Osteopathy Degree Funding

Student Loan

If you are from the UK or EU with settled status and you are applying to university for the first time, you don’t have to pay for your course upfront. You can can get a Government loan to pay your tuition fees.

You can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan that will cover the cost of your course. Visit Student Finance England* to get started.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION when applying for the loan you need to select Anglia Ruskin University – Institution Code A60 as the course provider and Masters of Osteopathy MOst – Course Code B310 as the degree.

Part-time students  will study 75 credits and the fee is £5,781.

Full-time students will study 120 credits and the fee is £9,250.


NOTE students who have already completed a degree regardless of whether they have previously taken out a loan who are studying full-time are not eligible for a student loan/

London School of Osteopathy Bursary

All LSO students are entitled to our bursary which is paid each year of your study. In your first year the bursary is not received as a financial payment. Instead the monies are used to pay for the essential items required during your first year including your clinic coat, badge and text books. 

In the subsequent years this is paid in 3 instalments during the academic year.

External Grants & Bursaries

There are a number of organisations across the UK that make awards to students who are in need of financial support. 

We have put together a list of possible funding sources. Some of these are not currently open for applications for 2022 but will be opening applications again later in the year. Each grant has their own eligibility criteria, and it is for students to research if they meet the criteria.

The LSO does not endorse or have any links with the grants listed below and this is simply a resource for students.
