You'll need to get a qualification that is recognised by one of the professional organisations for naturopathy.
The General Council and Register of Naturopaths (GCRN) is a professional body for naturopathy and recommends that courses should last at least three years, should involve attendance and not be done by distance learning.
The GCRN accredits the Diploma in Naturopathy offered by the British College of Osteopathic Medicine.
The College of Naturopathic Medicine also offers a Diploma in Naturopathy. Graduates can also join the GRCN through the non-accredited route.
You should check how the course is delivered and how much of the course involves clinical placements.
You'll usually need:
- 3 A levels (with at least two in science-based subjects)
