Fees & Administration

The fee for the full Discovering Herbal Medicine course is £700 but we often run discounts – contact sylviemarusic@gmail.com for current information.

The course material is divided into a series of twelve interrelated Modules, each dealing with a different body system, the illnesses that afflict it and the herbs used for their treatment. Progress through the Course is divided into four Stages, which can be purchased individually for £185.

The Modules each have 3 quizzes: Anatomy and Physiology, Pathology and Diagnosis and Materia Medica. The quizzes have multiple choice answers and the pass mark for each is 65%. Each Module has 6 :Lessons, covering herbal philosophy, human biology, medicine, herbal medicine and home pharmacy. Also. as an aid to study, each Module has a worksheet to highlight the most important points gained from the Lessons.

The Course can be started at any time and although designed to be taken over one year, this will vary from person to person.  Some students have completed it within 6 months. Even so, there is no need to hurry if personal circumstances intervene; registration is for an indefinite time. 

Having read the course work for a given Component, the student completes a Review consisting of questionnaires, multiple-choice questions, short essays, etc. This is then posted directly to the Course Tutor for marking and comment.

The Course can be started at any time and can be completed in one year. Even so, there is no need to hurry if personal circumstances intervene; registration can be continued for a second year without additional charge.

After the second year, studies may be further extended upon payment of an annual re-registration fee (currently £25) to cover administration costs.

“It is a comprehensive course and much thought has gone into the preparation to enable lay people to gain more understanding about maintaining health and the use of herbal medicine in the present day.”

“I really enjoyed the ‘Discovering Herbal Medicine’ course and am glad I finished with success. I am now suffering from ‘withdrawal symptoms’, so will continue to study.”
