Alternative and Complementary Medicine in Australia


Australasian College of natural therapies is Australia's premier college of Complementary or Alternative Medicine located in the heart of Sydney.  ACNT offers over 80 natural therapy and natural beauty therapy courses including courses in naturopathy, herbal medicine, massage therapy, bodywork, reflexology, aromatherapy and many more. As one of the largest, internationally accredited natural therapy or complementary medicine colleges in the world, Australasian College of Natural Therapies is proud to be the preferred college of the natural therapies profession in Australia..

 In 2002, ACNT was host to hundreds of international students, from countries as diverse as Canada, the US, England, South Africa, Thailand, India, Israel, New Zealand, Sweden, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Singapore.

In discussions with international students here at Australasian College we have discovered that some of the reasons why students come to live and study with us in Australia include:

• ACNT has superior academic programmes that are highly regarded around the world by professional organisations, universities and employers

• ACNT boasts a wide range of courses that allow students to upgrade in small steps from one qualification to another

• ACNT has a diverse range of international students and it's very easy to make friends with people from a student's home country or other countries

• ACNT's links with hospitals, universities and industry organisations

Australia is a very desirable place to study due to the comfortable climate, relaxed lifestyle, friendly people, multicultural society, relatively low cost of living, personal safety and wide variety of sporting, cultural, sightseeing and recreational activities that are available

• Tuition conducted in the English language

Australasian College has always taken pride in our leadership role in the natural health education industry. As the preferred institution for the natural therapies profession, you might care to note some of the College's firsts in the industry:

• ACNT offers Australia's first practitioner-based Naturopathy degree programme (in collaboration with the University of New England)

• ACNT is a founding member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society
