Acupuncture Foundation Graduate Testimonials
"I did my professional acupuncture training with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland and my experience has been outstanding. The lecturers are superb, very knowledgeable and skilled. It was the only Acupuncture College in Ireland with expert Chinese lecturers and clinicians. They share their clinical experiences with students and make the learning material understandable. I learned a lot from them and now have a busy practice, where I am able to treat my patients with confidence and provide an excellent treatment. I would happily recommend the college to anyone wanting to study Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine."

"I completed my training with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland in July 2006 and would highly recommend the course. During this three year course I feel I gained the knowledge,skills and practical experience to enable me to become a competent practitioner of acupuncture. After thirty six years professional experience in the field of nursing and midwifery I now enjoy running a busy acupuncture clinic which gives me tremendous job satisfaction. I would not hesitate in recommending this course to anyone considering a future in acupuncture."
"Changing career is a big step for everybody. I chose to study Chinese Medicine with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland, and it was most definitely the right choice. Over my three years of studies I was guided by wonderful teachers and excellent clinicians who shared their extensive knowledge of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and made what could have been difficult concepts easy to understand. I found the course to be very professional and intensive but the student support is excellent and really helped me in my studies. From the first session I found my confidence growing easily thanks to the detailed introduction and breakdown of Chinese Medicine Theory and the practical, hands on skills sessions; while the online learning further supported my understanding of Chinese Medicine Theory. The fact that I was able to work while studying was a major plus for me. One of the most exciting things for me was the post graduate clinical experience placement with Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine and affiliated teaching hospitals. This really helped my confidence in my practice and it is something I would definitely recommend. I discovered a love of studying Chinese Medicine and as a result am currently studying for my Masters degree in Chinese Medicine. I would strongly recommend the Acupuncture Foundation for anyone thinking of studying Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine."

"I trained with the Acupuncture Foundation between 2000 - 2003, and concluded the course with 5 weeks work experience with the Acupuncture Foundation Clinical Placement Programme in Nanjing, China. The tutors each year were excellent, most of which were Chinese and experts in their fields. I found the staff and mentors within the Acupuncture Foundation very hepful throughout the course, and afterwards, giving me the confidence to set up as a practitioner."
