How to Train

Our MSc Animal Manipulation (Chiropractic) programme is unique in the world and is the only validated Masters level programme that trains students in chiropractic for animals.

  • Master the theory and practice of animal care
  • Learn the respected McTimoney technique for animals
  • Attend monthly weekend tutorials over two years
  • Taught in collaboration with Warwickshire College

A wide range of academic subjects are studied as well as an introduction to the philosophy and practice of animal techniques. The first year of the programme is delivered at Warwickshire College where students have access to library and animal facilities. The second year of the programme is conducted at various sites throughout the country where practical skills are taught under the supervision of a qualified practitioner. The programme is semestered over two years and students are required to attend monthly weekend tutorial sessions.

Awarded by BPP University, the MSc Animal Manipulation programme is a Masters level programme that trains students in Animal Manipulation. The programme is designed for students with a BSc degree in Equine/Animal Science (or other animal focused degrees). Students without a manipulative background will need to complete the Graduate Certificate in Animal Therapy that will provide them with essential hand skills such as equine and canine massage, which will allow them to progress to the Masters programme. Those who already have training in a hands-on therapy (this may include a chiropractor, physiotherapist, osteopath or any other fully qualified and suitably experienced practitioner), or those for those who are a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, can gain direct entry to the MSc.
