Why I Chose to Study Chiropractic

I knew that I wanted to study chiropractic at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic
When it came to going to university I knew that I wanted to study chiropractic. The choices at the time were the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic and the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic. These are the two main colleges in the UK. Both the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic and the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic have good reputations for training chiropractors.
I visited both chiropractic colleges and assessed their chiropractic courses before making my decision. Both were four years full time chiropractic courses. Both covered the history of chiropractic, chiropractic technique, chiropractic case management, neurology, physiology, anatomy and much, much more.
Both courses looked great and I was actually keen on both of them. I was living in Eastbourne at the time with my family and this made Bournemouth (The Anglo-European College of Chiropractic) a better proposition due to distance. However, the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic only had chiropractic courses and no other studies there. At the time I wondered if it might be a little too much chiropractic talk to be at an educational institution where there was no variety. I thought that chiropractic in lectures, then chiropractic at home, and socialising only with chiropractors might be a little intense. Everyone needs to talk about something different sometimes.
The Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, however, was attached to the University of Glamorgan (now the University of South Wales). This university offers a broad range of courses and I thought that the variety would create a better learning and living environment for me, personally. Having been through the experience, I am very happy that I chose the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic.
I feel that I am a well-trained and well-rounded Chiropractor because of my intensive studies and a massive bonus is that I met my fiancée at University. She now lives down here with me in Eastbourne.
If you are thinking about studying to be a chiropractor then I would urge you to take a look at both the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic and the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic to decide which is right for you. Both have great courses and it may simply come down to personal preference when you choose between them.
