About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The Degree programme aims to develop in graduates a critical knowledge and understanding of natural therapies practice by offering students opportunities to study, critique, and reflect upon the specialised practice-relevant knowledge and philosophy of natural therapies, as well as undertaking clinical practice.

Graduates will not only be successful in a range of skills and techniques informed by theoretical analyses and applied research but should have confidence and assurance to work in the profession; be able to make professional decisions; work with others professionally; and demonstrate a range of the personal qualities expected of natural health practitioners. They should also show a willingness to maintain currency in the field of natural therapies and to continue learning.

Specifically, graduates of SPCNM will integrate and synthesise their specialised theoretical knowledge and apply their diagnostic, problem solving, and analytical skills to manage client care by history taking, differential diagnosis and treating, appropriate prescribing, referring and advising, educating on prevention, demonstrating cultural sensitivity and inclusiveness and manage their own continuing education.

Graduates will be well placed to make significant contributions to the practice of natural therapies.
