Studying Osteopathy

Rewarding careers in osteopathy are as diverse as the range of patients you will treat.

Southern Cross Scholarships

We're the only university in QLD and NSW to offer Osteopathy

Discover the holistic and preventative approach of diagnosis and manual therapy used to treat musculoskeletal problems and other functional disorders of the body.

You will intimately learn how the human body works and responds, with clinical practice-based learning in a safe and supervised environment at the Southern Cross University Health Clinic, located at our Lismore and Gold Coast campuses.

Hands-on experience in clinical settings

“The highlight of my course has definitely been the clinical component where I’ve been able to treat patients in the student clinic on campus here at Southern Cross University and also observe many other practitioners throughout the local community.”

Why study at Southern Cross University?

At Southern Cross University we're always looking for a better way to do things, that's why we created 'The Southern Cross Model'. By dividing the academic year into six-week terms, with a maximum of two subjects per term, students are better able to focus, dive deeply into the subject matter and really learn. The content is highly interactive, with real-world applications; and it leaves more time for the other things you love.
