Studying acupuncture opens your horizons

Since 1990 the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB) has been accrediting degree-level programmes in Acupuncture in order to ensure that new practitioners are worthy to join the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC).

On behalf of the BAcC, the BAAB fosters and monitors high quality educational standards, so that the general public can be assured that all new graduates from BAAB-accredited acupuncture programmes are knowledgeable, reflective, competent and safe practitioners. In 1990 there were only a few colleges offering a professional acupuncturist qualification, but in 2012 there were 15 teaching institutions running acupuncture programmes which have either been fully accredited by the BAAB or are in the process of becoming so.
