Trichology Training

The Institute of Trichologists provides a two-year distance learning course backed by clinical practice. Trichologists are medically trained in areas pertaining to the health of the hair and scalp.

The Two Year Course in Trichology

Enrolment for September 2019 is now full, with a full reserve list. To receive information about September 2020 intake please complete the contact form.

The Institute's course is academic and scientific in nature and requires a positive and continuing commitment to the course by the student.  The progress, aptitude and attitude of each student will be closely monitored throughout the course. 

Distance Learning

The course is delivered mainly by home-based distance learning and is entirely self-contained. That is to say students are not expected to have to purchase additional books or teaching materials; all of the written and academic material you need for the course is contained in the books, learning modules and tutor handouts supplied by the Institute. 

Although the course requires great commitment and motivation on the part  of the student, it is not intended to be a full-time course. Almost all Institute students are mature, and most are also in full-time employment or undertaking family commitments and responsibilities (in some cases both). 

The downloadable prospectus (see button at right-hand side of this page) provides full information on the Institute's two-year training course in Trichology.
