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

We believe the best way to decide if a course at the UCO is the right choice for you is to come and visit us and chat with us directly.

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. These events also offer you the chance to see our facilities, including the UCO Clinic; to chat to teaching staff, current students and practicing osteopaths, and to get useful information and advice on applying and career opportunities.

Open Days are free to attend but can be very popular, so we ask that you register in advance to let us know you are coming. Feel free to bring along family or friends who may be able to help you with your decision.

"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

Upcoming Open Days​

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.

Our upcoming open days are: 

Tuesday 8th December 2020: 11am - 1pm

Tuesday 12th January 2021: 11am - 1pm

Tuesday  9th February 2021: 11am - 1pm

You can book onto our open days via our booking form which can be found here: Book onto our open day!
