CNM Diploma Courses

Over the years the CNM Academic Board has developed a number of Diploma courses. These courses are constantly updated to meet the needs of our students and offer latest developments in their field.

The first course for all students, regardless whether they study Naturopathic Nutrition, specialise in Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture or Homeopathy, is Biomedicine (Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology). Afterwhich, Naturopathic Nutrition students continue on to study Nutrition whilst Herbal, Acupuncture and Homeopathy students will begin studying Naturopathy along their chosen specialty.

The College of Naturopathic Medicine is the UK’s leading training provider in a range of Natural Therapies with colleges in London, Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh and Manchester.

Due to CNM’s high academic standards, CNM courses are accredited in many countries across Europe and Internationally.
