Why we are special

Here are just 11 of the reasons why so many people choose to study with BSY Group:

  1. The UK’s number one Complementary Therapy College

    BSY is proud to be the UK’s number one Complementary Therapy College. Over the years we have helped many people study fascinating subjects so they can start a new career, develop their existing career, improve their wellbeing or simply study for pleasure.

  2. 70+ years’ experience

    BSY was established in 1946. Since then we have grown considerably, whilst staying true to our ethos of quality courses from dedicated and caring professionals. We specialise in courses which you can conveniently study at home, with helpful guidance and encouragement available from our friendly and experienced tutors.

  3. Qualifications and levels to suit your needs

    You can study at a level that suits you.
    In addition to gaining BSY qualifications, some courses also grant ABC or OCN certification of achievement*. This indicates that the course measurable learning outcomes have been benchmarked at the appropriate Level using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework level descriptors.
    · Practitioner level
    · Professional Development level
    · Personal Achievement level

  4. Quality accreditations

    We are proud of the accreditations we have achieved. They show that your interests are protected by independent bodies that ensure you receive training to the appropriate standard.

  5. National awards for many courses

    Successfully completing an OCN graded course enables you to gain additional recognition for the skills you have learnt*. OCN Credit4Learning credits are also acceptable as a means of entry to further education and university education. BSY is approved and licensed as an ABC Quality Licence Scheme (QLS) Provider. This can enable you to gain formal recognition from a national awarding organisation for your studies, benchmarked at the appropriate level. ABC accreditation gives the additional assurance that the content of a training course is of a high standard and meets the rigorous requirements of a national awarding organisation*.

  6. Study from the comfort of your own home

    Our courses have been specifically created to make studying convenient as well as enjoyable. You can study your course at home or wherever else you wish, fitting it around your family, job and other commitments. Courses are divided into clear and straightforward lessons that aim to make learning convenient, easy and enjoyable.

  7. Learn in your own time, at your own pace

    There are no time limits with BSY courses so you can start when you’re ready. Our easy to understand lessons then enable you to progress at a pace and a time that suits you. You will be able to review the progress you make, from studying the theory to putting it into practice, as part of our supported process of professional development. Your final assessment is specially designed for you to take on your own, at home, and at a date and time that suit you best.

  8. Tutors dedicated to your success

    Our friendly tutors can help you get the maximum benefit from your studies. They can give you prompt, expert feedback, guidance and friendly encouragement when you complete each lesson – allowing you to master each step before moving on to the next.
    In addition, throughout your course and afterwards, your tutor can answer your questions by phone, email, or fax and give you supportive feedback on reflective journals.

  9. Practical training is available with some courses

    Our practical training gives you an opportunity to learn directly from an experienced tutor with specialist skills. One or two days’ practical training is available with some courses for a small additional fee.

  10. Professional liability insurance for Practitioners

    Depending upon which course you successfully complete, you may be eligible for professional liability insurance – which protects both practitioners and their clients’ interests.

  11. Helpful payment options
