Approval of Undergraduate Programmes

As part of the GCC’s approval and quality assurance of chiropractic degree programmes, a panel of Education Visitors is appointed by the Education Committee to analyse programmes to establish whether it meets our Education Standards as well as conduct approval and monitoring visits to the education providers. Education Visitors advise the Committee of  whether the programmes being delivered adhere to our criteria.

Conditions of approval and recommendations are given to each institution as an outcome of the approval process. The Education Providers are then subject to an annual monitoring process to ensure that the programme meets the conditions and the recommendations
