A detailed overview of this prestigious trichology course

As confirmed 07-08-2018

The College warmly welcomes English speaking candidates world-wide who seek to undertake a high academic level Diploma course in Trichology.

Introduction
There is considerable demand for reliable professional advice and accurate diagnosis of hair and scalp diseases / conditions.
The para-medical / scientific discipline of trichology has been a much misunderstood area of health care but because the law does not protect the profession anyone can claim to be a trichologist.
Trichology was established in London in 1902 as an adjunct to the barber shop but the lack of good training during the ensuing century led to its isolation with practitioners  being understandably labelled as charlatans posturing in a science way beyond their understanding.
TTS Distance Learning College has sought to change that.  Many of Its graduates hail from medical and varied scientific backgrounds –  they become well educated in this specialised discipline.  Todays graduates have gained the respect of journalists worldwide, the legal profession through the provision of Expert Witness Report writing, surgeries, the cosmetics industry, many  operate respected clinics.
Having read though this extensive overview, we would invite the prospective candidate to contact us to arrange a one-to-one meeting with our Head of College Prof. B Stevens (an international lecturer in Trichology and an accredited Expert Witness) to discuss any aspirations.  

The courses:
The College has been providing high academic level distance learning courses in Trichology (the science of Human Scalp & Hair in Health, Disease and Distress) for 18 years to determined tenacious students worldwide who possess a command of the English language.  The College is managed by a Committee. The current Head of College is Professor B. Stevens a kindly helpful man who has devoted his life to trichology.     

The Diploma courses + the essential practical element are demanding for every Candidate. Gaining the TTS Diploma (LTTS Licentiate of The Trichological Society) will require determination and tenacity.  Each candidate will be assigned a College appointed Mentor to whom any problems, difficulties or other questions may be addressed.

The courses are  based on ‘Research  Learning’  which involves reading up from various sources but primarily the recommended text books (which albeit expensive are an essential acquisition for the well qualified trichologist’s library), writing up (essentially in the candidates own words) and submitting academic standard essays for each topic in the syllabus (see below).  There is also a strong practical element to these courses which is overviewed elsewhere herein.

Curriculum
The published overview includes the curriculum and current syllabus, but as hair science is an area of continuing research and development, updates, additions and changes may occur at any time which may inadvertently extend the course nominally and therefore inculcate modest additional costs for the Candidate. The Candidate is therefore urged to visit these pages regularly.

The coursework (published below) if rigorously adhered to should lead to graduation as a trichologist within the parameters of TTS (The Trichological Society) within the time frame given herein.  Graduates will be elected to Licentiateship and be entitled to use the post-nominal letters LTTS.  Graduates can pay reasonable annual subscriptions to TTS to gain a listing on its portal (www.hairscientists.org).

These part-time courses are expected to take 2 or 3 years depending upon individual circumstances. It must be accepted that  courses will be extended if:
a)  topics are added to the syllabus  (not a frequent occurrence).
b)  essays are not submitted.
c)  essays are submitted late.
d)  essays are rejected by our independent external medical and scientific examiners and require rewriting (unusual).

The courses are majorly academic (conducted from a personal computer) with a practical element (currently available in London).

The Trichological Society does not permit candidates who are not medical doctors to open clinics or otherwise practice as hair experts  until qualified. Any infringement of this regulation will terminate the candidature (see https://www.hairscientists.org/about-tts/constitution paragraph 15.5).

The 2 and 3 year course options: 

           

             The 2 year course (for candidates who hold an appropriate scientific degree – interview usually required). 

At the chosen inception date each Candidate must have satisfied herself/himself that this is the right course to pursue.
Each Candidate contracts for two calendar years, during which to research, write up and submit 30 essays per annum at the steady rate of 3 per month (none during the vacation months of  December or August).  The necessary deadlines for submissions are 7th and 21st days of the month (no exceptions can be made). Back-filling is not permitted so any shortfall will extend the course.
Each of the 60 + essays in the syllabus must have attracted a credit from the examiners to entitle the Candidate to enter the end of course examination (usually held during early May in London).

Fees
include the costs of marking / correcting the candidate’s essays by independent external qualified medical and scientific examiners.
The current annual fee charged by the College =  £3600 per calendar year (12 months).  This may be paid monthly (i.e. 12 x £300) by Bankers Order or Paypal. Payments must be received by the College on the 16th day of the month in advance.

