We welcome EU and International students and are happy to consider students with overseas qualifications. 

There are a wide variety of qualifications which can prepare you for a career in osteopathy. 

In general, we look for qualifications which are A-Level equivalent such as the International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureate, Italian Diploma di Marturita or di Esame di Stato, German Abitur and Irish Leaving Certificate. However, we do consider applications on a case-by-case basis, so please contact us if you are unsure whether your qualifications are suitable.

Applicants may be asked to provide an official translation of certificates if they are accepted onto the course.
