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.

NEW FOR JANUARY 2021 : Access to Trichology, Foundation level course - Enrolment now closed!

Enrolment for our new short course launching in January 2021 is now closed.

This will be a 6-month course, which will be a compulsory pre-cursor to the two-year course.  The short course will be all home-learning, with a 3-hour exam and the end.  This can be studied as a stand-alone course, with a certificate awarded at completion, however this will not qualify you to become a practising trichologist.

If you have any questions or wish to register your interest in this course please e-mail education@trichologists.org.uk

 To receive information about the January 2022 intake, please complete the contact form, link on the right.

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.  Clinical training sessions in London are a compulsory part  of the course.

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).

Due to the impact of COVID 19 we have invested in remote working platforms and are looking to offer more Webinar based education and possible block clinical training days to limit travel for our Students.  As we develop this new way of providing education we will provide regular updates to our existing and prospective students.
