One Year - Degree Conversion Course

Convert Your Homeopathic Qualification to a BSc (Hons) Degree

In Partnership with

What is the One Year – Degree Conversion Course?

In partnership with Middlesex University, London, the CHE Degree Conversion Course offers qualified homeopaths the opportunity to convert their current professional homeopathy qualification into a BSc (Hons) Homeopathy Degree in one year.

Who is it for?

This is for all qualified homeopaths who want to convert their current professional homeopathic qualification into a BSc (Hons) degree. For many practitioners their qualification was awarded by an independent school that may no longer exist or is only recognised in the country or state in which they live or practice. A BSc (Hons) degree from a British university is a worldwide recognised qualification. Also, many homeopaths have never studied for or obtained a degree and therefore this gives them an opportunity to do so in a subject that they are experienced in and passionate about.

How does the One Year – Degree conversion Course work? What is the schedule?

This one-year online part-time course will be attended by students via our online portal and classroom. The lectures will be live-streamed from London, one weekend per month from September 2020 to June 2021. It can be viewed via any device, such as your computer, laptop, tablet, phone or TV. If you are unable to attend any of the lectures, they are recorded and you will have unlimited access after the weekend.

Students will be required to complete four modules of the BSc (Hons) programme at CHE:-

Module 1: Research Methods
Module 2: Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology & Disease III
Module 3: Advanced Materia Medica & Treatment Management
Module 4: Proposition Module

See below for further information on the syllabus

What are the Assessments?

Each module has two assessments during the year and all assessments are written coursework. You will receive specific and detailed marking criteria for each piece of work that you are given. There is a rigorous marking process in place where your work will be double marked and a sample will be sent to an external examiner.

What support is there for the students?

We have an academic team that will support you during the course and in between the course weekends with online tutorials or one-to-one support. We understand that many students may have been out of education for a considerable number of years. We offer all students access to a study skills workshop before the start of the course, which is a good introductory session for anyone re-entering education after a break.

We also offer pastoral care for any student on the course who is having personal issues. This is a free and completely confidential service.

What qualification will I receive?

Upon completing the one year course and after completing and passing all of the course work you will receive the BSc(Hons) Homeopathy from Middlesex University, London.

Course Testimonials

The course exceeded my expectations, not just the enjoyment, standard of training and calibre of lecturers, but most importantly the benefits to my Practice. I graduated with such clarity, and it made a significant difference to my analysis and prescribing skills, increasing my confidence considerably.

Laureen Finney BSc (Hons) Homeopathy Northern Ireland

The Degree conversion course at CHE was an immense joy alongside being a challenge… The CHE teachers bring a wealth of experience and support – they are great at helping those who have been away from academia. I recommend this course to all homeopathic practitioners who wish to further their understanding of the theory and praxis of homeopathy.

Syllabus

Module 1: Research Methods


This module aims to promote the development of additional skills associated with research, beginning with an initial focus on supporting students, as they build confidence performing relevant searches in workshop sessions. It encourages students to then develop techniques to review and critically evaluate sources identified through searches and gain an appreciation of how this impacts homeopathy in practice.

This module provides an overview of research methods utilised within both the conventional scientific paradigm and CAM, emphasising how these are evolving within homeopathy in order to assess various aspects of this system of medicine. It introduces students to health-related outcome measures and how these relate to the research question posed. Ethical considerations of performing research are highlighted throughout the module. The module aims to promote discussion on homeopathic provings, focusing on the relationship between this specialist research method and the wider evidence base for homeopathy. It also aims to explore current scientific thinking about proposed mechanisms of remedy action and other developing theories in relation to homeopathy.

 

Module 2: Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology & Disease III


This module explores in depth some of the more common and serious pathologies likely to be encountered as practitioners. In addition, it aims to critically explore medical models of these pathologies in the light of homeopathic thinking and students are encouraged to further demonstrate an ability to carry out differential diagnosis. Symptoms associated with the pathologies studied in this module are evaluated and the significance used to formulate a hypothesis about a person’s probable prognosis. The aim is to formulate an action plan for homeopathic treatment that reflects and considers any medical treatment or management the patient is receiving, with students encouraged to understand the adverse effects of allopathic treatments and consider how, as practitioners, they will be able to support patients.

In this module, we consider and appraise limits of homeopathic treatment so that it brings awareness of when it might be appropriate to refer a patient to another practitioner or suggest some other adjunctive treatment.

 

Module 3: Advanced Materia Medica & Treatment Management


This module continues the development and expansion of students’ knowledge of Materia Medica and therapeutics. The student will research new methods of generating and interpreting Materia Medica and build on the knowledge of therapeutic remedies and their effect on specific disease patterns gained in earlier modules. Students will also gain effective expertise in the prescribing of Tautopathy, Nosodes and Sarcodes to further develop the range of approaches available to them in practice. The module aims to critically appraise Materia Medica with reference to specific psychological conditions.

The aim of this module is to enable the student to build on their casework and patient treatment skills. Students will further reflect on a patient’s reaction to a prescription and to evaluate the case process in order to generate the next step in treatment and develop a sense of prognosis and treatment management. They will estimate the effect of allopathic drugs on the patient and design an approach to the case within the context of homeopathic methodologies.

In this way students will develop the necessary expertise in order to critically appraise a patient’s case and construct the appropriate course of treatment, giving due consideration to all potential confounding factors and/or complexities and homeopathic methodologies available: this module goes beyond the case analysis tools and Materia Medica knowledge students have gained in previous modules and synthesizes them into a contemporary “toolbox” ready to face the real-world challenges that patients may bring.


Module 4: Proposition Module

This module aims to apply and advance skills, knowledge and understanding both from the Homeopathic Philosophy and the Research Methods modules and to consolidate learning and practice from other modules. In particular, this module provides students with a challenging opportunity to demonstrate their advanced skills regarding self-directed research, the appropriate and selective use of computer-based literature search tools, critical appraisal skills and well-developed writing and word-processing abilities, clinical practice skills as well as planning and time management strategies.

The module aims to provide an opportunity for students to systematically and creatively explore issues related to research, clinical practice, homeopathic and medical literature, research ethics and the research process itself. It aims to encourage a focused approach to research, to develop original thinking and research-mindedness from various research paradigms. This module involves experiential learning but without gaining experience in the field or laboratory and reflects the growing need for homeopathic practitioners to be research-capable within an increasingly evidence-based healthcare sector.
