Allen College of Homoeopathy has welcomed students into the physical classroom for almost thirty years. However, times have changed greatly, particularly over the last few years. Due to these global shifts to online learning and with the aim of making the course more widely accessible we are now offering pre-recorded lectures. These are available to view at your own convenience, from anywhere in the world.

There are also some live lectures in which students can interact with the teachers.

Our heritage spans over 30 years and enjoys a world-renowned reputation for the highest level of teaching.

Course Structure - Overview:

This is a three-year part-time course, that will provide you with all the skills, knowledge and training you need to become a fully qualified, professional Homoeopath.

Learn how to implement Miasm in your prescription for an effective outcome.

Recorded Sessions (each session is six hours):

Each academic year consists of:

– Each year consists of 18 days of progressive core curriculum learning (approximately 108 hours).

– Four winter seminars (approximately 24 hours).

– Two days of cases recorded in Kolkata, India, demonstrating the depth and scope of Homoeopathy in serious pathology (approximately 12 hours).

Live Interactive Sessions (each session is six hours):

Each academic year consists of:

  • Three scheduled interactive live sessions are transmitted via video link in real time and during which, interaction with teachers and other students is encouraged to maximise this learning opportunity (approximately 18 hours).
  • Clinical Experience- Six live clinics each year- An integral part of learning is clinical experience which is an opportunity to learn the practical prescribing with tutors and patient present:
    Six live clinic days, which are an integral part of learning. The clinic days have no less than 10 live patients per day. (Approximately 36 hours).
