Course summary

If you want to be a chiropractor, this chiropractic course provides the appropriate clinical education and training to meet registration requirements in the UK.

This is a fully integrated undergraduate Masters chiropractic programme that is accredited by both the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and the European Council on Chiropractic Education (ECCE). This ensures that graduates meet national and international chiropractic accreditation standards and can register with the GCC to practise in the UK.

On our chiropractic degree you will study and understand the human body in health and disease, be able to identify abnormalities of human structure and function, and manage patients through manual methods. These include manipulation, soft tissue techniques and active rehabilitation.

Clinical experience is a major part of your chiropractic training. Elements of clinical work are introduced from the start and are carefully integrated to reinforce your academic study. Your final year is a clinical placement, during which you will treat and manage patients with musculoskeletal disorders to develop your clinical skills, confidence and employability.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

Assessment

A variety of assessment methods are used throughout each term, including short-answer in-class tests, practical tests, practical vivas, multiple-choice tests, group presentations and long-answer written tests.

Careers

Graduates of this chiropractic degree will be eligible to apply for registration with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) to legally practise as a chiropractor in the UK. There is also opportunity to apply for registration and employment in other countries worldwide. Our chiropractic courses boast a very high employment uptake in the profession. Chiropractic is a growing profession in the UK and Europe that offers substantial opportunities. There are also career opportunities in education, or you could specialise in academia, sports medicine, rehabilitation, neurology or research.
