A Career for life or just another Degree Course – How to avoid choosing the wrong course?
Choosing the right Homeopathic Course – Having decided you feel you have an interest in studying homeopathy, the next question is which course should you choose? The following information will serve as a good starting point and lead you to making the right choice the first time.
With so many different courses available – part time, full time, correspondence courses, academic or vocational, university courses, and courses run by private colleges – it’s hard to know which one will be right for you. Please be clear that each course is unique in its leadership, approach, philosophy, teaching standards and resources. No one course is the same as another!
What’s right for you?
Just as in homeopathy we give an individual prescription to match each patient’s needs, so in pursuing your homeopathic education you should find a course that meets your needs. If you’re considering studying homeopathy, it’s important to bear in mind that the provision of homeopathic training in the UK covers a broad spectrum. The main qualification courses offer is either a licentiate diploma or a degree in homeopathy.
Students from overseas who are intending to study in the UK should first check what qualifications for practice are required in their own countries, if they are considering returning home to practice after their training. (Check out the www.Boiron.com website to help with this).
Why so many people get it wrong.
Our experience is that students make choices that are based on secondary factors rather than primary factors that lead them to get it wrong. The problem is people think all colleges are basically the same and therefore base their decisions on secondary factors such as location, venue, reputation, cost, individual tutors, friends etc.
Remember that choosing the wrong college and having to change can be expensive – training to be a homeopath can cost in excess of £10,000 and wasting a year on the wrong course will not only demotivate you but be expensive as well.
