Course Detail

The BSc (Hons) Osteopathy course is a dynamic programme taught by expert and enthusiastic staff. It gives students exposure to a wide range of approaches to osteopathy and this is reflected in a diverse teaching team who are graduates from the different osteopathic teaching institutions. This ensures students receive both expert teaching as well as an osteopathic curriculum that is engaging and up to date.

It is a well-established programme at Nescot run by the highly respected Osteopathy Department who have over 10 years’ experience of delivering osteopathic education. The programme attracts both national and international osteopaths with a Diploma level qualification who are interested in achieving an academic top-up or conversion to BSc.

It is of particular interest to European Diploma osteopaths who wish to gain a University validated award in order to achieve greater recognition and progress to University study in their home country.

The programme has been designed to address both academic and professional needs by integrating academic learning with the needs of the working professional osteopath.

The BSc (Hons) Osteopathy is a one-year programme during which time a research proposal is completed. Students are supported by tutors and Weblearn; a robust on-line learning environment, which provides lecture presentations and hand-outs, links to online journals and e-books, programme handbooks, upload links for assessments, academic forums and a record of tutorials
