Herbalism Course Feedback

Amanda-Jane Turner
Queensland, Australia

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course that I commenced in January this year, I am ecstatic that I have passed, and have now enrolled for the Advanced Diploma in Herbalism.

I have only positive feedback for your institution, I work full time and read through course work and additional study on my train commutes to and from work. The PDFs are structured in a clear and concise way so that reading them online from my ipad is easy, and I can easily assimilate the information as it has been written very well.

I have many qualifications for a variety of disciplines from many institutions, and yet this one was by far the ‘nicest’ to do, the fact that one may do the course work in their own time frame is essential when one works full time, and being able to email assignments instead of sending hard copies in the mail, makes it so affordable as well.
I have been recommending the School of Natural Health Sciences to everybody I know, as a genuine higher learning body that really helps the students and encourages them to excel.

Please say thank you to the exceptionally talented individual who wrote your Herbalism course. I can’t stop reading it! It’s Saturday night and all I want to do is more herbs. Wishing I had done tutored now as so into it. On a diploma package so loving it so far!

I just wanted to say thank you to the school and to my tutor, Richard, for being there during my first course of study, it was wonderful to get the feedback and comments. I’ve always dreamed of being a Herbalist as it has always been a passion of mine and thanks to the School of Natural Health Sciences this is now a very real dream come true.

I’m enjoying my other courses as well and think that the service you provide is fantastic. I can’t wait to finish the courses I am currently studying and moving on to new ones because the range is the best I’ve seen anywhere!
