Next year the School of Homeopathy will be celebrating its 30th anniversary and the accomplishment of 3,500 students worldwide who have enrolled upon its diploma courses.
Founded in 1981 it is the longest-running School in the UK and has been at the forefront of the resurgence in homeopathy over the last quarter of a century and has pioneered many developments in homeopathic education.
The school offers a comprehensive study programme with a proven track record and a choice of part-time attendance (one weekend a month) or 'open-university' style home study.
The practice of homeopathy has been seeing a resurgence in recent decades, and this has been particularly visible in the UK, with an increasing demand for teaching leading to many colleges springing up during the last 25 years. Although many have closed or changed hands, the School of Homeopathy has continued to attract students through its international reputation for excellence and its ability to produce practitioners who are empowered by their knowledge and skill. The School of Homeopathy cultivates holistic approaches to health and sickness that include perspectives of sould and spirit as well as body and ecology, and aspire to awaken and encourage awareness and compassion as an intergral part of our practitioner development.
The School moved to Stroud last year and runs out of Hawkwood College. Hawkwood College is a 19th century country house in the beautiful and peaceful Cotswold countryside. Set in 42 acres of gardens, woods and fields, with its own spring water, it is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The rooms are light, airy and informal with lovely period features and plenty of character making them ideal for adulty education and the study of homeopathy.
