Programme Specification

The Programme Specification for the MChiro is the definitive document for the programme*, and will provide you with information on the aims and intended learning outcomes of the programme, and an outline of curriculum content, assessment methods, and learning and teaching methods.

*Now we have our own taught degree awarding powers we are in the process of approving all our existing programmes as our own awards. When the programme is approved as our award the format of the programme specification will change, but the aims, learning outcomes and programme content will not. As and when the programme is approved the programme specification will be made available from this webpage.
