AECC TDAP and Institutional Designation
The RCC Council is delighted to congratulate the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) following its recent achievement of Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP). This will enable the institution to independently validate and award bachelors degrees and taught postgraduate degrees. AECC has also achieved Institutional Designation, which provides eligibility to receive HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council, England) funding and ensures eligible students will receive funding through the Student Loan Company for the degree programmes AECC offers. It is understood AECC will now apply for a new ‘University College’ name to reflect its widening role as a provider not only of chiropractic awards but of other awards in the field of healthcare.
The achievements of TDAP and Institutional Designation are highly significant, representing Government recognition of the high quality of AECC’s management, governance and educational provision. They represent major milestones in the development of UK chiropractic education.
