time commitment for each of the following: (contact time, study time and clinical training)
Professional and Foundation courses only:
All lecturing and clinical teachers are freely accessible to students and generous with their time.

11 Teaching Weekends are held between late September and early July. Each teaching day runs from 9.30am to 5.15pm, and includes a minimum of six hours’ lecturing time (a total of 132 hours per annum).
You will receive homework assignments, reading and self-study suggestions at each weekend.

In your first/Foundation year, you will receive 15-25 hours of clinic experience, and additionally treat some family and friends under supervision for everyday illnesses.
(See below for Years 2-4.)

The course is designed to fit around work and childcare, so study time is very flexible. We recommend an average 15-16 hours a week spent at College weekends/clinics or in independent study and activity. We know from experience some of your learning time can be spent usefully applying homoeopathic insight in everyday settings – like observing how people walk and talk in supermarkets and considering how that expresses their dis-ease and pathology.

Professional course only:
Your clinical training requires a minimum of 150 hours’ clinic attendance by the end of the four years. In your busiest clinical year, you may attend a clinic a month. Clinics are run at weekends as well as weekdays.

You will also take a minimum of 10 of your own chronic cases under supervision. This is a critical element of your training, and requires a considerable investment of your time to ensure patients experience quality, timely and relevant treatment.

What facilities does your college offer: 
A diverse group of quality lecturers in all subjects delivering our syllabus in different styles of participative learning, embracing high and low tech.
Regular guest lecturers bringing new developments, experimental approaches and/or their special expertise.

A variety of College clinics run in Manchester and West Yorkshire, to meet different needs. One runs the day before the College weekend; another on a Saturday; some are midweek. There is a low-cost clinic in a dynamic multiracial area; diverse chronic clinics; and, an evening drop-in for everyday illnesses.
Arrangements to provide clinical experience closer to your home, if you need it.
Friendly and supportive College teaching weekends, with: a strong sense of community; an endless supply of hot drinks; kitchen facilities or local take away and eat in food.
A College library and bookshop.

Twice yearly social events with food, second hand books and entertainment.
Endless encouragement.

The opportunity to take a year out or extend your final examination board by a year, to allow for life changes.

How can prospective students find out more about your course before committing to study with you?
We encourage all potential students to attend an Open Day at the College, where you receive a presentation abut the course, a chance to meet and talk to students, and attend a Year 1 lecture and final Q&A session. This gives you a real feel for the place.
Our Gentle Health talks and Introduction to Homoeopathy days can also feed into your familiarisation, if you choose to attend one.

Once you express an interest, you will receive a copy of our Vital Enquirer e-newsletter, which will keep you up to date with ways to meet us and guide you to website pages of particular interest.

There’s a lot of information on www.nwch.co.uk. If you follow the “enrol now” button you will not be committing yourself to anything, but will find yourself at a page with lots of useful links. You will also find student testimonials and professional evaluation of
the College on the website.
