Studying chiropractic

Macquarie University, located in Sydney Australia, offers students an opportunity to undertake internationally recognized undergraduate and postgraduate studies in chiropractic. As one of the few universities worldwide offering chiropractic education up to PhD level, students can be assured of the highest standard of quality.

Like Canada, few post-secondary institutions in Australia offer chiropractic programs. Macquarie University is the only OzTREKK university that offers a program in this area.

The Master of Chiropractic degree offered at the Macquarie Chiropractic School is comparable to Doctor of Chiropractic programs at chiropractic schools in Canada and in the United States. The added bonus for Canadian students is the transferability of the Australian Master of Chiropractic degree for those who wish to return home to practice in Canada. Additionally, Macquarie University has competitive international student tuition fees in comparison to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College’s program fees.
