Herbal Medicine Foundation Course Certificate

Assessment is provided through completion of the assignments at the end of each Unit, with high standards of tutor marking. The Herbal Medicine Foundation Course certification is equivalent to NVQ Level 4 and will provide you with a solid foundation should you wish to undertake further study.
To complete the course you have to attain a passing grade in each of the assignments.

If you wish to qualify at Diploma level, rather than Certificate level, then you will be required to complete the Anatomy and Physiology Course as well as the Herbal Medicine Foundation Course, unless you have proof of a completed Anatomy and Physiology Course and you apply for exemption. Contact us for more information.

You will then be awarded:

The School of Health: Herbal Medicine Foundation Diploma
Requires: Herbal Medicine Foundation Course and Anatomy and Physiology Course.

The School of Health: Herbal Medicine Foundation Certificate
Requires: Herbal Medicine Foundation Course.

If you qualify at Certificate level and then complete our Anatomy and Physiology course at a later date you will be able to upgrade your qualification from certificate to diploma. You will need to pay a small admin fee and will be asked to return your original certificate.
