learning course £6000 is payable, with subsequent payments spread over each
calendar month after the first 6 months until the end of the course, which is 12

Teaching with a high ratio of tutor to student is necessary to develop osteopathic
skills, and is expensive to deliver. The students fees do not cover the cost of
tutoring, the majority of which is made up by donations the patient make to the
clinic, which is about £5,000 per student over the course. This means that, if a
student decides not to continue with the course for some reason, the cost in lost
income to the College through patient donation lost is significant. For this reason the
College would not be able to refund fees once the student has started the distance
UK General Practitioners may be able to get prolonged study leave and funding for locums during the course, please discuss details with the Course Director.
