Welcome to the Confucius Institute for Traditional Chinese Medicine at London South Bank University (LSBU) the world's first Confucius Institute for Traditional Chinese Medicine and Confucius Institute of the Year Award Winner 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. LSBU's Confucius Institute is now a Model Confucius Institute, the very first in the UK.
This is a joint initiative with Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine, Harbin Normal University and the Office of Chinese Language Council International, China (OCLCI, commonly known as Hanban). The Confucius Institute is all about promoting Chinese culture with a specific focus on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese Wellbeing. We run classes, workshops and events to promote traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese wellbeing for all ages.
Our Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture course will give you the skills you need to be an acupuncturist. This degree course established in acupuncture is run in conjunction with the award winning Confucius Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine (CITCM). This course covers the science and art of acupuncture drawing on thousands of years of traditional experience.
Alongside learning about the historical tradition you will learn about the scientific study of acupuncture. You'll also have the chance to apply for an extended clinical placement in a Chinese hospital, which will include studying at our partner institution, Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine. For this, there's a scholarship funded through our CITCM which covers tuition fees and accommodation.
