Do I have to take exams?
Yes and no. This depends on the chosen education program. If you follow the courses without taking exams, you’ll just receive a certificate of attendance. In order to receive a PGCert in Sports Osteopathy, you’ll have to take and pass one practical exam per year, and have to write an essay on a clinical case. The MSc.Ost. diploma goes with the same assignments, plus a dissertation.
Do I have to make a dissertation?
That depends on the chosen education program. You’ll receive an official PGCert in Sports Osteopathy once you’ve attended all the courses and successfully passed the exams. The unique MSc.Ost. diploma is only granted by Bucks University once you’ve written and defended an additional dissertation.
Are there any entry requirements?
This education is only open for graduated osteopaths, with a DO-title as a minimum. Since the entire education is in English, a B2 level of the English language is expected. For Belgian osteopaths, the BVBO requires us to have an approval number, starting with 090/095 or to be an “in-transition” member.
How many accreditation points do these modules get?
The NOF accredited the first 7 modules with 112 points. The requests have been made to the other authorities, we are eagerly awaiting their decision.
