Deciding where and what to study can be a big decision, with lots of factors to consider.

Our open days run throughout the year and are a friendly, informal way to get a feel for the university and ask any questions you may have. They provide a valuable opportunity to find out more about our courses, services and facilities, and to meet and chat to teaching staff, current students and practicing osteopaths. We welcome any questions you may have about studying at the UCO, the application process or about osteopathy as a profession. Currently our open days are being held virtually but we aim to provide opportunities to visit and tour the UCO when we are able to do so.

Our open days are free but can be very popular, so we ask that you register in advance to let us know you plan to attend. Family or friends are welcome to attend with you.

"The Open Day gave me a real insight into osteopathy and confirmed that I’d be studying osteopathy at university. It also showed me the great teaching facilities and community feel that the UCO had to offer. My advice to you is, make sure you come to an Open Day - to truly see if it is for you. You have to visit the university, no websites or prospectuses can match that!" ~ Sarah, Open Day attendee

We are currently unable to run our usual in-person open days at the UCO. However, you can still find out more about osteopathy, the UCO, and all the support we can offer you if you choose to study with us. With that in mind, we will be running our open days online, which is a fantastic opportunity for you to meet key members of staff and student ambassadors, as well as learn more about the course and ask any key questions or queries you may have.
