What to expect

The ANIM course is a correspondence based course. This enables the student to learn the course materials at their own pace. The course is taught via email by sending all word and pdf documents. 

Upon completing all the course requirements, the graduate will receive a Diploma as a Naturopath N.D. This allows our graduates to be recognized as health care professionals who can issue insurance receipts to their clients. 

Acceptance to the course

In order to be considered for the N.D program, you must have a High School Diploma. In addition, you must also include a one page letter of intent, explaining why you would like to become a Naturopath N.D. The letter of intent will be reviewed by our administration before granting admission.

Candidates with a degree in health science may be exempt from certain courses in our curriculum, subject to evaluation.


The passing grade at ANIM is 85%.

The program is advanced with some of the best methods in the industry, as such we want to make sure all students have learned to utilize these methods well and understand them thoroughly.

Should a student fail to achieve a minimum of 85% in any of the modules, they will be granted the opportunity to rewrite the exams in order to achieve a passing grade and move on to the next modules.
