The History of Anglo-European College of Chiropractic

The university college, which is located in Bournemouth on the south coast of England, was founded in 1965 and was the first chiropractic school in Europe to be recognised by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA). Fourteen students enrolled in the first class at AECC in the autumn of 1965, but only one went on to graduate in 1969. However, by the mid-1970s student numbers had grown so rapidly that the original building and teaching clinic were no longer sufficient. In the early 1980s, the chiropractic community rallied in support of AECC's purchase of the Boscombe Convent. The official opening of the AECC at its present location took place on 21 May 1982.

Academic Highlights

Housed within the AECC University College campus, the AECC University College Chiropractic Clinic is one of the largest in Europe and houses 32 treatment rooms and fully equipped Exercise and Sport Performance Centres. The clinic is run by AECC faculty alongside final year students known as 'interns'. Interns in the clinic perform more than 55,000 treatments every year.
