We launched our international programme back in
1987, over 20 years ago! We’ve come along way since then and
now have students in well over 50 countries. Our course combines
the flexibility of home study with the rigorous training needed
to become a successful homeopathic practitioner. That’s because
students can blend in-depth independent work with hands on, face-to-face
training through Summer Schools and a clinical supervision process.
The School of Homeopathy is accredited by the Society
of Homeopaths in the UK, so you are assured of an in-depth,
quality programme. Once you have qualified, you will be a confident,
competent homeopath who can go out there, roll up your sleeves,
and get to work helping people at the core level of their illness.
Our flexible approach means that you can begin your study with
the programme at anytime, choose when and where you study, and to
what level. You can even ‘port’ the course from one
country to another; and you have an open invitation to attend classes
and clinics at our home base in England. All this adds up to making
our course the most in-depth and flexible programme available. Read
on and see why so many have trained with us.
Our programme progresses through four levels (see the courses
section of the site for more detail). For those that wish to practice
homeopathy we offer our highest Certification the School of Homeopathy’s
Practitioners Diploma, this course consists of:
Time: 3/4 Year
Study: Homeopathy Units 1 –
Audio recording: 96 CD’s,
Clinical Observation & Practice:
2 x 7 Day Summer School (100 hours)
Clinical Supervision: 10 cases
with 2 follow-ups each
Medical Science: Anatomy &
Physiology and Pathology & Disease (sold as separate courses)
Each year of the course is divided into easy to manage Units, which
you study whilst listening to the CD lectures from the School and
reading the specially selected books. The CD recordings bring the
best of the classroom teachings to you at home. You get numerous
CDs of patient cases with discussions as well as generous amounts
of supporting information, examples of student work and model answers.
During the course you are guided through the topics by reference
to books and supporting explanations, descriptions, and diagrams.
You are able to check your progress and reinforce your learning
through self-assessment questions and model answers. At the end
of each Unit you write up your assessments and then send them off
to your personal tutor. All our tutors are highly skilled mentors
and are used to working with students from across the world. They
are also all professional homeopaths and almost all of them studied
with us at the School of Homeopathy.
Each course is accompanied by a book list that is essential reading
for your study. We offer these books with a 15% discount through
Advanced clinical observation is critical to becoming a good
homeopath. We hold yearly International Summer Schools at the School
in the UK. These 7-day events are especially created for International
distance learning students and are led by the School’s principal
Misha Norland and other senior faculty members. The main focus is
on video cases and group work. The Summer Schools are a key part
of the programme, exposing students to plenty of clinic hours and
case taking. They are a great place for students to meet face-to-face
getting to know one another and the School of Homeopathy.
Our supervision network programme means that we take students
right through to clinical practice. International students can work
with one of our professionally trained supervisors in the UK, or
you can submit an application to work with someone you choose locally.
If you cannot find a suitable local supervisor, then you may contact
someone in our network of specially trained distance supervisors,
and communicate via email and telephone. We work with you to find
the best solution for your individual needs.
This is the highest level diploma offered by the School of
Homeopathy. There are no formal examinations; rigorous external
assessment is provided through completion of the comprehensive assignments
sets, with high standards of tutor marking. The full Practitioners
Course Diploma is equivalent to UK vocational Degree level or NVQ
Level 1 and will ensure your homeopathic career the best possible

Our International Programme is similar to our UK Programme.
Since the School of Homeopathy is a recognised leader in homeopathic
education, the UK diploma, given on completion of our Practitioner
Course, leads to immediate registration in the UK. The UK programme
is fully accredited by The Society of Homeopaths who are one of
British representatives on the European and International Councils
for Classical Homeopathy. The Society of Homeopaths was established
in 1978 and is the largest organisation representing professional
homeopaths in the UK.
It would not be possible for us to seek full accreditation with
every governing body across the world but you can be assured that
our course meets the rigorous requirements. Where we have the density
of students we do seek a process to accreditation, so for example
our course has an accredited process in the UK, US, Canada, Australia
and Portugal. By purchasing our home study course you are assured
of receiving a high quality of product, service and care. However
students should note that completion of our International programme
does not confer a license to practice in your country. Whilst we
have a very high reputation, as does the Society of Homeopaths,
it is wise to review the official licensure policies of your own
country before commencing in practice.
