We spoke to student, Cathi Telle who studying a health science degree in chiropractic at the Angle-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth:
“Chiropractic to me is lifelong learning, as it gives you the possibility to treat a variety of different patients with different complaints. Now in my final year treating patients in the AECC clinic, I can say that I definitely made the right decision in choosing coming here to study.
The AECC was my choice for many reasons, including the size of the college and great student environment, but above all, I wanted to study for a degree that gives a comprehensive learning experience. Studying at the AECC with people of different nationalities and a different background made me also learn a lot about myself. I applied to present my research project to the Chiropractic, Osteopathy & Physiotherapy Annual Conference and I won the first prize for my research poster. It was a great experience and reward as I had put a lot of effort into my project.”
