New Zealand College of Chiropractic


Students at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic explore the principles of chiropractic with a particular focus on the synergistic relationship between its philosophy, science and art.

A world-class academic programme

The College attracts students from all over the world who are looking for a balanced academic and practical programme in an innovative and supportive learning environment.

Our curriculum is informed by the same vitalistic understanding that chiropractic has of the body’s ability to self-regulate, self-organise and self-heal.

New Zealand College of Chiropractic Pillars of Learning

Philosophy (the ‘Why’)

We take a vitalistic approach to chiropractic. We acknowledge the body’s innate ability to heal itself and chiropractic’s role in helping people express optimal health and wellbeing.

Art (the ‘How’)

We teach a wide range of techniques and students get to develop their skills from day one with the guidance of the College’s
first-class mentorship.

Science (the ‘What’)

Our curriculum is continually updated to include the latest research and evidence-based practice. We constantly introduce new technologies and innovative teaching because our faculty are just as passionate as our students.

Entry criteria

Applicants are expected to have performed well academically, have a good understanding of chiropractic and how our philosophy drives our vision of a world of people expressing optimal potential.

Prior to studying at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, you must first complete a minimum of one year of approved prerequisite study in basic health sciences.

Our recommended prerequisite programme is the one-year Diploma in Applied Science (Pre-Chiropractic Pathway) at Auckland University of Technology (AUT).

You don’t need to complete a full undergraduate degree to qualify for entry into our programme. Parts of your undergraduate degree might cover our prerequisite courses, especially in the fields of general, health or medical sciences as well as kinesiology.
