Student life at the BSO combines a real sense of community and a lively atmosphere of a university with the freedom and variety that comes with living in central London.
We have an active Student Union at the BSO who organise various social events throughout the year. Notable events include End of Term parties and Sports Day with rival osteopathic schools.
As a new student, you can look forward to debating with the Manus Sinistra society, doing yoga, learning martial arts skills, playing various sports such as rugby and football and much more. Whatever your hobbies and interests, it is likely that you will find lots to do at the BSO.
The Teaching Centre has a number of facilities available for students including:
Our teaching centre at The British School of Osteopathy is situated in the lively area of Borough which is just a 10 minute walk from London Bridge. Located just south of the new Shard skyscraper and the beautiful South Bank of the River Thames, Borough has a unique atmosphere that combines the old with the new and the lively with the tranquil. Other nearby attractions include Borough Market, Ministry of Sound, The London Bridge Experience & Tombs, Southwark Cathedral, Escape Rooms and the Clink Prison Museum.
From the famous farmers' and artisan foods market, to traditional greasy spoon cafes to international cuisine, there is no shortage of places to eat. We are also spoilt for choice when it comes to watering holes, with a plethora of old school British pubs, wine bars and live music venues.
Borough is within walking distance of landmark attractions such as the Shakespeare's Globe, the South Bank Centre and the Tate Modern. Just over the river, is the City of London, St Paul's and easy access to Shoreditch and Soho.
