Our Osteopathy degree/integrated Masters - accredited by the General Osteopathic Council - is the only course of its kind in the northern half of the UK. It's ideal if you need something that's flexible to accommodate your career/family commitments. Two virtually identical programmes delivered in Stoke and in London, with the option to transfer between the two. Delivered in partnership with the College of Osteopaths, this course is the UK's only 100 per cent part-time pathway into osteopathy. The College of Osteopaths is a small specialist not-for-profit educational institution. It has a 70-year history of preparing students for osteopathic practice via part-time study. Our students come from a range of backgrounds. Many have a full-time or part-time job. Several have family commitments. Whether you have a degree in another subject, or no formal qualifications since leaving school, you'll be a capable learner - particularly in the science subjects - and you'll be comfortable with the hands-on aspect of osteopathic skills. You'll be taught over 18 weekends spread across each academic year. You'll also complete 1200 hours of clinic-based learning throughout the course. We have excellent student-teacher ratios, so you'll get to know your tutors well. To help you to accommodate your other commitments, we're flexible about when you attend the osteopathic teaching clinic. It's open on weekdays, evenings and some Saturdays, so you can choose a time that suits. The clinic is run by experienced tutors and is open to members of the public. You'll combine clinic-based learning with classroom learning, self-directed home study, peer group learning and practical sessions. And you'll be assessed in a range of different ways - from clinic-based assessments, to written exams, coursework, critical appraisal and presentations. In addition to tuition fees, students are asked to purchase some clinical equipment such as a clinic coat, diagnostic testing kit, anatomical models, plus DBS certificate.

Graduate destinations

Our Osteopathy graduates follow a number of different pathways: Self-employed in own practice or as an associate in another practice As part of a consortium of osteopaths under contract to an NHS Primary Care Trust Employed in an established osteopathic practice or multidisciplinary health centre Occupational healthcare department of a large corporation Working for a professional sports club or for elite performers (e.g. a dance company) Employed in higher education (e.g. osteopathic lecturer or researcher) Some graduates go on to take post-graduate qualifications or a doctorate Some move into equine or canine osteopathy.

Today more than ever, quantitative skills form an essential basis for successful careers in ecology, conservation, and animal and human health. Read more
Today more than ever, quantitative skills form an essential basis for successful careers in ecology, conservation, and animal and human health. This Masters programme provides specific training in data collection, modelling and statistical analyses as well as generic research skills. It is offered by the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine (IBAHCM), a grouping of top researchers who focus on combining field data with computational and genetic approaches to solve applied problems in epidemiology and conservation.

Why this programme

-This programme encompasses key skills in monitoring and assessing biodiversity critical for understanding the impacts of environmental change.
-It covers quantitative analyses of ecological and epidemiological data critical for animal health and conservation.
-You will have the opportunity to base your independent research projects at the University field station on Loch Lomond (for freshwater or terrestrial-based projects); Millport field station on the Isle of Cumbria (for marine projects); or Cochno farm in Glasgow (for research based on farm animals). We will also assist you to gain research project placements in zoos or environmental consulting firms whenever possible.
-The uniqueness of the programme is the opportunity to gain core skills and knowledge across a wide range of subjects, which will enhance future career opportunities, including entrance into competitive PhD programmes. For example, there are identification based programmes offered elsewhere, but most others do not combine practical field skills with molecular techniques, advanced informatics for assessing biodiversity based on molecular markers, as well as advanced statistics and modelling. Other courses in epidemiology are rarely ecologically focused; the specialty in IBAHCM is understanding disease ecology, in the context of both animal conservation and implications for human public health.
-You will be taught by research-active staff using the latest approaches in quantitative methods, sequence analysis, and practical approaches to assessing biodiversity, and you will have opportunites to actively participate in internationally recognised research. Some examples of recent publications lead by students in the programme: Blackburn, S., Hopcraft, J. G. C., Ogutu, J. O., Matthiopoulos, J. and Frank, L. (2016), Human-wildlife conflict, benefit sharing and the survival of lions in pastoralist community-based conservancies. J Appl Ecol. doi:10.1111/1365-2664.12632. Rysava, K., McGill, R. A. R., Matthiopoulos, J., and Hopcraft, J. G. C. (2016) Re-constructing nutritional history of Serengeti wildebeest from stable isotopes in tail hair: seasonal starvation patterns in an obligate grazer. Rapid Commun. Mass Spectrom., 30:1461-1468. doi: 10.1002/rcm.7572. Ferguson, E.A., Hampson, K., Cleaveland, S., Consunji, R., Deray, R., Friar, J., Haydon, D. T., Jimenez, J., Pancipane, M. and Townsend, S.E., 2015. Heterogeneity in the spread and control of infectious disease; consequences for the elimination of canine rabies. Scientific Reports, 5, p. 18232. doi: 10.1038/srep18232.
-A unique strength of the University of Glasgow for many years has been the strong ties between veterinarians and ecologists, which has now been formalised in the formation of the IBAHCM. This direct linking is rare but offers unique opportunities to provide training that spans both fundamental and applied research.
