A dedicated tutor will offer support and guidance, while an online forum will connect you to likeminded students on your course.
The student experience
Stonebridge graduate Ray Barclay worked as a chef and an upholsterer, before settling on IT as a career path. Keen to retire after many years in the industry, he began to investigate Bowen therapy in 2016, but explains, “A lack of medical knowledge was my main challenge.”
Ray started Stonebridge’s Anatomy and Physiology course, finding that because “the programme is so flexible, it was quite easy to fit it in around my job.” He credits the qualification with “showing me that there is so much more to the body.”
Distance learning gave Ray the chance to train, while putting plans in place to leave the IT sector. He is now set to start a new role as a Bowen therapist, which he hopes will be “far more rewarding than finding and fixing a bug in software.”
