All our English and Dutch TCM-programmes have been fully accredited by the independent accreditation organisation SNRO with 200 EC according to the newest higher professional education standards (HBO). Together with our SNRO accredited Western Medicine courses this leads to a total of 240 EC. This enables our graduates to operate at a similar level as HBO bachelor graduates in the Dutch health care system as well as being able to give VAT-free health treatments.
The educational programme of Traditional Chinese Medicine at Shenzhou Open University of TCM has been accredited by the related professional associations* in the Netherlands including: NVA, NAAV, ZHONG, TCMned, LVNT, NWP and FAGT.
