Students attending a recognised homeopathic college are welcome to apply for student membership of the NZCH.
There are excellent opportunities to study homeopathy in New Zealand with three New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) accredited colleges offering training in homeopathy.
These are the Bay of Plenty College of Homeopathy, which has faculties in Tauranga, Auckland and Christchurch; the Wellington College of Homeopathy; and the South Pacific College of Natural Therapies in Auckland.
The Bay of Plenty College of Homeopathy's Auckland faculty offers New Zealand's first and only diploma courses in animal-related homeopathy.
Students studying at some of these faculties are eligible for student loans and other Government funding, so confirm this with the college concerned.
