Our Alumni Community
AECC University College is extremely proud of its alumni. Over the years as the institution has evolved from a chiropractic training college to a health science focused University College, we have supported and championed our alumni all around the world.
All former students of AECC University College, or its predecessor institution, AECC, are automatically members. Former and current staff are also members of the AECC University College alumni, which is a great way to keep in touch with each other and find out the latest news from the University College.
AECC Summit 2018
This year, we’re going bigger and better.
AECC Summit is the new name for our ‘reunion’ event, but it's much more than a chance to meet up with your friends and party.
This annual, whole-day event will celebrate your achievements since leaving AECC and showcase our current training and research opportunities. It's the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your alma mater. You’ll be able to catch up with old friends, take in some panel talks with leading speakers, partake in classes and then party the night away.
Meet up with your course mates, speak to tutors and staff both new and old, learn something, engage with our wider alumni community and see how AECC University College is thriving.
Alumni returning to AECC University College can take part in a selection of daytime activities and tours, including breakfast networking with the Principal and other senior members of staff, to exciting talks and demonstrations (speakers names to be announced).
We’ll also have our partners and local community links on campus, so you can be part of these relationships too.
In the evening, we will be holding a special celebration dinner at Bournemouth’s Hilton Hotel, with live music and three course dinner. Dance the night away with friends and create new memories to cherish. It is not essential to come to the day event, but we recommend it so you get the whole Summit experience and don't miss out on the activities.
Alumni Recognition Award 2018

Tide, our alumni e-bulletin
Tide is the official alumni e-bulletin of AECC University College designed to keep you up to date and connected with your alma mater. Sent out to our alumni community on a quarterly basis, Tide showcases our alumni successes, memories, and guest articles alongside University College news and updates.
The name Tide was chosen as we’ve taught some of the most remarkable individuals from all over the world who have gone on to have successful careers and we want to celebrate your achievements in our unique and global alumni community. As we send our graduates into the world, just as the tide goes out and returns here on Bournemouth beach, we hope you will return and retain close ties with us.
Through this bulletin, other communication channels, and events, we want to allow you to connect no matter how recently, or long ago, you walked through Parkwood Campus. You are our biggest supporters and advocates, so we want you to really get involved by tagging us in on social media, contributing and sharing your stories, updates, memories, articles, and photos with us.

A great day! We're meeting inspiring chiropractors from all over the UK and abroad who are looking to recruit the best chiropractic graduates."
Our annual Speed Meet is a popular event amongst our final year Master of Chiropractic students as they look for employment following graduation. Using the speed-dating format, with 5 - 10 minute speed interviews, it's the perfect way for practices to see a large number of students throughout the course of one day.
Following the interviews, students and employers then have the opportunity to speak further in the SU bar. We always have fantastic feedback from the event, with practices having the rare opportunity to see so many students to fill their vacancies.
Dates for Speed Meet 2019 will be announced soon! Places at the Speed Meet are available to AECC University College alumni first, and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis thereafter. For more information, please email our Student Services.
