In 2017 the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) became the AECC University College, a change in name which denoted new status and an important transition in the institution's development. The AECC University College, formally the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, is the oldest existing chiropractic school in Europe. Many of the chiropractors who practice in Europe today were trained at the AECC and its graduates have been influential in shaping the chiropractic profession not only within Europe, but also globally. Anthony Metcalfe, a graduate of the AECC, served as president of the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) between 2004 and 2006. The current secretary general of the WFC, Richard Brown, is a graduate of the AECC. This paper provides an overview of the history of the School from its origins to the attainment of university college title.
