Here are some FAQ’s on ENROLMENT:
1) How do I enrol in the Professional Naturopathic courses online?
The enrolment process is really quite simple. Choose the course that you wish to take from the list of courses available, place into the shopping cart, checkout and pay online.
We will send your username and password usually the same day so that you can access the Moodle educational platform and begin your studies.
2) Is there an Application Fee?
There is no application fee – the prices shown for each course is final.
3) Is being fluent in the English language a prerequisite to acceptance?
Generally yes, as all the courses are conducted in English. This mainly applies to written English, as we are aware that many students working as health professionals in their own country will be speaking in their own language. We do not stipulate passing English exams but leave it to the discretion of the student to decide whether their level of English is sufficient to cope with the course materials.

3) If I want to take a degree in Naturopathy, how can I do this?
The Da Vinci Institute does not award degrees per se, only Professional Naturopathic Courses recognised by the The Human Resource Development Authority (HRDA) of Cyprus (Reg. no: K000700).
However, we do affiliate and work with the University of America (Curacuo and USA) who also recognise our courses and students can register with them to take Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degrees in Naturopathy.
Simply write to us at admin@collegenaturalmedicine and we will help you through the process.
4) If I take a couple of your Professional Naturopathic Courses and then decide to continue with the degree course, would it be possible to transfer these over?
Basically yes, but we would need to validate this with the University of America so that the courses you have taken tally with their specific degree curriculum.
Once the courses you have taken are assessed, then the University of America will give the go-ahead for these to be transferred to their degree course.
5) What type of Professional Naturopathic courses can I choose from?
There are over 40 Professional Naturopathic Courses available – you can choose any of these and review these in detail under PROFESSIONAL NATUROPATHIC COURSES.

7) Are there assignments and final exams required for the Professional Naturopathic courses?
Yes, after each lesson there are normally 10 assignment questions that are taken online and are timed. At the end of each course there is also a final exam that is taken online and is again timed. All the scores from the various lessons are recorded in your personal grade book and will count towards your final grade. The certificate will be sent to your home address.
