"Our sole vocation is to restore the sick to health as rapidly, gently and permanently as possible, using easily understood principles like that of like curing like."
Samuel Hahnemann (1755 - 1843), who formulated the laws of modern homoeopathy.

The homeopathy professional 4 year training course consists of ten weekends each academic year – from September to June inclusive. Homeopathy CoursesIn addition, there is a considerable degree of directed, home based study (about 12-15 hours a week) in the form of reading, research and written assignments, and (in the final year) a project.

We monitor your work throughout the course by a programme of continuous assessment, Materia Medica tests and constructive feedback from your individual tutor or supervisor.

Anyone who has the time to study homeopathy and wants to know more can apply for an interview and sit in on some of our lectures. Interviews are held throughout the year. They are friendly and informal. If you have passion and commitment you should do well. We welcome students from all backgrounds.

The Academic work

Classes are small and informal, with plenty of time for debate, discussion and individual attention. Every student is allocated a personal tutor who will offer encouragement, guidance and support throughout the course – no-one is left to work in isolation.

Homeopathy CoursesThe main areas of study include Materia Medica (our homoeopathic remedies) and the principles and philosophy of homoeopathy and natural healing. Various complementary disciplines aimed at broadening the perception and understanding of natural healing are also covered.

The student is taught the gentle art of case-taking, and how to prescribe for both acute and chronic conditions. In the second and third years, a thorough grounding is also given in the medical sciences of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and their relationship to homoeopathic practice, in order to further understand health and the process of disease.

The Practical work

After the completion of the first year, you will be required to make arrangements with local homoeopaths to sit in with them and observe case-taking. This is an invaluable and traditional part of the learning process that complements the academic work of the classroom.

Homeopathy CoursesIn the final two years of the course, there is a much greater emphasis on clinical work. You will be allocated an in-house supervisor, to whom you will bring your cases, and will be guided in the practical skills of case-taking and their management.

We also run a low-cost homeopathy clinic in Chichester where students will gain experience in a supervised setting. This clinic is open to the public.

These two systems in tandem, save students considerable time and expense whilst supporting them as they begin to put their knowledge into practice.


On successful completion of the four year course you will be awarded the qualification of Licentiate of the South Downs School of Homoeopathy (SDSHom). This entitles you to set up in practice as a professional homoeopath.

Graduates of the school are also encouraged to apply for registration, either with The Society of Homeopaths (RSHom) or with The Alliance of Registered Homeopaths (MARH)
