IBMT MA Programme

The Institute is very happy to announce that plans for a Master of Arts Degree in Somatic Practices by Independent Research (top up) are being developed by the University of Chichester (subject to approval). The MA Programme will be open to IBMT graduates and will recognise the IBMT training as part of the programme. Once the course has been approved, prospective students will apply directly to the University admissions department. We will inform you through our newsletter as soon as more information is available.
