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, phone and video calls, as well as clinical internships.

In our experience, the best way to learn material is by observing the application. This will allow students to gain the experience they need to work on clients, applying the methods in the way they have understood. 

Our institute is based out of a wellness center, giving students the added advantage to meet their instructors individually and learn to care for real clients, in an actual environment. This internship puts students miles ahead once they begin their careers. 

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.

Graduating

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.