Additional charges
for clinical tutorials/experience are paid to the clinical practice attended.  This is currently £100 per day (we recommend up to 10 days per year).  A fee of £200 per day is charged by Professor B Stevens for tutorials (one to two candidates only per session).
Overseas Candidates will be required to visit London for 4-5 days during each year of study. Charges are currently £100 per day.   A fee of £200 per day is charged by Professor B Stevens for one-to-one tutorials.

Other expenses
include the purchase of textbooks (listed below). These are a reference necessity for any worthy trichologist in practice.

                                                                              ———————————————

                                   The 3 year course (for candidates who do not hold appropriate scientific degrees).

At the chosen inception date each Candidate will have satisfied herself/himself that this is the right course to pursue.
Each Candidate contracts for three calendar years, during which to research, write up and submit 20 essays per annum at the steady rate of 2 per month (none during the vacation months of  December or August).  The necessary deadlines for submissions are 7th and 21st days of the month (no exceptions can be made). Backfilling is not permitted so any shortfall will extend the course.
Each of the 60 + essays in the syllabus must have attracted a credit from the examiners to entitle the candidate to enter the end of course examination (usually May in London).

Fees
include the costs of marking / correcting the candidate’s essays by independent external qualified medical and scientific examiners.
The current annual fee charged by the College =  £2400 per calendar year (12 months).  This may be paid monthly (i.e. 12 x £200) by Bankers Order or Paypal. Payments must be received by the College on the 16th day of the month in advance.

Additional charges
for clinical tutorials/experience are paid to the clinical practice attended.  This is currently £100 per day (we recommend up to 10 days per year).  A fee of £200 per day is charged by Professor B Stevens for tutorials (one to two candidates only per session).

Other expenses include the purchase of textbooks (listed below). These are a reference necessity for any worthy trichologist in practice.

                                                           Additional information regarding either of these courses.

The College is required to transmit student essays to its independent external examiners (dermatologists and other scientists of substance) on given dates so it is essential that all essays are received by the College by 6pm on the 7th and 21st days of each academic month (not August or December). Candidates are urged to adhere to this necessity because essays received late will have lost their specific examining slot and will be held over until the next dispatch date (approx.14 days thereafter).  Back-filling is not possible therefore the loss of each irredeemable examining slot in this way will extend the course and its cost by 2 weeks.
The usual essay return time is 10 days, however delays may occur for reasons outside the control of the College.
The re-presentation of an essay which has been rejected by the College examiners (unusual) will be deemed a new essay and attract the examiner’s full re-reading / re-marking fee.  Each occurrence will therefore extend the course and its cost by 2 weeks.

If a course otherwise overruns its expected duration due to a Candidate taking study break, or the College adding a topic to the syllabus, reasonable additional monthly fees will be incurred until the course is completed.

The courses are distance learning from a home computer + some clinical experience days and annual one-to-one tutorials in London. The course may commence on the first day of any month (excluding December and August).
UK Candidates are expected to attend a London clinical practice on a regular basis (we recommend 10 visits each year at a cost of £100 per visit).

Prof B Stevens offers UK and overseas Candidates the opportunity of attending his Gidea Park RM2 6AU practice for private tutorials at mutually convenient times and for assessment and mock viva/voce examinations (cost; £200 per visit).

A Candidate desiring a study break must send a written request in advance to the College and thereafter take responsibility for cancelling future payments to the College (no reimbursements or allowances will otherwise be considered).
Any request for re-admission to the course will be considered on application.
A Candidate wishing to terminate a course can do so at any time by advising the College immediately.

                                                                                    Presentation of Essays
Each of the topics within the syllabus should be researched using carefully chosen Internet resources and the recommended textbooks (listed below), written up as academic standard essays in the student’s own words and submitted via e-mail to his/her Mentor on the 7th and 21st days of each academic month (not August or December).
All medical or scientific words / phrases / abbreviations must be briefly explained as the work progresses in order to convince the examiners that the content is fully understood. If after the initial essays have been received it is felt that guidance is required, the College may send a sample essay.
Opinions, graphics, photographs or any material sourced from texts or internet pages must be referenced in the obligatory bibliography. Too much well presented information is never criticised. ‘A diagram or picture can paint a thousand words.’ Accurate hand drawings are highly regarded.
If an examiner’s comment (in red type) indicates that an essay should be supplemented or re-written, it should be expedited as a matter of priority and the essay submitted at the next appropriate marking slot.  As examiners charge the College for re-submitted essays, each will add to the number of essays submitted and therefore extend the course.  Any course extension is charged for at the usual monthly rate.

