Quality Programs

Over the years, the School has produced hundreds of graduates who are highly skilled and meticulous TCM practitioners. The precise clinical skills acquired at the School are used to achieve accurate diagnoses and successful treatments and enable graduates to work professionally in local and international environments.

The teaching curriculum prepares you to establish your own practice. Within three years of graduation, over 80% have established practices in New Zealand and overseas countries. We continually strive to ensure the education and training services are current, relevant and at an acceptable professional standard. The school’s range of bachelor’s degree, postgraduate certificate, diploma and masters’ degree programmes connect you to the workplace by ensuring the curriculum is current and relevant, and the contents are of the right mix of theory and practical skills. Our academic staircase enables you to attain multiple qualifications by gaining credits in lower-level studies towards a higher-level qualification.
