"I wanted to become an acupuncturist because I had experienced its amazing benefits.
Deciding to take on this journey was like one of those moments when your perceptual intuition is so clear that you genuinely know what you need to do deep inside you. Thus I granted that calling and never looked back since then.
After comprehensive research about all the major acupuncture colleges in the UK I choose CICM. The course is accredited by Kingston university and it gives the course a great deal of accountability. CICM has a great location. Reading is a beautiful and buzzing town and it’s only 25 minutes from London.
The staff and teachers at CICM are super helpful and friendly. Every student has a personal tutor and they are a great help whenever you need that extra support throughout your studies. It’s a very supportive and caring environment and everyone genuinely wants you to flourish and when I started it felt like I had found the right place to transpire and grow. You meet people at CICM from different walks of life and they all have an exciting story to tell.
The course has exceeded my expectations. Studying acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is not just another university course. It’s the wisdom and a lifestyle that has been around for thousands of years. It has helped me to grow massively in my personal and professional life and I’m living and applying its profound wisdom in my daily life which is a helping me to be a better person. Six months before joining CICM I was crossing the North Atlantic Ocean on a classic sailing yacht but studying acupuncture at CICM was one of the best decisions in my life."

Open day format
Before the open day please watch the videos by clicking on the red box named open day videos.
The online open day will take a questions and answers format. Joint Principals Angie Hicks and Jonathan Pledger along with the Dean Peter Mole and Registrar Karen Starr will be on hand via Zoom to answer your questions about all aspects of the course and college.
You may, for example, want to know more about the curriculum, learning and assessment, student finance or even the impact of the current pandemic on the course. There will also be an opportunity to talk to a graduate and a current student.
The purpose of these sessions is for you to know if this is the right college for you and we will do all we can to give you a honest and realistic idea of what we are offering.
Browsing our website will give you a first taste of what it’s like to study at the college. Ultimately nothing beats coming to an open day. This will give you a valuable insight into what it’s like to study with us and what makes our course unique. At the moment until further notice the open days are online but once we are open we would love to come along and see our beautiful environment.
