We are a leading private college based in North London offering courses in the full spectrum of Chinese medicine. As a not-for-profit organisation, we put our students first and answer to them, not shareholders.

With professional and academic recognition for all our courses, we make sure we work with only highly respected organisations, to ensure that our students have peace of mind and the best credentials available.

Because we know that nothing worth having comes easily, our personal approach means that you will feel supported all the way through your training and beyond. Our flexible courses mean that many career-changers and parents are able to pursue their dreams and can still meet their existing daily commitments.

We believe that you learn best through doing, and our hands-on approach to learning gives you all the tools you need and the confidence to use them. Clinical practice is backed up by a solid grounding in both Western and Chinese medicine, enabling our graduates to work comfortably within the wider medical profession and often to become experts in their chosen fields.

Our lecturing staff are second to none. They have trained extensively, and many are considered to be among the best in the world at what they do.

Our facilities are purpose-built to meet our students’ requirements, creating the perfect learning environment and context within which to study Chinese medicine.

As you may have gathered, we take pride in insisting on the highest quality - our world-class teaching staff, our dedicated and high-achieving students, our accrediting bodies and everyone we choose to do business with.

All this takes time, energy and money, and although our fees are high, this is for a reason. At LCTA you get what you pay for: Chinese medicine training - naturally outstanding.
