uk program

We launched our UK programme back in 1981, over 25 years ago! In the UK we offer the unique combination of attendance or home study. The first two years of the course can either be done through attendance or open-university style home study. Our course combines the flexibility of distance learning and attendance 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.

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 home study approach to the start of the UK course 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 home study part of the course from one country to another. 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:

Course overview
The course is by part-time attendance. Classes start in September each year and you come for one weekend every month in years 1 and 2, and one weekend every month plus a Friday in years 3 and 4. Fridays are the live clinic days where students watch cases via live video link as they are taken by the homeopath, the whole class then analysise the case and agrees on a prescription. By coming each month you get first hand teaching from our world-class faculty and you get to know us and your fellow learners. The School is situated in 42 acres of beautiful grounds in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. Each weekend there are lectures on philosophy, material medica, repertory and casework. During the School weekend homework is set. This is completed during the month and handed in the following month. Evaluation of work is through continual assessment, there are no exams. The School is based in easy reach of the M4 and M5 motorway, main line train station (Travel time from London by train is 90 mins) and Bristol airport. Read more...

Home study
Our unique approach for UK students means that you have the flexible option for year one and year two of either part-time attendance or home study. You can also change over between these two at any time, subject to arrangement. All UK students come together at May and June weekends at the end of Year 2 (the Introduction into Practice Course), ready for the more practical and clinically based training in the Practitioner Advanced Diploma Course - Years 3 & 4 (with optional classes in Year 5 at practitioner level).

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.

We also run UK Summer Schools; these are held at the School of Homeopathy in Devon. These weekend events are held in May or June each year and are open to all students, but priority is given to UK students. All UK home study students have to attend at least one UK Summer School.

Each course is accompanied by a book list that is essential reading for your study. We offer these books with a 15% discount through Alternative Training.

Clinical Observation & Practice
Advanced clinical observation is critical to becoming a good homeopath. In years 3 and 4 you will attend a clinic day at the School every Friday before the main School weekend. 19 clinic days in total over the two years. The School’s on-site clinic is where practice is modelled by Misha Norland, the School’s principal. The group observe, discuss and analyse the case. The clinic is where the ‘expert’ model of practice happens, it is where you work together with other students to learn and develop case skills.

Supervised Practice
Our supervision network programme means that we take students right through to clinical practice. UK 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. Supervision is a key part of the final years of the course. It is essential to becoming a competent, confident, creative and compassionate homeopath. During the later half of the Practitioner Advanced Diploma course you will chose and work with a supervisor. Our supervisors are fully trained homeopaths who will work along side you during your case receiving. You will take some cases with them in the same room and some on your own. You will discuss all aspects of your cases and practice with them and they will help you to develop your competence as a homeopath as well as ensure your prescriptions. Supervision is a wonderful and rewarding stage of development where you will learn to take flight as a homeopath. We were one of the first to regonise and develop supervision as a critical part of the course.

The Practitioner Advanced Diploma (DSHom UK)
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 start.

We also offer various intermediate certificates and diplomas so you can complete just one section of the Programme , have a break and then continue with another section at a later date if you wish.

Four main stages of certification are awarded by the School for students progressing through the Programme , plus certificates on completion of Alternative Training’s Anatomy & Physiology, Pathology & Disease, and Nutrition (optional) courses.

"The flexibility that the school gives is a major relief, especially with the upheavals of living and moving to various different countries/continents. The tutor has always been nothing but supportive throughout and the school's international programme caters well for that."
