The attendance course is run from Hawkwood
College of adult education in Gloucestershire (UK). Classes one
weekend a month, ten months of the year. By coming each month you
get to know us and your fellow learners. Group numbers are kept
down, between twelve and twenty in year one, making certain that
everyone is heard. Since each person’s style of learning is
different we are attentive to your individual needs.
The culture that develops is one of support, trust and cooperation
within which self-reflection and openness is encouraged. We show
you videos of patients, illuminating case receiving and case analysis
from the start. As we learn from each other and about homeopathy,
so we develop and deepen our trust in the spiritual aspects of healing.
This, alongside your academic education, is encouraged by your teachers
and your mentors who give on-going guidance through comment on your
assignments. Your year head and the principal provide pastoral care,
while tutors help you assess your progress. We have developed a
mentor-assessed, non-graded system of evaluation based upon portfolio
presentations of selected work presented during tutorial sessions.
We set no exams.
We meet at Hawkwood College which has well-appointed and beautiful
rooms, filled with light, warmth and serenity. Hawkwood is a 19th
Century country house in the peaceful Cotswold countryside. Set
in 42 acres of gardens, woods and fields the house provides a tranquil
environment conducive to reflective study where the busy world can
be left behind and we can appreciate life’s renewing cycles
and seasons. It has overnight facilities and can accommodate 50
guests. It is well known for its delicious, fresh and wholesome
Though secluded, Hawkwood is less than two miles from the vibrant
mill town of Stroud and easily accessible by train and road. Stroud
has a mainline train station reachable from London in 90 minutes
and is a short distance from both the M4 and M5.
We also have a reference library and computer facilities, as well
as the practice clinic with its video link to the teaching rooms.

We invite you to ten weekends, starting in September each year,

attend clinic days on each Friday before the study weekends (except
the first Friday of Year three). We hope that you will join together

friendship, laughter and learning.
"The School of Homeopathy’s programme has been the biggest stepping stone in my homeopathic education.
It has given me so many gifts. It has given me deep understanding
and a humility about human nature and the laws of healing and cure.
It has allowed me to become a practitioner, and has given me the
desire and commitment to continue my life-long study of classical
homeopathy. It has been clear to me from the start that the School
of Homeopathy has a deep commitment to helping people become the
best practitioners that they can be in order that the lives of other
people will be touched by the healing powers of homeopathy. "
Robert S. Jones
With many choices of homeopathy schools now available, it
may not be easy deciding which one is going to be right for you.
Although many schools follow similar basic curricula, the style,
the methods of teaching and support may vary considerably. Even
the basic philosophy of healing, as well as the emphasis on supplementary
subjects, may differ considerably. It is therefore a good idea that
you check out your options thoroughly before making a final decision
– after all, you will only want to carry out your core training
once, confident that it is authentic.
On this web-site, we have tried to present the core of our approach
to teaching and caring. However, we also invite you to contact us
if you have any queries or if you need advice about what may be
entailed in studying homeopathy. Do compare us with other schools
and do come and visit us to encounter what we teach and to ask us
any further questions you may have.
