If you wish to study homeopathy in the UK, you are in luck – there are so many options available nowadays so finding a course should be relatively easy.
You can of course study online using a UK website, or go to a school if you so please – or a mix of both.
Becoming a good homeopath is all about finding the right balance of different factors.
Choose your education wisely, because it will benefit you in the long run.
I know that my homeopathy school was one of the best in England, and I know this because it took me a long time to choose one.
I wanted to make sure that I educated myself to the best of my ability, so I weighed all the possible options.
Choosing a school for homeopathy can therefore be daunting, so you may want to take the following things into account – they are just some aspects that you should consider when choosing a school in the UK.
But before we look at those, here’s a video on some of the Homeopathy basics told by an American – but most is still relevant to us here in the UK:
The Course Structure
What you need to consider first is how the courses are structured. Homeopathy schools tend to have a very rigid structure, and you will need to design your schedule around the course.
However, if you want a more flexible structure, you should try applying for an online homeopathy course instead.
The Teaching Styles
As with all schools, some homeopathic schools tend to focus more on the bookish aspects of learning, while some are more hands on.
You will have to decide whether you want more lectures and more reading, or whether you want on-the-spot training in groups or with a licensed homeopath.
In my opinion, you should choose a school that offers a bit of both.
The Assessment Methods
Homeopathic schools may choose to assess you in different ways – some give exams, others will require papers, projects, or assign lengthy homework drills.
Others may also have you do group activities, while others offer on-the-job assessments.
Try to ask how you will be assessed and decide if you are comfortable with that arrangement.
The Schools of Thought
Homeopathy has two schools of thought:
Classical: Classical has a more philosophical approach and is older than practical homeopathy.
Practical: Practical homeopathy on the other hand, uses a lot of chemistry and is based off modern practices.
You can learn a lot from both schools of thought.
The Clinic Arrangements
At one point in your homeopathy course, you will be required to make clinical arrangements. Ask what clinic you will likely be assigned to, or whether you should be looking for a clinic yourself.
Homeopathy is a medical field, and while you can eventually move to a home practice, you will have to gain experience in a clinical setting first.
Homeopathy school in the UK can be expensive! Make sure that you can afford the tuition fees and that you can pay for all of your materials, including medicines, medical tools, and other miscelleneous fees.
Ask what the scope of your tuition includes as well – ideally, all of your fees should be included already.
Once you have taken all of these things into account, you should be ready to weigh all of your options and choose the perfect British homeopathic school for you.
