I am halfway through my course and i couldn't be more happy with the career pathway i have choose as i find it to be so rewarding. if you love helping people, i defiantly believe this is the right pathway for you .

Pros- rewarding, happiness you feel when you have helped someone and gain a therapeutic relationship with the client/patient whilst on placement. the friends you make throughout the duration of your course, the skills you learn in labs which is presented as a real life setting (hospital beds, canulas,) and there are manikins you're able to practice on.

Cons - it is a very unorganised uni, unable to rely on your teachers as they never reply to emails and never seem to be interested in wanting to help, with placement you can go a semester without it and be required to do two 4 week blocks over summer break and you find out 2 weeks in advance.. also having 10 hours worth of lectures in 1 day and so much content to cover in an 8 week block!

In saying that - my placement is what is keeping me motivated as well as my peers that are completing the course with me

Positive:
We got to have a lot of practice on our clinical skills within our campus in which made me very confident to work in a hospital setting. I had a lot of support from my tutors and lecturers when I am having difficulties and that helped me pass all my exams and assessments. Learning certain units such a sociology and population health has also influenced and changed my perspective on things in a positive way.

Negatives:
The theory and practical workload can be very difficult to manage and to balance out with our work and social life. The intense weeks of assessments and tests can also be very overwhelming and stressful especially when it is hurdle and needs to be over a certain mark in order to pass. Time management is so important so it was very easy to fall behind.

My advice to future students is: To always be on time and organised. Try to form a study group because you’ll definitely need the help and support to get through the course. Ask a lot of questions and be engaging.

Positive - overall I think it’s a good course. The coursework is relevant and there's a good amount of practical work involved.
The only negative is the campus is far away.

My advice to future students is: Be prepared - it's a long course (for the masters) so stay motivated.

Incredibly intense, averaging 7 units a semester.

Small cohort meant that the lecturers and peers all knew each other really really well. 5 years full time meant that I had a fairly low earning capacity which was difficult, but the course staff were really supportive and understanding.

Osteopathy is a really great career and VU offers the best course in Victoria.

I studied this course due to my interest in human movement thinking that I would find my way to a career path through the 3 years of study. I enjoyed the individual subjects but found the degree in general too broad. This left me still clueless as to what to do with my degree after graduating. I found that I would need to do a Masters in order to be more than an over-educated personal trainer.
