The European School of Osteopathy is a high profile institution that is recognised throughout the world-wide osteopathic community as a centre of osteopathic excellence. The School operates from two sites:
The academic site at Boxley, a beautiful 17th century country manor house, is where the majority of lectures take place: It is set in 17 acres of parkland in an area of outstanding natural beauty, providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere conducive to study. There are 5 teaching rooms, equipped with modern adjustable couches for use in practical classes, with one room that is used for theory lectures only. All classrooms are equipped with a range of teaching resources, including ceiling mounted projection and audio units to aid the teaching environment. Boxley houses the School’s well equipped modern library. There is a large, free car park, sufficient for all students and staff parking, along with sheltered cycle racks. A canteen and dining area is available. The canteen offers freshly prepared food on a daily basis, with a vegetarian option always provided; the canteen is subsidised by the School so meals are available at affordable prices and snacks and drinks can be purchased throughout the day. In the summer students can eat outside on the large patio, where they can enjoy the pleasant surroundings. There is plenty of space at Boxley to relax. A common room is provided for student use, which houses lockers where belongings can be left securely and students can play table tennis and pool. During the summer months students take advantage of the spacious grounds to play volleyball, football and other sporting activities. Some students prefer to use their lunch breaks for running and the public footpaths that cross the property are ideal for this. Of course, most prefer just to stroll through the grounds or relax in the shade of one of the numerous trees. There is a riding school located within 10 minutes’ walk from the School, with plenty of bridle paths for the more experienced rider. Shower facilities are available for student use.
