To apply for any of these courses you will need to complete a UCAS application (www.ucas.com).
Apply via UCAS
The on-time application deadline for UCAS applications is 15 January 2019. If you are at school or college, you may be asked to fill in your application earlier to allow them time to prepare your reference.
Master in Chiropractic
If your application passes the initial assessment stage, you will be formally invited to book onto one of our Applicant Interview Days.
Interviews are held in small groups and are normally conducted by two members of AECC University College academic staff and will last around 45-60 minutes.
UCAS gives some guidance as to how to prepare for an interview, which can be found on the UCAS website. If you are selected for an interview, we will send you an official email invitation with further instructions.
If you are unable to attend an Applicant Interview Day, we will carry out an interview with you by Skype. Please note, this is carried out in exceptional circumstances only, such as if you live abroad.
We know that some students may apply with qualifications that are of a higher level than our advertised minimum academic entry criteria.
This applies to those applicants who have studied at other institutions at undergraduate or postgraduate level. For those students, the AECC University College will consider these qualifications on an individual basis and we will likely ask you to send a scanned copy of your transcripts and syllabus/course handbook to help us assess your application.
For more information about this please read our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) policy available on our Latest Policies Page.
Your personal statement is the one opportunity you have to emphasise your motivation for undertaking the course(s) that you have applied for. It's really important that you start the personal statement by detailing exactly why you want to undertake a particular course and anything that's inspired you to get to the point of application.
We will also need to know about the activities/hobbies that you have outside of studying and which elements of your learning so far have interested you the most and how you think those might help you on the course you've applied for.
Finally we would recommend that you spend the final part of your statement articulating what you intend to do once you've finished the course of study you're applying for.
All of these things will allow us to build up a detailed picture of the type of person you are and the qualities and experiences you possess. For helpful tips on writing your statement please visit the UCAS website. Good luck!
Even if the qualifications you have studied are not listed under our entry requirements you may still be considered. If you are unsure whether or not your qualifications would be suitable to the course you wish to apply for, please email our admissions team on firstname.lastname@example.org
We do accept deferred applications. You can select a deferred year of entry on your UCAS choice and you must meet the conditions of your offer in the same academic cycle as which you apply in.
It's important that you make sure the right course is suitable for you and will progress your career or study in the right direction.
Make sure to explore our postgraduate courses and read the entry requirements. The tailored courses have specific aims to help you get the best out of your time with us. Download our course specifications to find out more about units and what you'll be covering in your study.
If you're still unsure, or you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you to help you make the right decision for you. Drop us an email or call us on 01202 436200.

You may have completed similar study at other institutions and can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) as part of the application process.
