Helping you to help others
For over 50 years we have been leaders in musculoskeletal health and wellbeing and our expertise spans areas in chiropractic, psychology; sports, exercise and health science; and medical imaging.
As the first chiropractic college in Europe our success is built on a commitment to excellence.
Becoming a University College and gaining Taught Degree Awarding Powers is a credit to our continuous drive in innovation and growth. It is our proud, pioneering spirit and a history in healthcare, education, training and delivery that allows us to continue to challenge and shape the future of health sciences today.
Take a look at our history timeline below.
2015 - 2016
Enhancements to clinical care
We opened a new purpose-built teaching clinic in 2009, offering a range of facilities to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate patients with musculoskeletal conditions. As well as thirty-two treatment rooms, an exercise centre and x-ray suite, an open upright MRI scanner was added to the clinic complex. The availability of digital x-ray, video fluoroscopy, diagnostic ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging provides an outstanding collection of imaging modalities. More than 50,000 treatments are currently provided at AECC University College's Chiropractic Clinic each year.
We built a University College!
As a result of the institution’s hard work, the former College gained Taught Degree Awarding Powers, and in turn University College status. These achievements indicate a mature institution, and one that no longer requires another higher education institution to validate the courses it offers.
The rapid progress of the newly named institution provided an opportunity to be clear about what sets the AECC University College apart, particularly in a very competitive marketplace, and to also emphasise its position within the higher education sector.
