Osteopathy Career Paths

The majority of registered osteopaths will work within the private health care sector, due to the growing demand for osteopathy following an increasing public desire for modern, patient-centred care. Some of our graduates become self employed and either work for themselves running a small business or a clinic that is owned by someone else. 



During the four year programme, all students will have a minimum of 1200 hours of clinical practice that they require for registration with the General Osteopathic Council (GOSC).

The clinical placements are included within the weekly timetable throughout the academic year, placements will take place within University associated clinical facilities with clinical mentors.