Starred (*) topics in the syllabus generally attract short answers, therefore two or three starred (*) topics may be combined into one essay and submitted as one of the candidate’s agreed monthly entitlement.
All essays must include the candidates name, page number, date.

Work is always examined for plagiarism which is illegal and therefore regarded seriously by examiners.  Repeat offenders will be dismissed from the course.

Words guides are not generally given because written material will vary in length according to the individual student’s vocabulary and composition style. However the importance of including all relevant data and points of interest cannot be overstated.  Omissions may result in the examiner requesting additional work which should be presented without delay.

The accepted essays will collectively create the student’s own personal ‘workbook’ which should be constantly reviewed as the content will be the basis for the Viva/Voce part of the examination which follows the course completion. The Graduation Day is in early May.

During the course Prof B Stevens (current Head of College) will request occasional one-to-one meetings with the candidate to introduce the student to report writing and assess the candidate’s progress and potential for the final end of course examinations.

                                                                                   End of course examinations
The end of course examinations consists of:
i)    Demonstrating ability with consultation, diagnosis, prognosis and treatments (where applicable).
ii)   A viva/voce – live answers to questions posed by an experienced examiner.    

It is the examiner’s responsibility to establish the candidate’s integrity and knowledge of the subject and whether or not he/she is capable of conducting a practice in a manner which will attract patient satisfaction and reflect the integrity of The Trichological Society.
The questions addressed at examination will be chosen by the examiner (s) – they are not pre-established by the College.

For the avoidance of doubt – It is the student’s responsibility to maintain the momentum of the course in order to complete it on time. In the unlikely event of failure to do this, the course duration will be extended subject to the additional cost for each extra month (currently £200).

Your future success as a professional in this discipline will depend on a thorough understanding of the subject gained by dedicated tenacious study throughout the course.  Please remember that researching and writing an essay is just the first step,  memorising and understanding the content sufficiently to answer an examiner’s questions on it with accuracy and confidence must remain the principle objective as it will dictate success or failure.

PRACTICAL ASPECTS

Clinical observation / practical experience is obtained at clinical centres (currently in UK) either by a number of one-day per month attendances or less-frequent multi-day visits.   

Overseas candidates are required to visit the UK for at least one week’s practical experience plus other tutorials each year of their course. The Registrar is available to advise.

This is detailed later in this overview.

ENROLMENT PROCEDURE

A prospective student seeking enrolment should email The Registrar for an Application for Enrolment Form which will be sent by email. On completion this should be returned to The Registrar by email. The College will review the application and inform the applicant accordingly.
Successful applicants will be offered a place on the course to commence on a mutually agreed month of the year (not August or December).
Having accepted the place, the student is required to pay a non-returnable registration fee of £200 within 10 days to secure it and guarantee that he/she will honour the reservation. This sum will be deducted from the first course fee paid.
Course fees are to be received by The College not less than 14 days prior to the commencement date.

CANCELLATION OF A COURSE

It is to be understood that no refunds of academic fees will be considered where a student pays for and thereafter drops-out of or otherwise fails to complete any intended aspect / part of the course.

        ————————————————

 The Academic part of the course has 3 sections 

SECTION 1 – ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY

THE TOPICS
Each  must be presented and accepted by examiners.

1.  Heart – the physiology and function of the heart together with a convincing overview of the cardiovascular system.

2.  The Skeletal system – a detailed overview of the skeletal structure.

3.  A detailed description of the bones and muscles of the face and cranium. Mention the numerous fontanelle and their origins.

4.  The Muscular system – a description of muscle types with detailed description of the muscles of the face and head.

5.   The Renal System.

6.   The Endocrine system. This will be an extensive work detailing the numerous hormones their function and effect. Mention any known      affect on hair.

7.   The Lymphatic System.  This work will include a detailed explanation of the location, physiology and function of the respective organs.

8 .  The Skin. This work will include a detailed explanation of its structure and function but will exclude any detailed description of the pilo-sebaceous follicle, nails and hair/skin diseases/deformities, which will each be the focus of future individual assignments.

9.   The Hair. This extensive work will include a detailed morphology from conception, in-depth accounts of hair type (Afroid, Caucasoid Mongoloid) physical/ chemical structure, development, growth cycles (anagen, catagen, telogen and exogen) and follicular re-genesis, post puberty development, pigmentation, genetic factors, natural curl, density and other specific characteristics but exclude diseases which will each be the focus of future individual assignments.

