The European School of Osteopathy is known internationally for high quality osteopathic education, at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
The European School of Osteopathy (ESO) has a long tradition of establishing successful academic relationships with international partners all over the world and has contributed to the development and growth of many osteopathic schools and practises throughout Europe. The School is a key contributor to organisations such as OsEAN as we look to ensure high standards of osteopathic standards internationally.
The School is renowned for its broad range of osteopathic approaches and it has a rich history of innovation and inclusiveness; modern visceral osteopathy began at the ESO under pioneers such as Jean-Pierre Barrell and the School was the first to introduce balanced ligamentous and spinal and pelvic joint muscle energy techniques to Europe from the USA. It was the first to teach and practise paediatric osteopathy, the first to include indirect and cranial approaches at undergraduate level and, more recently, first to welcome ‘Still techniques’ to Europe.
This breadth of approaches allows ESO-trained osteopaths to help a wider range of patients and enriches their professional lives.
Our international faculty offers an excellent calibre of highly experienced tutors, many of whom have specialised interest and are leaders in their field; specialisms may include paediatrics and maternity care, cranial, visceral and neurological approaches and, of course, structural techniques. Most of our international faculty also lecture on the ESO’s four-year Integrated Masters degree programme (the M.Ost) and have practical experience of tutoring within our established teaching clinic as well as working in the academic environment.

The UK was the first country in Europe to regulate osteopathy and it is still one of the few countries in the world where osteopathy has statutory recognition. As a regulated profession, UK training providers must be approved and undergo regular inspections to ensure standards are maintained; our international students can be confident in receiving a high quality education.
