Course fees for BSc & MSc in Acupuncture commencing in 2017

 

We know that studying involves a big commitment of time, energy and money, so we try to keep our fees as low as we can. As a not-for-profit organisation, we spend every spare penny on continually developing and improving the training we offer. Our priorities are to offer you a first-class experience and deliver value for money. Your fees include all the teaching and learning opportunities provided by our teaching staff, all your clinical experience in our teaching clinic, tutorials, library and online resources, support services, access to our online e-learning facility, and your registration fees with Middlesex University.

If you do not already have a University degree, and haven’t already had a loan or grant, you may be eligible for a student Tuition Fee Loan of up to £6,165 per year. Tuition Fee Loans help pay for your course. In addition, Maintenance Loans will help with living costs (e.g. books and bills). You have to pay back all student loans. They are repaid at a low rate of interest and do not have to be paid back until your income has reached £21,000 a year, at which point you pay back 9% of your income over £21,000.
