Animal Manipulation (Osteopathy)
The programme is open to applicants who meet the following criteria (pathway specific): A professional qualification in Osteopathy that would qualify the holder for registration with the GOsC. All applicants must: satisfy the interviewers of their aptitude for animal work, provide evidence of an up-to-date tetanus vaccination and provide adequate personal liability insurance and complete an examination on safe handling of animals. For those applicants whose first language is not English, must provide evidence of an IELTS score of 7.0 (with a minimum of 6.5 in each element) or equivalent.
Modules include: Animal Sciences, Clinical Assessment, Clinical Evaluation, Practical & Professional Skills and Research.
Students are assessed by a variety of means appropriate to the programme module. These may include written examination, projects, oral presentation and practical assessment. The aim is to build students' knowledge and confidence so that they may progress through the programme and be ready for final assessment. The demands are both academic and practical and frequently involve the students in considered reflection upon their own experience and development. In the case of the animal programme the expectation is that students will already have a degree or equivalent qualification, and work is at postgraduate level.
The tutorial staff, Programme Leader and Programme Manager closely monitors student progress. Any difficulties encountered by the student are dealt with sensitively and remedial work is undertaken to bring the student up to the required standard. All modules are summatively assessed and constitute an essential part of the programme.
Students are kept fully informed of their progress. Most module assessments can be retaken and an appeals procedure exists for students who wish to make the Examining Board aware of any relevant extenuating circumstances. Special regulations apply to students who fail summative examinations and cost will be incurred if retakes are required. All final results are published and referred to the validating university for confirmation.
Assessment methods are constantly being evaluated and the examining and academic boards review the current methods on a regular basis.
