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 to chat with us in person.

Our Open Days run throughout the year and are a friendly, informal way to get a feel for the UCO and ask any questions you may have. They also offer 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.

"Felt completely at home. Just one look around and I knew it's where I wanted to be" ~ Kaitlin, M.Ost full-time student

If you are unable to make an open day but are keen to visit us please contact us and we'll do our best to accomodate you. We can also arrange clinic observations and taster sessions - contact us to find out more.

Taster Sessions

If you want to get a more in-depth feel for what it is like to be a student at the UCO then we are also happy to organise a bespoke taster day experience for you. Depending on availability this could include sitting in on lectures or technique classes or attending our clinic as an observer. Please note that you will need to be 16+ to take part in some activities.

If you have specific questions or concerns we will also do our best to put you in touch with someone who may be able to help - whether it be a course leader, clinic tutor, member of support staff or a student - either on the day of your visit or via a follow up call or email.

If you'd be interested in a taster session or clinic observation please contact us to discuss this further. It would be helpful if you could provide as much information as possible about any areas you are particularly interested in finding out about so that we can try to accomodate these for you.
