Royal College of Chiropractors Bursaries for Studies in Evidence-based Practice or Research Methods.

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 Methods 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.

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