Course Description

The McTimoney College of Chiropractic is owned, managed and operated by BPP University. All learners are learners of the University, programmes are internally approved by the University and graduates are awarded a degree of the University.  The Masters in Chiropractic is externally recognised by the General Chiropractic Council.

Students will learn the art, science and philosophy of chiropractic, preparing them for the chiropractic profession with a recognised degree. Chiropractors need to perform well in a clinical environment and we are able to combine the academic excellence of a university with the real-life focus of a professional environment.

Our Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro) brings together academic, practical and clinical components to equip you with the essential skills and knowledge to become a practising chiropractor.

There are two routes available to you: the four-year option follows an intensive academic route, perfect for students coming straight from college or A-Levels. The five-year option has an element of flexibility and is best suited to those who plan to work while studying or are considering a career change.

Our Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro) is specifically designed to give you the necessary skills, knowledge and hands-on experience needed to become a safe and competent Chiropractor. The four-year route is perfect if you are coming straight from A-levels or equivalent, and includes three years of intensive academic and practical studies, with full-time clinic work in year four. Our five-year course has been specifically designed for adult learners and allows you to fit your studies around other commitments.
