The University of South Wales is a popular choice amongst International students and we have been welcoming students from Norway to our three campuses for many years.

Norwegian students study a wide range of courses including:

MChiro Chiropractic.
Chiropractic Foundation Year for any students who do not meet entry requirements for direct entry to MChiro Chiropractic.

The Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University has an excellent working relationship with the chiropractic profession and enjoys close links with the British Chiropractic Association and the College of Chiropractors, as well as many other international chiropractic organisations. The University was the first in the UK to offer an integrated undergraduate degree programme accredited by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC).

For more information about our all our Chiropractic courses please download our Chiropractic course brochure. You can also take a look at a video of some of the Chiropractic treatments undertaken by some of our Senior Chiropractic students at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic (WIoC) based on our Treforest campus. These include lower back pain rehab, a spinal X-ray and a spinal examination.

Other popular courses include Music and Psychlogy.
