“I discovered the effectiveness of natural medicine after my children were born and suddenly found my way of making a difference in this world. I researched the various study options available and was recommended the Bachelor of Natural Medicine at SPCNM. But before I embarked on committing to a degree, I wanted to make sure that this was something I really wanted to do and was able to do. I hadn’t studied for over ten years and did not have a background in science. So, enrolling in the New Zealand Certificate in Study and Preparation was the perfect way to ease my concerns and prepare me for the degree.
The courses helped me refresh my essay writing, research and computer skills, and expose me to new effective study techniques and research programmes. The introduction to the science of natural medicine was at a pace and level of understanding that gave me the confidence to continue with the degree, without worrying about keeping up with the curriculum. The certificate also allowed time to get used to online learning, get familiar with Moodle, different assignment styles, and academic referencing. As soon as I started the degree, I was able to hit the ground running.
I would highly recommend this certificate due to its high level of academic integrity, supportive staff, and ability to get you excited about embarking on the path to a career in natural health!”
