Course Hours and Locations

Course times will normally be from 10 - 6.30 first day with course registration at 9.30, 9 - 5.30 second (and third) days, 8 - 3.30 final day.  This is to allow people travelling time and minimise accommodation costs.


Ayr, Glasgow area

We have chosen Ayr as our Scottish base for courses as it is so easy to get to and in the warmest part of Scotland!  It also is a very pretty location with miles of sandy beach and views of the isle of Arran.  Accommodation is cheaper and more plentiful here than it would be in a city and there are plenty of amenities and good restaurants.

Ayr has excellent road and rail links, lying just 40 minutes outside Glasgow.  It also is in the unique position of being within 45 minutes of two airports, flying all over the world.  Prestwick airport is adjacent to the town with a direct rail link to the centre of Ayr taking under 10 minutes.  IGlasgow airport also has a rail link to Ayr which is linked to Glasgow airport by a 5 minute journey on a connecting bus or taxi and then train from Paisley Gilmour Street station directly to Ayr approximately every 30 minutes.  The journey time is about 1 hour from the airport to Ayr town centre. 



We use a venue in the capital to serve those living in the south of England.  We are close to public transport links and ensure ease of travel for those attending. Our venue is close to Euston station.


Cancellation Policy

Cancellations will be subject to a £50 fee if made 3 calendar months or more prior to the first day of the course. If you give less than 3 calendar months notice that you are unable to attend the class the full deposit of £200 will be forfeited. 


We will transfer prepayments less the cancellation fee to other courses/dates, otherwise they will be refunded, less the cancellation fee.


Professional and Career Development Loans

Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning.  You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning (or three years if it includes one year’s relevant unpaid practical work).  The Learning and Skills Council will pay the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards.  The loan can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses.  You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries.  Because the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, they should only be considered as an option once all other student funding options have been investigated.  For further information on financial assistance to support your learning, please visit


www.direct.gov.uk/adultlearning or contact Careers Advice on 0800 100 900.


Our learning provider registration number is: 20142.


ELCAS - Funding for MoD Personnel
We are delighted to have completed the registration process and have gained recognition as an approved Learning Provider under the ELCAs scheme.  Our provider number is 7623. 


Our Philosophy

Barral Institute UK aims to make Visceral Manipulation training accessible and affordable for practitioners in the UK.  For this reason we try and keep the classes as low in cost as possible, whilst still ensuring a high quality product.  Therefore we will tend to use cheaper venues where possible.  We also will try and start and end classes to allow travelling time so it minimises time away from home for those travelling a distance.  


We aim to treat everyone fairly and as equals.  Therefore we hold no prejudices and value any suggestions, ideas or feedback you may wish to offer us.  If we can be of assistance in any way, please do contact us.
