Master of Chiropractic

Are you looking for a degree that will improve your ability, confidence and employability in chiropractic? Our chiropractic training introduces aspects of clinical work from the start and carefully integrates this to reinforce your academic study. Your clinical expertise will develop, until you are able to work under supervision as a student clinician and provide chiropractic care at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic outpatient clinic, which is based at the University.

We were the first university in the UK to offer a fully integrated undergraduate Masters chiropractic degree that is accredited by both the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and the European Council on Chiropractic Education (ECCE).

We have an excellent working relationship with the chiropractic profession and enjoy close links with the British Chiropractic Association and the College of Chiropractors, as well as adhering to the clinical and professional chiropractic educational guidelines agreed by the European-South African Education Collaboration. For you, this means your learning is underpinned by best practice care and delivery in the chiropractic profession.

What you will study

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 them through appropriate therapy.

Chiropractors focus on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of problems – and the effects of these disorders on the functioning of the musculo-skeletal and nervous systems and general health.

Our chiropractic degree also meets demanding international chiropractic educational standards and benefits from very advantageous funding arrangements for chiropractic students in the EU.
