The course is structured to support your intellectual, professional and practical skills development. Much of this is achieved through the use of themes that run through the modules and across levels. So in addition to the specific knowledge and skills required in herbal medicine the course integrates clinical skills development, health sciences, personal and professional development, and research skills. Your development as a scholar practitioner comes together in the University’s innovative Polyclinic where, under the guidance of experienced clinic tutors, your learning from the various aspects of the course is integrated.
Herbal medicine has developed from the traditional use of plants and plant extracts from many parts of the world, confirmed and updated by scientific understanding and research. However, it maintains a holistic approach to treatment, focusing on illness in the person rather than symptoms of disease.
The course provides a practice-orientated education in herbal medicine, which includes both the theoretical and clinical development necessary for working with patients, and the preparation and dispensing of remedies. The course also includes fieldwork of growing and gathering herbs within approved organic sites, and visiting herb collections and conservation habitats.
The course is fully accredited by the European Herbal & Traditional Medicine Practitioners Association (EHTPA), and you will be able to apply for membership once you have successfully completed Year 3 (Credit Level 6).
