You will either enter the MChiro (Hons) programme at Year 0 (a 5-year course) or Year 1 (a 4-year course) depending on your background experience and qualifications.

All applicants who meet our minimum academic entry criteria will be invited to attend an interview. Home/EU applicants will usually be invited for interview at the AECC and overseas/non-EU applicants will usually be interviewed by Skype.
The interviews at the AECC are managed in a group format and will usually consist of no more than 6 applicants, conducted by two members of academic staff. You may be asked a range of questions centred around the chiropractic profession. No prior reading is required but applicants can expect to be asked about their motivation to undertake a career in chiropractic. If you are invited to interview, you should dress appropriately in a smart manner and aim to arrive no later than 10 minutes before the scheduled start time.
For applicants invited to be interviewed by Skype, the interview will normally last for around 25-30 minutes and will consist of questions around your knowledge of the chiropractic profession and your motivations for a career in this field. All Skype interviews are conducted in English.
The AECC conducts its interviews in line with SPA (Supporting Professionalism in Admissions) interview best practice guides. More information about the types of questions that may be asked of applicants can be found on page 21 of the following document here:
For those applicants that are selected for interview, further guidance will be given. To help prepare applicants for interview, we recommend spending a minimum of two days observing in a chiropractic setting which will give applicants greater insight into the profession.
