Guiding Principles and Policies on Admissions
The College believes that learning is a lifelong pursuit.
We recognise that learners have diverse backgrounds and experiences. We wish to encourage learners who have a genuine enthusiasm for the study of homeopathy to apply. The College provides a structured curriculum, qualified tutors, guided homestudy, regular assessments, feedback channels, and administrative support. Students are expected to be of good character, motivated to study and be responsible for their own successful learning.
A sound proficiency in the written and spoken use of English is essential for successful completion of the course requirements. Admissions are open to both domestic New Zealand students and International students. (International students will be expected to demonstrate competency in written and spoken English e.g. IELTS 6.0 or equivalent).
Foundation Course Admissions (Attending and Distance Learning)
