A Warm Welcome to Our New Students

Back to normal! It’s great to have our 4-year MChiro students back in the building again at the start of term. Although throughout the pandemic we have been teaching our students on campus for practical and clinical studies, it is a real milestone to go back to normal for the entire curriculum and to see our students back face-to-face engaging with everyone – just as they used to!

There have been some advantages to online learning, and we will keep the best of that, but so many students have struggled with isolation during the pandemic, we are particularly pleased to bring them back fully onto campus once again.

There have been some real changes over the summer, one of which is the significant upgrade to our IT and virtual learning environment (VLE) to enhance the students’ learning experience.

Here they are in the lecture

theatre logging on for the first time with their laptops and mobile devices and getting used to the new look and feel of the system.

The day after lessons begin in earnest!

If you are interested in becoming a chiropractor, our January intake for the MChiro is currently recruiting.

We also have a January Access programme for those who do not have the correct qualifications for direct entry.

Please contact us for more information.


Graduation 2021

In August 2021, we were delighted to host our much delayed Graduation Ceremony which should have happened in April 2020! If anyone can remember that far back, it was called first lockdown! We also ‘caught up’ our April 2021 Grads who also were delayed by yet another lockdown.

Held at the prestigious Oxford Union with its impressive surroundings it was important to us and to our students that we graduated them face-to-face rather than the virtual world so they could revel in their achievements and relax with a glass of champagne with their friends and family in the real world!

The ceremonies were well received by all attending and we are so proud of our graduates who are starting off their careers in the middle of a global pandemic!

Graduation is always a bittersweet occasion – we are so happy to see our students achieve their dreams and so sorry to see them go. But the day was amazing to see two year groups graduate who have met incredible challenges in completing their studies and are now starting practice life in the middle of unprecedented times.

Students attend Ice Hockey Event!

The first tranche of students and clinic interns of the MChiro programme attend our new sports experience day!

Thanks to our Graduate, Berni Martin of the MCA who has made tickets available to observe the Bracknell Hornets, a professional top tier Ice Hockey team in action. Students not only get to watch the match but also engage with players and the team Doctor, and observe chiropractic care taking place in a sports environment.

A first class experience, and by all accounts hugely enjoyable and informative!
