The Australian Chiropractic College is proud to deliver cutting-edge curriculum in a caring and vibrant environment.
Study At ACC
The college was established by a passionate group of practitioners who believe there was a better way to deliver optimal health for people through chiropractic and educate better ‘practice ready’ graduates. We are a new institution – innovation, energy, and commitment are at our core. Our aim is to provide the very best in chiropractic education.
The ACC program has been designed to provide a holistic, ‘job ready’ focus on chiropractic education. You will graduate well prepared and appropriately skilled for long term careers dedicated to chiropractic.
What Makes ACC Different?
We focus on our people, not numbers. Small class sizes offer you greater engagement with our academics, experts, and each other – with lots of opportunities for hands-on learning. The campus is based in the heart of the beautiful city of Adelaide and surrounded by outstanding cafes, restaurants, popular bars, and city life so you can enjoy a good balance of study and play.
Our program also has a strong focus on industry experience plus we teach you all the skills you need to run your own practice and enjoy a flexible career with independence and impact.
The First In SA
We are the first and only educational institution in South Australia to offer a TEQSA-registered Bachelor of Chiropractic degree. This degree program been designed by chiropractors with professional and academic credentials, with a view to graduating practitioners who are committed to an integrative whole person (vitalistic) approach to chiropractic care.
