The home study Foundation Diploma Course makes a complete arch, from first principles to the finished structure of classical homeopathy. Philosophy is covered in great depth and various approaches for studying materia medica are given, helping you to find the way that works best for you. The approach is completely classical, based upon Hahnemannian and Kentian principles. The distance learning Foundation Diploma Course is available via online, correspondence or attendance and has allowed many students in the UK to progress onto year two, not only at our own School but also at other establishments as its high standard is recognised and appreciated as a sound structure to build upon.
