Recognition of Prior Learning

We welcome enquiries from those who have studied at a higher level in a related field

Direct entry into Year 2 or Year 3 may be an option for those who have already studied toward an equivalent osteopathic qualification.  Candidates who wish to be considered for this will need to complete our ‘Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning’ (APL) process, which involves mapping modules from previous studies against the ESO course modules. You can view the ESO’s APL Policy & Procedure here.

Applicants who have studied in a related field (Physiotherapy, Sports Science etc) may be eligible for module exemption.

To find out more email admissions@eso.ac.uk.

Please DO NOT submit an application for Direct Entry through UCAS at this stage, as we will need to make an informal assessment of your eligibility to apply beforehand.
