Letter from the President

Rita Bergeman, London College of Osteopathy's PresidentDear Prospective Student,

Your knowledge and experience are what make you an outstanding health professional. When asked about the merit of education, Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the highest interest.”  

For almost 12 years, the London College of Osteopathy and Health Sciences has delivered osteopathic training to hundreds of professionals worldwide. The dedication of our faculty, the commitment of our staff and our students have made LCO a unique institution that provides high-quality affordable educational programs in manual osteopathy.

LCO offers three tiers of osteopathic education at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Students from diverse professional backgrounds across the world are welcome to apply.

Graduates interested in pursuing a career in manual osteopathy receive academic credits for all six courses towards the Diploma curriculum.