10.   The Nails include a detailed account of physical structure, growth cycles. Mention pigmentation and diseases (with photographs were possible).

—————————————————————————

SECTION 2 – HAIR and SCALP CONDITIONS

This section may of necessity be extended if topics are added to the syllabus or essays require re-submission

Many topics in this section will constitute major essays, which will take time to research effectively to satisfy TTS academic standards.

To reiterate:  Each must be researched appropriately, written up in the candidate’s own words and include a bibliography. Each must then be submitted (email) to his/her assigned Mentor for marking by external examiners.  Their return will usually be  within 10 days but this cannot be guaranteed. Plagiarism is forbidden in accordance with academic protocol.

Whereas the major component of this course is academic learning, candidate’s also require clinical experience days arranged directly with your Mentor. There will be a charge of £100 for each attendance which will include the opportunity of observing consultation procedures and participating in some treatment regimes under the control of the presiding Consultant.
Private tutorials are available with Prof B Stevens (head of College) at a charge of £50 per hour.
As stated elsewhere herein a strict code of etiquette must be observed during all such visits.
As many of the conditions listed within the syllabus are rare, it is unlikely that students will see live examples of them during practical sessions. The recommendation is therefore that the candidate researches and collects an extensive personal photographic library from which to become acquainted with the visual symptoms of all conditions/diseases. Dermatology textbooks which include clear photographs of hair / scalp disease are a necessary investment (see recommended textbooks herein).

 ____________________________________________________________________________________

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE

Clinical protocol lectures:  Clinical management, Consultation procedures, Principles of diagnosis, Treatment regimes and other matters applicable to pure-trichologists in professional practice.
This part of the training involves clinical experience with actual patients and assisting with the day to day running of a successful clinical practice under the guidance of a qualified experienced Fellow of The Trichological Society.  Students residing in UK are expected to attend a clinical practice occasionally throughout the course. Practitioners who offer these clinical experience opportunities to students in UK are well qualified and willing to assist the student in their objective.  –  daily charges of £100 apply.

Professor B Stevens offers small group seminar’s at his 19 Balgores Square, Gidea Park RM2 6U practice. The charge of £50 per hour can be split between 2 attendees if desired.

Overseas students will be expected (where possible) to attend a dermatology department in their locality, or attend UK trichology practices for periods of 5 working days per year of study.  Well illustrated dermatology textbooks are very helpful. The Registrar will be happy to discuss any problems you may have (UK 07742 336 337 or email).

CLINICAL EXPERIENCE ETIQUETTE

Whereas clinical experience is a requirement there are certain matters which must be understood by the student attending a practice:

The clinic will be privately operated and therefore the student must respect the etiquette imposed by the owner who will be a qualified respected practitioner.

Students must reflect the dignity of the practice by adopting a conservative, smartly dressed demeanour (Jeans, unwashed or untidy hair, dirty finger nails or chipped varnish, obvious facial piercings etc are taboo).  The student may be required to bring a smart laundered white lab coat.

Students are there to observe and learn, but are invitees only, the practice is essentially the Consultant’s domain – therefore his / her requirements must be respected absolutely.

Students must not under any circumstances offer advice or opinions to patients.  Speak if spoken to is the motto.

Students must never discuss a patient’s diagnosis, condition or treatment other than in private with the Consultant.

There will be occasions during the day for one-to-one short conferences with the Consultant.  At all other times the student must be unobtrusive and aware that patients generally do not welcome ‘being gazed at’.


FINAL EXAMINATION

Subject to the candidate’s successful progression during the course the College Committee will invite a candidate to attend this examination.

This examination will include:

An extensive Viva / Voce Examination (live verbal questions and answers) based on the individual student’s coursework. Photographs of conditions will be shown and students asked to provide diagnoses, recommendations as to treatments (where appropriate), and prognoses.

The execution of real-life trichology procedures (consultation, diagnosis, prognosis and discussion regarding treatment options
and the performance of any recommended treatment with new patients in the presence of examiners.

Examinations are usually conducted in London during May, prior to the Graduation Day ceremony, but may in extenuating circumstances  be conducted at certain other times by special arrangement with the College Governors.

Examinees are hereby informed that whereas the initial examination is paid for by The Society, any re-examinations are student funded.


THE PRESIDENT’S DAY (annually in May)

This prestigious event offers an opportunity to meet with colleagues and other inspiring academics (old and new) and to attend the lectures presented. The lunch and dinner is good too.

All UK students are expected to attend these events.

REQUIREMENT FOR GRADUATION
