Earn an income whilst studying
As long as it doesn’t take up too much study time, finding a part-time job is a great way to gain more money, less debt, and new skills for your CV.
There are plenty of places to work local to the BCOM London campus, for example some of our students are administrative staff in local osteopathic clinics, some students work in the local leisure centre, gyms, restaurants and cafes. We are often asked to advertise seasonal jobs to our graduates too so there is plenty of work available.

Find out how to budget and save money while studying, to help your student loan go further.

“I chose to study Osteopathy because I am passionate about the human body and I am also passionate about helping people… Ever since starting to study here the staff have been brilliant and I have enjoyed every step of the journey.”
“Being a member of a smaller university ensures I am not just a number. I can approach any member of staff and they know exactly who I am; making the whole university experience tailored and personal to me.”
"This degree taught me so much about osteopathic treatment, naturopathy, nutrition and soft tissue, which made the course extremely fulfilling.
BCOM’s facilities are highly accessible, the lecturers are easy to approach and are always looking for new and interesting ways to teach their subject.
What made my experience at BCOM so special is the fact that the students are always there to support each other – and I was pleased to help new students throughout the course, sharing my personal experience and advice."
"My experience at BCOM has been life-changing in so many ways. I have changed immeasurably as an individual and owe this to the incredible experience I’ve had at BCOM.
The lecture schedule and content are phenomenal, gradually introducing you to the body and concepts of Osteopathy, flowing seamlessly into clinical practice and leaving as fully competent and qualified Osteopaths!
The student support has been great; there is always someone to go to for advice, feedback, or to answer a burning question.
BCOM, in my opinion offers the most comprehensive osteopathic education, which is one of the reasons I chose BCOM and I never looked back.
I had the confidence and skill to strike out on my own from the start and have the luxury within the Osteopathic profession to be my own boss and create a life and career that is perfectly catered to me.”
“Studying at BCOM has been one of the best decisions I could’ve made! The close-knit community at BCOM allows for more student-faculty interaction, personal tutors/support and my contributions to the community fabric of the smaller institution feel a lot more meaningful. I cannot wait for what lies ahead in my future studies here, and I know that when I graduate, I will have formed a closely tied alumni circle who will play a strong role in helping me reach my academic and professional goals."
