About the McTimoney College of Chiropractic

For over 50 years, we’ve been training chiropractors so they can help others.

The McTimoney College of Chiropractic offers a number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes delivered from its premises just outside Oxford, central Manchester, Madrid and Hong Kong.

The McTimoney College of Chiropractic is part of the College of Health and its degrees are awarded by Ulster University.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the McTimoney College of Chiropractic is to educate and train students to be competent in the science, art and philosophy of chiropractic, in order to benefit patients.

Evolution and Excellence

The College began as the Oxfordshire School of Chiropractic in 1972, under the visionary guidance of John McTimoney. By training a small number of pupils, he aimed to increase the availability of the treatment he had developed and to ensure that his techniques would not be lost.

In 1982, after John McTimoney’s death, the school was taken over by three of his original pupils. They developed a programme covering basic sciences and philosophy as well as the important skill of adjusting with extreme accuracy and speed. The school catered for the mature student with ‘life experience’ and some understanding of the problems that their patients might bring to them.

As time passed, the demand for chiropractic training continued to rise. Students at the College now have the opportunity to enrol in the chiropractic degree programmes dedicated to people, children and animals.

Today, the McTimoney College of Chiropractic stands as a testament to its founder’s vision and has blossomed from its humble beginnings of just eight students taught in John McTimoney’s own home into a thriving institution of higher education comprising of four campuses in three countries! It continues to uphold its commitment to excellence, ensuring that the legacy of John McTimoney lives on.
