Community and Partnerships
AECC University College is at the forefront of engaging with others. Our research is presented at conferences around the world and we foster positive relationships with universities, funding bodies, governments, student associations, businesses and communities both nationally and internationally.
We may have a global outlook, but we're also firmly rooted in the local community and love to get involved wherever we can.
We welcome our communities onto campus to learn more about who we are and what we do. Why not check out our series of expert talks and join us in transforming lives through health sciences.
We work with a number of local and regional partners, providing value to our strategic institutional vision and giving back to our communities.
The quality of our official partnerships are testament to our drive and our passion to create transformational communities who share in our values and our successes.
Not sure what a typical day as a chiropractor looks like?
For those serious about a career in chiropractic, visiting our modern clinic and shadowing our clinical students can be arranged. However, because we are a professional Clinic potential visitors will need to meet the following requirements before a visit can be agreed with the Director of Clinic:
• Be 16 and over and in education subject to a satisfactory reference provided by a professional (preferably involved in your education).
• If over 16 and not in education subject to a satisfactory reference provided by a professional.
• We will consider applicants from students under 16 and in years 10 or 11 which will be assessed on an individual basis and require a suitable reference.
All applications to visit the clinic need to be made through email@example.com. All visits are agreed at the discretion of the Director of Clinic. Please note that all successful applicants to the scheme will be required to present photographic ID prior to entering Clinic. The Regulation requires that all visitors to a clinical setting must sign a Confidentiality Agreement.
Speak With us at an Event
School Visits, Career Fairs and UCAS Exhibitions
Our staff and Student Ambassadors regularly attend schools, careers fairs and UCAS exhibitions to talk about the courses we offer, the student experience and campus life, our facilities and the mixed methods of learning adopted at the AECC University College.
Contact us for more information on upcoming events, or speak to your school/college about us coming to visit you.
Community Engagement Programme
Our Senior Chiropractic Interns, studying in their final year, take part in at least two community engagement events as part of their course. This provides a great opportunity not only for students to gain experience outside of a clinical environment, but also enables us to connect with our communities and give back to the public. Some of the events we support each year include: Bournemouth Lions Club Healthy Happy Living event; Bournemouth Marathon; MacMillan Dorset Bike Ride; Rotary Dorset Bike Ride; Larmer Tree Marathon; Dorset Plane Pull; Bournemouth Bay Run; and Boscombe 10k.
