Admission and Fees


Admissions Policy

The Admission and Fees Policy at the Da Vinci Institute of Holistic Medicine is fairly straight forward – we aim to increase the diversity of our student population: we believe that diversity is educationally as well as socially desirable in a civilised society, enriching the educational experience for all.

We therefore seek to attract a wide range of applicants from different social, cultural and educational backgrounds who can demonstrate the academic ability and the skills required to succeed in their chosen studies. We actively encourage applications from students from all groups who are currently under-represented in higher education and who cannot pay the average fees of major universities.

The Da Vinci Institute of Holistic Medicine aims to offer clear advice and guidance to prospective applicants to enable them to make informed choices and to apply to programmes appropriate to their interests, academic qualifications and potential.

Admissions Procedure

The admission and fees policy is fairly simple and straightforward.  Here are the basic steps that all students need to follow:

  1. Identify what degree you are eligible to pursue based on previous education. School leavers would apply for the Bachelor’s degree, university graduates with an existing Bachelor’s degree can apply for the Master’s degree and graduates with an existing Master’s degree can apply for a Doctoral degree. In addition, Medical doctors, Chiropractors and Osteopaths can apply directly for the Doctoral degree, but will be assessed based on the courses they have already covered. Check our Admission and Fees policy.
  2. Complete the Application Form online which is found under the “Enrolments” tab, on the Admissions and Fees page. Please make certain that you have scanned and saved your passport, C.V. or resume, transcripts of all diplomas and degrees as well as the Certificates of these, as well as a “Personal Statement” stating why you are applying and what is your motivation to study Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine. Copy and paste these into the online Application Form and upload all the documents required and submit.
  3. Once we receive your submitted application, we will process this and prepare an Enrolment Agreement which will state all the courses you would be required to complete for the chosen degree, as well as any exemptions you would have received based on previous education.
  4. A brief Skype or phone interview may be requested from certain students to clarify certain aspects of their application.
  5. Once you receive the Enrolment Agreement, you may request amendments, or sign and return to us.
  6. Once we receive your signed Enrolment Agreement, you would be officially accepted by the Da Vinci Institute of Holistic Medicine.
  7. We will contact you soon thereafter with an official acceptance letter, with details for paying the Registration Fee (200 Euros), along with the required deposit for the chosen degree – see Admission and Fees policy.
  8. Once payment clears, we will send details on how to enrol for your first courses so that you may begin your exciting educational journey.

 

Course Fees

After reviewing your Enrolment Agreement detailing the courses and credits that you would be required to complete for your Degree, then calculating costs is easy.

Here are the PER CREDIT costs for the different degrees – please note that the costs are calculated below for the MAXIMUM number of credits for students NOT receiving any exemption credits – for those receiving exemptions the overall cost of the degree will drop:

DEGREE COST PER US CREDIT TOTAL CREDITS REQUIRED TOTAL COST
Bachelors € 70 190 €13,300
Masters € 130 50 €6,500
Doctoral € 140 100 €14,000

Payment of Fees

There are a number of ways to pay in order to make payment easy and seamless. Here are some of the choices:

  • PAY-AS-YOU-GO

Simply pay for each course as you take them – pay-as-you-go! Each course will have a variable price depending on the number of credits it is worth. Simple payment with your credit card, PayPal or bank transfer (upon request).

  • PAY EACH COURSE BY INSTALMENT

It is also possible to pay for each course by 3 monthly instalments using PayPal or credit or debit card.

  • MONTHLY INSTALMENT PAYMENTS

Students can also set up a standing order with their bank to pay for ALL their courses on a monthly basis. If this payment method is of interest, we will work out the monthly payments for each student depending on the type of degree and the number of credits required. Once you know the amount, then it is easy to set up a standing order via your bank.
