Chinese medicine training – naturally outstanding

Follow the experiences of acupuncture students and graduates at LCTA and find out what it's really like to study Traditional Chinese Medicine


Lcta 09 048

Run as a not-for-profit organisation and based in North London, LCTA is a private college and one of the UK’s leading schools of Oriental Medicine.  It offers a range of entry-level and advanced courses in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, tui na and qi gong.

Courses are available for study on a full- or part-time basis, including weekend study options.  This flexibility enables many career-changers and parents to pursue their dreams within the confines of their existing daily commitments.

LCTA’s courses focus increasingly on clinical practice as knowledge develops, so that many students in their final year have regular experience of treating patients under supervision within the College’s high street clinic.  Clinical practice is backed up by a solid grounding in both Western and Chinese medicine, including detailed Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and the study of anatomy.

By ensuring that students are trained to the highest possible standards and enabling ongoing professional development, graduates often become experts in their chosen field.

LCTA’s courses were accredited by their respective professional bodies well in advance of statutory regulation and the College remains at the forefront of Chinese medicine study.  Graduates of accredited courses enter into practice with automatic professional body membership, a comprehensive knowledge of their chosen field and the practical knowledge and clinical experience necessary to hit the ground running.
