Koulutuksen kuvaus

The curriculum in Osteopathy programme consists of 5 modules, each with a spesific theme. One 15 ects module is elective. The studies also include a 10-credit innovation project, which is carried out in multidisciplinary teams. Requirements for expertise in each competence area help students to set goals for their studies. Requirements for expertise also help students to evaluate the competence they already have and their future learning. Students’ learning process starts by writing a personal study plan (HOPS). This process issupported by competence areas, which provide the framework for the personal study plan. The personal study plan is supported by the recognition of prior competence (AHOT) and flexible individual implementation of studies. Tutors, student counsellors, other teachers and staff support students’ progress in their studies. During osteopathy studies students can participate in various student exchange programmes. Multicultural collaboration is also possible during studies, in different projects, during Metropolias International week and in co-operation with incoming exchange students.
