Please note that due to exceptionally high demand, this course is no longer recruiting for September 2021 entry.
If you’re interested in Chiropractic, this course is an ideal route to achieve a Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro). Chiropractic is a healthcare profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system – and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.
We offer the only Chiropractic course in Greater London, and our new location in Croydon will be at the heart of our mission to transform lives, communities and society through applied education. As part of your studies, you will learn in brand new, dedicated Chiropractic facilities. Our public facing Chiropractic clinic will give you first-hand experience of working with patients and grow community connections.
Our first clinic will run from Southwark from July 2021, before moving to our new campus. Find out more about LSBU Croydon here.
The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) has pledged to increase the number of chiropractors within the UK from 3,100 to 5,000 by 2025, enabling increased access for UK residents and an increased partnership with other professions allied to medicine such as physiotherapy and sports and exercise rehabilitation. You could be part of this…
During the programme, you'll study human biology and physiology in order to understand the human body in health and disease. You'll also explore the important role chiropractors have in contributing to the management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal conditions, and have the unique opportunity to study alongside other associated undergraduate students in Allied Health Sciences, including Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation and Exercise.
Diagnostic, clinical and research skills are developed throughout the course through a range of modules. There are clinical placements that will equate to at least 1000 hours. This component is assessed through a range of case-management summaries and direct supervision.
Some compulsory skills sessions may take place in the evening.
Because this is the only London-Based Chiropractor course, qualified students will be able to readily access the significant chiropractor market in and across London. An increasing number of chiropractors are being contracted through Any Qualified Provider schemes to deliver services to NHS patients. And once you've successfully completed the course you're eligible for registration with the General Chiropractic Council as a Chiropractor. At this point you'll be equipped to set up as an independent practitioner. In addition to private practice, chiropractors can work in a hospital setting, multidisciplinary clinics, as well as research or education.
We are University of the Year for Graduate Employment for the second year in a row - The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018, 2019.
At LSBU, we want to set you up for a successful career. During your studies – and for two years after you graduate – you’ll have access to our Employability Service, which includes:
Our Student Enterprise team can also help you start your own business and develop valuable entrepreneurial skills.

Once we have made you an offer, you can apply for accommodation. You can rent from LSBU and you’ll deal directly with the university, not third party providers. That means we can guarantee you options to suit all budgets, with clear tenancy agreements and all-inclusive rents that include insurance for your personal belongings, internet access in each bedroom and on-site laundry facilities.
Or, if you’d rather rent privately, we can give you a list of landlords – just ask our Accommodation Service.

You don't need to wait for a confirmed place on a course to start applying for student finance. Read how to pay your fees as an undergraduate student.
LSBU Croydon is our new campus opening in September 2021 with a mission to transform lives and communities. With brand new state of the art facilities and placements across Croydon, we aim to help tackle the NHS shortage of nurses across the area. To study at LSBU Croydon please put a C on your UCAS application.
Home/EU postgraduate students and research students should apply through our dedicated application system.
Your application will be circulated to a number of potential supervisors who will look at your academic qualifications, experience and the research proposal to decide whether your research interest is something that could be supervised at LSBU.
There will also be an interview either by telephone or at the University. If you are successful you will be offered a place on a course and informed of the next enrolment date. The whole process normally takes between six to eight weeks, from receipt of your application to a decision being made about your application at the School.
All pre-registration students need to be DBS cleared before going on placement. You’ll need to have an enhanced DBS check even if you have had one before and will not be able to go on placement until this is complete.
The DBS process is not difficult but can take some time so it's best to get started as soon as you receive your email. You will receive the email during Summer 2021.
If you're part of the DBS update service, your subscription is up to date and you already have a DBS certificate, please bring in your original green DBS certificate for the document check. To take advantage of the update service, your certificate needs to be classified as 'Enhanced' and workforce must be listed as 'Adult and Child'. If you have any queries, please email us at email@example.com.
Our DBS supplier, Verifile, will send you an email with all the details you need to complete your DBS.
Verifile will give you instructions to log into their system and complete your personal details and information. To complete the process, you'll need your passport or driving licence and 5-year address history including dates when you moved in/out.
You can use your application number to track the progress of your DBS.
When you've finished, your Disclosure Statement will be mailed to the most recent address in your submission, so please make sure it's correct. We don't automatically receive a copy of this Statement, which is why we need you to bring it in as part of the next step.
Only Social Work applicants need to pay for their DBS. It costs £46 and can be purchased on our online store.
Please include any and all major and minor, spent and unspent convictions, cautions, warning and reprimands, even if they relate to juvenile offences or seem trivial or unimportant. Some minor offences will not prevent you from going on placement or being offered a place on your course, but still need to be reviewed so it’s best to be honest and include everything. Also, the more information you include about any offences can help reduce the time it takes to assess them.
