Royal College of Chiropractors Bursaries for Studies in Evidence-based Practice, Research Methods or Clinical Audit

The Royal College of Chiropractors awards annual bursaries, worth up to £660 each, to enable members to register for Masters-level modules in Research Methods or Evidence-based Practice at little or no cost to themselves.

Applicants can identify any M-level module in EBP, Research Methonds or Clinical Audit whether stand-alone or as part of a larger award thus ensuring maximum flexibility in terms of where, when and how they study. In addition to the value of acquiring and applying new knowledge and skills to clinical practice, the benefits of undertaking one of these modules include:

  • Access to the relevant institution’s online library of full-text journals, and other library facilities and resources, for up to six months
  • M-level credits towards College Membership and Fellowship
  • CPD-hours to satisfy statutory requirements
  • M-level credits towards a PGCert, PGDip or MSc qualifications should applicants wish to extend their studies (if the module is part of a larger award)

Previous recipients of RCC research study bursaries have undertaken stand-alone modules in EBP, clinical audit and/or research methods at institutions including AECC, University of South Wales, University of Hertfordshire and University of Cardiff.

To apply for a bursary (for studies that have already commenced, or are due to commence, between September 2016 and March 2017), please download the application form and rules here for return by email or post.
