About The AECC Chiropractic College
The AECC Chiropractic College was opened in the autumn of 1965 and only 14 students enrolled that academic year, with only one of those going on to complete the four year course and to graduate.
However, with the popularity of alternative treatments like Chiropractic in recent years, the student numbers rose quickly, resulting in the need for a larger building.
In 1982 the college moved into it's current location which was previously the Boscombe Convent, and has grown beyond all expectations.
The college became the first in the UK to offer Degree Courses in Alternative Medicine in 1988 (Council for National Academic Awards), and now offers 5 year Masters Degrees as well in conjunction with Bournemouth University.
The college opened what is one of the largest teaching clinics in 2009, featuring 34 treatment rooms, a high-tech functional exercise and rehabilitation centre, diagnostic ultrasound, x-ray and fluoroscopy.
The AECC Chiropractic College now has a satellite clinic in Southampton just 30 miles away, as the Chiropractic field continues to grow in the UK and in particular on the south coast.
Why choose Bournemouth as the location for an international college of medicine?
From it's humble beginnings in the Victorian era as a spa town, Bournemouth has really grown up, and by the 1960s it was already turning into an international destination, with a number of International Language Schools becoming established in the town.
It wasn't long before several major financial institutions relocated to Bournemouth, to reduce the overhead of being based in London, and following it's upgrating to a university in 1992, Bournemouth University has proved itself to be a top location in the UK for studying Media and Technology, being rated the UK's Number One New University according to the 2009 & 2010 editions of The Guardian University Guide. One statistic alone says a lot, when you realise that half of the animators who worked on James Cameron's Avatar were graduates of Bournemouth University.
Adding this together, you have a location with a top Chiropractic College, a true international centre in a beautiful part of the UK, with some of the finest beaches, a lot of history, bordering on the edge of The New Forest and right next door to Sandbanks which is the 4th most expensive place to live in the world.
Who in their right mind would not want to come and study to be a Chiropractor here!

What Is A Chiropractor?
A Chiropractor is a healthcare specialist that works with disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, that is with problems that affect the spine, muscles or other joints in the body. Chiropractic healthcare is most often associated with back and neck pain, migraines, sports injuries and whiplash.
Many people who suffer from joint pain, neck ache and sciatica can use chiropractic treatment to help to ease their pain.
The main treatment that is used in chiropractic care is manipulation of the joints and the soft tissue around them.
Because chiropractic care can involve manipulation of the neck, which may affect the flow of blood to the brain, it has been linked by some sources with side effects such as strokes, however no significant research has been done to date to indicate that there is a link.
Chiropractic care was created by Daniel David Palmer in the 1890's. His son helped to expand the area in the 20th century, and chiropractic is now the third doctored health profession in the USA, Canada and Australia after medicine and dental care.
The profession is still relatively new in Europe, but is rapidly becoming more mainstream.
You can find more information about chiropractic healthcare on Wikipedia.
What Does It Take To Be A Chiropractor?
To become a chiropractor it is necessary to complete a course that is recognised by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), in addition to a minimum of one year of supervised employment in a clinical practice.
Typically students undertake their work experience during their college training period, and the courses that are run by the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic are recognised by the GCC.
As with many other occupations in the health industry, a chiropractor is required to continue their education in the field, and every chiropractor must complete at least 30 documents hours of learning each year, in order to remain on the register of chiropractors.
Further information on the requirements to become a chiropractor can be downloaded from the British Chiropractic Association.
