Course summary

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

As part of your chiropractic training, you will study 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 the chiropractic programme. 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.

This is a fully integrated undergraduate Masters Degree 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.

Assessment

A variety of assessment methods are used throughout each term, including short-answer in-class tests, practical tests, 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 practise as a chiropractor in the independent sector in the UK. There is also opportunity to apply for registration and employment in other countries worldwide.

Our chiropractic course boasts 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 sports medicine, rehabilitation, neurology or research.