Yes, you do. You need to have an up-to-date DBS. Once you have received the email from our DBS supplier make sure you start the process straight away. All details of how to do this will be outlined in the email. If you don’t complete your DBS in the timeframe given, we may withdraw your offer even if term has already started. So it’s important that you get started as soon as you receive the email.
Government legislation requires all Higher Education Institutions who offer courses where students may come into unsupervised contact with children or vulnerable adults to have this check. These checks also help us to ensure duty of care to our students, and create a safer environment for patients seen by our students.
As part of the University’s admissions process, declarations of any offence may be referred to a virtual panel made up of senior managers from partner NHS Trusts and/or other sectors within Health and Social Care. Any DBS that is considered by the panel will be anonymised. The panel members then deliberate and make a recommendation whether the application be rejected, accepted or request further information or documents.
If you have declared an offence, we might ask for more information from you in writing which will help the panel make a decision. Once your declaration has been referred to the panel it can take up to 28 working days to be processed.
You need to put your current address on your DBS application because this is where your Statement will be mailed. If you’ve moved house between submitting and receiving your DBS, make sure you have mail forwarding set up so that you’ll receive your statement. If you’ve moved recently, make sure you have proof of your new address (such as a new bank statement) to bring for your document checks.
If you’ve lost your statement you will need to pay £46 to purchase a new one.
Yes. If your application has been rejected due to your DSB declaration/discloser, you will be sent a letter to confirm this. There will be instructions in the letter about how you can appeal and which supporting information you need to provide. Once a decision has been made you will receive a letter from the School Executive Team.
Once you have completed the online part of the DBS process, you will need to produce three accepted documents from this list (PDF File 248 KB) to be verified.
LSBU help desks are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are temporarily accepting ID documents and DBS certificates for Update Service checks by email. Documents should be clear and legible; DBS certificates should include all pages. Please send your documents to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Southwark: Southwark Student Help Desk in the K2 building Monday – Friday between 9am-11am or 1pm-4pm
Havering: come to reception at Havering Monday – Friday between 8:30-10:30am, 12-2pm, 4-5pm
If you’re not able to come to campus, you can get your documents checked and certified at the Post Office for a fee of £10.50. To do this, make photocopies of your three accepted ID documents and take your DBS form, copies and originals of your documents to the Post Office. The Post Office will stamp the form and photocopies and given them back to you. Email your post office receipt, stamped form and stamped documents to email@example.com.
An exciting part of many of our Health and Social Care courses is the opportunity to learn off-campus and work with patients, clients and/or service users. Before you start, we need to make sure that you have the correct levels of immunisations.
The second part of your occupational health check is to get any inoculations that you may need from your GP. When attending your GP appointment, please take printed copies of these two documents with you.
After these steps are complete you will receive an email from OHWorks Ltd inviting you to attend an appointment on-campus with an Occupational Health Nurse. These appointments take place during the week and sometimes when your classes have already started.
The OH team have prepared this guide (PDF File 588 KB) which outlines what to expect at each stage. If you have queries or concerns about your Occupational Health clearance or inoculations please contact the Occupational Health team.
We have a duty of care to students and patients and so need to make sure you have the correct level of immunisation before you go on placement. You won’t be able to go on placement if you don’t have this or are not OH cleared.
Contact the OH team at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to advise you.
Please contact the OH team to reschedule at least 48 hours in advance. Remember that you won’t be able to go on placement until you’re cleared.
Yes. Tell the OH Nurse about all conditions including specific learning difficulties even if you’ve declared these in the past. This will allow us to make reasonable adjustments whilst you’re on placement.
The information you share with the OH Nurse will be treated with confidence, meaning that it won’t be automatically shared with the DDS team. The DDS team can help you to receive support for your lectures, assignments and exams so it’s worth to register with them and provide evidence of your condition if you need this support.
Before starting your course, you may want to check or practice your numeracy skills. The National Numeracy Challenge is a free online tool that helps you learn, revise and quiz your essential numeracy skills. You’ll also be able to get a certificate to show your efforts.
Before you start your course we’ll send you information on what you’ll need to do before you arrive and during your first few days on campus. You can read about the process on our new students pages.
We plan this course to make sure you complete the required number of hours in both theory and practice (not less than 1000 hours in assessed clinical practice). Practice learning opportunities will be in placements in local clinics, community, private and voluntary sector agencies as appropriate for the delivery of chiropractic focused clinical provision. A variety of theory and practical assessments assess and grade learning throughout the programme. You must achieve the requisite academic credit (and specified practice hours and competencies) in order to graduate and professionally register as a Chiropractor.
Your holiday periods will not follow the normal University timetable because of placements. You’ll receive more details once you start your course.
We help our students prepare for university even before the semester starts. To find out when you should apply for your LSBU accommodation or student finance read the How to apply tab for this course.
