Our flagship Master of Chiropractic (Hons) course is recognised by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and accredited by the European Council on Chiropractic Education (ECCE), which means you will be able to work in most countries around the world*
From day one you will be building up clinical experience with real patient observations and case studies. Our pioneering courses use a range of teaching methods with an emphasis on integrated and clinically relevant learning. Lectures, workshops and tutorials are interactive and you will also have access to our Virtual Learning Environment, which is full of videos, quizzes and self-study lessons to help you fulfil your potential. Of course, there are also practical classes and lab sessions in which you can hone your diagnostic and therapeutic skills with our tutors always on hand to help. You are encouraged to observe patient treatments throughout your studies and in your final year of training you will be treating real patients under supervision in our large, on-site, teaching clinic that sees over 55,000 patients annually and is equipped with state-of-the art facilities.
