Working whilst studying & student budgeting tips

Study and work at the same time

Our four year BSc(Hons) Osteopathy is an undergraduate ‘modified attendance’ degree programme, blending face-to-face/live-streamed and recorded theory lectures with in-person practical classes and clinical experience.

The course is designed for those looking to become a registered Osteopath who need to study flexibly around work/life commitments. It runs over two evenings a week (6-9pm) and one weekend day a month (9am-5.30pm). Additional hours are needed for the completion of essential clinical hours and for optional tutorials.  To find out more visit BSc(Hons) Osteopathy degree.

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.

Many of our students also use their learning of soft tissue techniques in their first year of studies to work as a therapeutic masseuse. After successful completion of the soft tissue techniques lectures, (including passing the examination at the end of Year 1), students should be eligible to obtain insurance with Balens for therapeutic massage.
