1. Masterclass Pathway (MCP) – online and practical clinics
£1999 if paid in FULL at the time of purchase. This will include 16 modules of online learning via our new Teachable platform, sessional webinars (via Click Meeting) with our senior lecturer, Eleanor Andrews to discuss relevant topics and osteopathic considerations. This offers students the opportunity to learn about the challenges and sticking points in their understanding, and to hear from an experienced clinical practitioner who works osteopathically with horses every day. In additional you will receive access to our private online community to communicate with your fellow students PLUS 3 consecutive practical days (in the UK).
If a student is required to attend the Day 0 practical, additional fees will apply (circa £230/student). For all practical days, travel and accommodation will be at the students own expense. AOI will provide a light lunch on the full days of practicum (unless in the case of those with food allergies or specialist preferences, where we ask you to bring your own food, as a matter of safety). MCP students also get first refusal on all practical dates, via a VIP early bird booking form which is sent to your inbox. This gives you 7 days in which to accept access onto the next practical clinic, in advance of all other students.
Please note: The Masterclass Pathway is internally validated by the European School of Osteopathy & AOI collectively.
2. Online Enhanced Interaction Pathway (OEIP) – online without practical clinics
£1399 if paid in FULL at the time of purchase. This will include 14 modules of online learning via our new Teachable platform, sessional webinars (via Click Meeting) with our senior lecturer, Eleanor Andrews to discuss relevant topics and osteopathic considerations. This offers students the opportunity to learn about the challenges and sticking points in their understanding and to hear from an experienced clinical practitioner who works osteopathically with horses every day. In addition, you will receive access to our private online community to communicate with your fellow students.
If a student on this pathway wishes to add the practical days to their package at a later date, they may do so. The 3 day practical clinic must be attended in full (without exception). The fee to attend the clinic is an additional £750. This must be paid in full at least one month before the start of the event. OEI students that are required to attend Day 0 (see above for more details), will be required to pay an additional £250. Additional costs incurred through travel, accommodation and food for these events will be at the students own expense. Please note: Our clinics are run with excellent tutor:student ratio. As a result, once they are full, you will have to wait for the next event to be released before your practical dates can be confirmed. MCP students will be given first refusal of all practical dates, so as an OEIP student you may not always be able to attend the exact dates you want. This is a risk you take as an OEIP student.
3. Online Only Pathway – no clinical interaction, communication platform or webinars
£999 if paid in FULL at the time of purchase. This pathway is only suitable for students who already have experience with equine therapeutics and an understanding of osteopathic concepts and philosophy.It can also suit non-professionals who wish to learn more about osteopathy and horses for their own interest but never intend to practice on other people’s animals. There are no upgrade options at any point, so please think carefully before choosing this pathway, if your intension is to use it as part of a new career path. No certification will be given for this pathway, as there is no way for the AOI to ascertain your level of knowledge or learning.
Flexible payments are available via our online teaching platform.This will allow students to spread the cost of the course over 6 separate payments. This will allow students to pay over the first six months of the course (which is the standard duration that we will expect a student to take). As payments are made, the course leader will release the appropriate number of modules, so that they are available to you. Flexible payments are available on all the pathways for an additional 5% of the total course fees.

As the AOI has been explicit about the content of this course and has been clear about the types of students that it will best suit (or not) we do not expect there to be a need to refund your money. However, if you are particularly unhappy with the course, for reasons that were not clear to you beforehand, we will refund the cost of the course at any time within the first 30 days minus any costs incurred to AOI, such as transfers/transactions and administration costs.
