?Dear Prof . Shulan Tang
I read the information in the prospectus regarding the Master degree courses and have a few questions.
With regard to the Master´s prospectus, I have a few points that I have a little bit unclear, so I would be grateful if you could clarify a bit further.
1 - Would I be eligible for the Master’s degree? I have a Degree in Chemistry in Spain (5 year degree that accounts as a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree), and then I did a PhD in the UK, also in Chemistry
2 - It is said that all students on the Master´s Degree programme are expected to be in clinical practice. Does it mean that I have to be a therapist (in clinical practice) prior to joining the course? Or when I get the knowledge from the Master? Could you please clarify?
3 - Does each credit correspond to 9 or 18 h? On page 8 section “core modules” it is stated that 1 credit equals 9 lecturing hours and in the rest of the document it seems to always say 18. Does it mean lecturing hours that I teach or that I receive? Is there any difference in terms of credit hours? It makes a big difference in hours (9 to 18 h) since I have two little girls to look after, although hopefully next year they will need less care from the parents and will be more autonomous.
4 - I understand that there are recorded lectures that I can watch at any time, but is it possible to agree times for the e-learning sessions with lecturers? I am not sure if most of the speakers are in china, but if so, with the time difference it might be difficult to set a convenient time for both.
Thank you for your help.
!Dear Ibone , Nice to talk to you .
I am answering some of your questions regarding the Masters Degree Course in Chinese Medicine . 1, As you have got your Master and PhD degree in Chemistry already , you are eligible to apply for the Master degree in Chinese Medicine . Within the Master degree course , there are a lot of different specific fields of studies you can choose .
However , I would suggest that it would be much more beneficial for you to take the Acupuncture Diploma Course first and start to practice in the clinic prior to the Master’s degree course .
2, During your 3 years Master degree course , you are expected to practice at a Chinese Medicine clinic or hospital as well as studying the theory of Chinese Medicine.
3, you have to obtain 20 credits . Each subject is worth 1 credit. This contains 9 sessions , each session is 2 hours , therefore 18 hours is 1 credit .
4, Those 20 credits can be learned online by recorded lectures . Most of lecturers are in Europe . Your specific area of study will have an Europe supervisor on top of the supervisor from NJUCM . So it’s possible for you to agree a time with your Europe supervisor to have an e- learning lecturer . I hope that I have clarified your concerns .please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need further information .
Best Regards
?Dear Sir/Madam,I am very interested in TCM and Acupuncture. I wish to become a qualified TCM practitioner but have no prior experience/knowledge in the area. I would appreciate it a lot if you could kindly advise me on the following inquiries:
1) Are you running any Acupuncture Diploma courses commencing Spring 2019? If so, could you please provide the course days and further information if any?
2) Are there any upcoming open days or introductory events this month or in the next two months?
3) TCM Theory and Diagnostics and Acupuncture Diploma are being put down as two different courses in the FAQ section on your website. Is TCM Theory and Diagnostics included and being part of the Acupuncture Diploma? (all I wish to know is... Do I have to enrol to both TCM Theory and Diagnostics AND Acupuncture Diploma or just the Acupuncture Diploma before being able to study the Chinese Herbal Medicine Diploma ? )
4) Upon the completion of the Acupuncture Diploma, will I be qualified to apply for the Master's degree programme at NJUCM? ( or will I be required to gain at least 6 years of work experience in addition to the Diploma before the application? )
Thank you very much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
Many Thanks, One of your potential student 14th January 2019
