British School of Osteopathy Open Day
If you're interested in studying osteopathy, there is no better way to find out about the BSO than to come along to one of our Open Days. The aim for these events is to give you a realistic impression of what studying osteopathy at the BSO is like - you'll get a tour of our teaching centre and clinic, get a feel for the area, find out more about studying at the School and discover whether a course in osteopathy is right for you. Our staff and students will be available to answer all your queries.
“The most interesting parts of the course were the electives in the fourth year and also time spent in clinic – especially the external clinics that the BSO runs. I had the opportunity to work with babies, children, pregnant women, within a hospital, a community centre, a residential home and doing home visits. Really quite remarkable! In fact I’m not sure how I fit it all in!!!?” Nancy Monk, recent graduate
Our Open Days are designed for all students wishing to learn more about the BSO and applying for one of our Foundation, Undergraduate (full time or part time) or Postgraduate degree courses. You'll be able to find out more about our the way we support our students, including support with disabilities, help for international students and the support we can give to those who need intensive science qualifications.
An important aspect to our open days is the opportunity for you to talk to our current students - they are the best people to give you impartial views about the School. They can talk to you about why they chose the BSO, and their views about the teaching and resources available here. They are also the best people to tell you about life as a BSO student in London - and the events and activities that our Student Union organise. Equally our staff team includes many osteopaths who are in private practice in addition to their teaching role - so they are in a great position to talk to you about what a career as an osteopath might mean to you.
If you would like to attend one of our events, please register for a ticket above and select which date you would like to visit us. If the dates listed aren't convenient for any reason, please call us and we will try and find another date that may be possible.
Friends and family are really welcome to attend with you on the day - you can select when you register for your ticket how many guests you would like to accompany you. We know that it can be really helpful to have another person's perspective when making a decision about your future studies and career. And if you need help planning your journey, or need accommodation around your event, please let us know and we'll help if we can.
“My aim for when I finished the course was to work in a multidisciplinary practice who work together to ensure that the patient is at the centre and receives all the support they need to be happy, healthy and pain free. This I have achieved. That first moment you realise you are an osteopath, treating a patient and getting paid for it is very special.” Margaret Sinclair, recent graduate
