University of South Wales was 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 Royal College of Chiropractors, as well as many other international chiropractic organisations.
Our Welsh Institute of Chiropractic (WIoC) centre has 20 treatment rooms, as well as a digital X-ray suite, MRI facilities and a functional rehabilitation suite. We have first-class learning facilities on campus, including a clinical simulation suite, DEXA-scan and a diagnostic ultrasound suite.
The chiropractic degree will develop a critical, analytical and evaluative approach to the principles and practice of chiropractic. You will gain investigative skills and see chiropractic in the context of all other health-related professions. Your chiropractic training means you will understand the scientific principles relevant to chiropractic, and be able to diagnose and manage a range of relevant, health-related conditions. To improve your employability, the chiropractic degree includes practical skills relevant to professional practice and effective communication skills, as well as understand the legal and business framework of the professional chiropractor.
Typically, students on our chiropractic degree will spend around 20 hours each week in lectures, practicals, tutorials, laboratory or clinical work, depending on the topic.
