It is an exciting time to study Traditional Chinese Medicine with the Acupuncture Foundation Ireland. We have been successfully training professional acupuncturists since 1987. Our approach is centred on a hands-on and clinical approach to education - we emphasize clinical training and hands-on skill building.
We are committed to widening access to professional training and higher education by providing blocked taught and clinical sessions, supported by e-learning so that participants can gain a professional qualification while working and caring for their families. We encourage participation by mature students who may not have had the opportunity previously to enter higher education.

I did my professional acupuncture training with the AFI Ireland in Dublin and my experience has been outstanding. The lecturers are superb, very knowledgeable and skilled. I would happily recommend the college to anyone wanting to study Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
