How To Enrol

Diploma in Holistic Aromatherapy 2018-20

Application requirements

Applicants are considered on their merit with an emphasis on their general aptitude, academic qualifications, life experience , an empathic and caring disposition and their maturity. The minimum age for applicants is 18 years old, with no maximum age.

A qualification in Anatomy and Physiology Level 3/4 is a prerequisite for enrolment on the Diploma in Holistic Aromatherapy course. The Yorkshire School provides excellent professional training in Anatomy and Physiology by distance learning with Josie McMaster. This training can be started immediately and it is strongly recommended that you complete as much as possible of the A and P by the start of the full Diploma in Holistic Aromatherapy course in Sept 2018. We realise though that, for late enrolments, this may not always be possible, so a suitable timeframe will be mutually agreed upon with the School for the exam, which is pencilled in for Jan 2019.

If you are a trained Nurse, or similar, and/or have any existing qualifications in Anatomy and Physiology (that are current and up to date), this may be taken into consideration and you may not need to do any further training in this subject. We would need a copy of your training certificates.

Much of the communication throughout the course will be by email. Access to a personal computer, access to the Internet and basic computer skills are necessary to maintain a clear communication channel and produce the course work effectively.

If you have any questions or simply ‘wish to talk things through,’ please don’t hesitate to contact the School Principal Emmalene Katayama directly by email to or call 07951 011423 / 01484 384297.
