Key Course Facts

Course Description

Our hands-on undergraduate course has been designed to equip you with all the relevant theory, practical skills, and clinical experience that you'll need in order to become a competent chiropractor. That means from day one you’ll be building up clinical experience with real patient observations and case studies. In your final year of study you’ll be treating real patients under supervision in our large on-site teaching clinic which sees over 50,000 patients a year.

Our full-time course is accredited by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and the European Council on Chiropractic Education. Visit our accreditation's page for full details.

Be ready to get involved. The sooner you get into the clinic and start learning patient management methods like manipulation, soft tissue techniques and active rehabilitation, the more you will develop your practice. Being in a real life chiropractic environment will prepare you for your career, treating patients with musuloskeletal disorders and developing your practical skills, confidence and employability. The Master of Chiropractic degrees' integrated learning method will keep your brain active, learning multiple subjects at once with an emphasis on clinical application.

With engaging lectures and tutorials on offer, you’ll be learning from some of the global leaders in the field. You’ll get access to our Virtual Learning Environment, which is full of interactive online learning opportunities such as videos, quizzes and self-study lessons to help you in your studies. Of course, there are also practical classes and lab sessions where you can learn and practice your diagnostic and therapeutic skills with our tutors who are always on hand to help.

Recognised by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) for the purpose of eligibility for registration with that body.
