Our degree courses prepare you to become fully-fledged, general osteopathic practitioners in just four years (or six years by part-time study). However, there are many facets of osteopathy that you may choose to develop further as your career progresses. Examples include specialising in working with children or the elderly, or in sports and rehabilitation. Other career opportunities include teaching and research.

Most graduates choose to become self-employed, and value the flexibility this affords them in terms of working patterns, and work-life balance. Earnings vary, with associates averaging £35,000, and approximately 10% of osteopaths earning over £100,000 (figures from the Institute of Osteopathy 2014 Census).
