This is the first of four Modules in The Penny Price Academy of Aromatherapy Diploma course in Clinical Aromatherapy, designed for aspiring professional aromatherapists and alternative health practitioners.

The learning is based around the course notes provided, background reading and research materials supplied. The student will need to complete this module and the required assessments successfully before proceeding to the next module. Advice is offered at every stage of the course through contact with a personal tutor. Upon successful completion of all four modules and exam, a Penny Price Aromatherapy Diploma will be awarded.

At the end of the course, you are required to download and print the Assignment Paper (PDF). Please answer all the questions and return it by either post or email (courses@penny-price.com)


To gain your diploma and be issued with your certificate you will need to hold qualifications in both Anatomy and Physiology and Business Studies as core learning. If you already hold such a qualification to the same level, we would just need evidence of this. Alternatively, we have options for these elements to be completed with us and they can be undertaken at any time before, during or after your aromatherapy studies.
