INSTITUTION PROFILE
Name of the Education Provider ASOMI COLLEGE OF SCIENCES
Institution License Status Licensed, with License number: 2020-009
Brief Profile of the Education Provider The ASOMI College of Sciences is based on the experience of an educational model that combines the effectiveness of the training developed within the academic context.

Our goal is to provide innovative educational models that can develop effective results and grant quality to students, professionals and people who have decided to implement their education, building a learning environment in which they become the protagonists of the learning experience.
We develop a pathway that transfers knowledge, strengthens it and transforms it into skills, allowing people to achieve concrete results.

Our vision is to increase synergies, which take resources from decades of experience, results on the field, and academic partnerships and accreditations such as the one with a renowned British institution, the Swansea University.

The ACS project addresses its educational offer at national and international level by developing academic partnerships able to provide opportunities for the enrichment of its students.

The lecturers and mentors, involved in the projects and educational activities, have acquired an important professional reputation and will make their expertise available to learners. In fact, in each academic path, professionals of recognised value and ability will take part as lecturers and through a blended education model (residential in-house and e-learning). We will provide a product that is intended to be pragmatic and grounded, but also aware of the importance of innovation.
The attention regarding the international guidelines in the educational environment finds its place in a pathway fully designed to meet the students’ aims and expectations.
ACS develops its work considering its students, collaborators and staff at the centre of the training process giving them new opportunities and investing in their growth, training and development. Particular attention is given to all the processes of inclusiveness and equality of treatment, regarding both students and staff.
Therefore, ACS will set and develop a qualified staff that will correctly comply with the management of the administrative activities necessary to offer a wide range of services to students and the ability to be highly responsive and operating in any kind of situation.

Learning Outcomes for Knowledge obtained at the end of the programme The learner will be able to:

  • Manage presentation techniques with efficacy and simplicity
  • Write fluently in English about all the topics that characterise the programme
  • Explain technical topics to a non-technical audience
  • Communicate with the patient showing comprehension and awareness
  • Write a scientific piece of work (including the concepts of paraphrasing, summarising, synthesizing, and referencing)

Learning Outcomes for Skills obtained at the end of the programme The learner will be able to:

  • Outline the anatomy and physiology of the human body
  • Apply safely the main osteopathic techniques
  • Discuss the implications of the osteopathic treatment
  • Compare different techniques and approaches in order to best encounter patients’ needs
  • Evaluate own learning in order to improve knowledge and skills
  • Collaborate with other professionals in the health field
  • Supervise a clinical case, from the history taking to the treatment
General Pedagogical methods used for this programme We will provide a programme that will be delivered allowing the students to experience both the theoretical knowledge and the practical side.

Osteopathy is a practical profession and the programme that leads to it needs to adapt accordingly to his necessity.

For this reason, theoretical subjects will be taught with face-to-face lectures, while practical subjects will be taught directly practicing the techniques that are required by the learning outcomes of the programme.

The students will have the possibility of learning directly with the lecturer the main subjects related to the osteopathic profession, during the lectures and practice hours and, later, during the internship.

The support of a VLE will complete this model of education.

The facilities are directly in agreement with the institution, so the student won’t need to search for it.

The hours will be available according to the programme.

The facilities are directly in agreement with the institution.

Each student can choose among the accredited institutions where to undertake the internship for each of the internship modules of the programme.

The internship can be undertaken in the same venue, or in different venues.

The  objective  of  the  internship  is  to  enable  the  student  to  implement  the  practical,  theoretical  and methodological  tools  acquired  during  the  course  of  study,  to  identify  and  implement  skills  necessary  to consolidate their professional training.

The  placement  will  proceed  under  the  direct  supervision  of  the  Clinical  Educator.

The  student  must  follow  the  instructions  and directions  given  by  the  CE  and  his/her  colleagues.

The duties and responsibilities are descripted in the Memorandum of Understanding stipulated with the venue of the internship.

The student will practice during practice hours of the practical subjects and then will experience the internship in the facilities in agreement with the institution.

The internship hours need to be completed in order to access the next internship module (from one year to the other).

All the internship modules and hours need to be completed in order to complete the programme and obtain the degree.

The internship and the programme can be undertaken fully in Malta (100% in Malta) or the student can decide to undertake one or more modules of internship abroad, in the accredited venues, as following (the percentages refer to the total amount of credits of the programme):

  • 98% Malta + 2% abroad
  • 96% Malta + 4% abroad
  • 94% Malta + 6% abroad
  • 92% Malta + 8% abroad
  • 90% Malta + 10% abroad
  • 88% Malta + 12% abroad
  • 86% Malta + 14% abroad

Progression of the programme:

In order to access the next academic year the students should have obtained all the credits expected from the programme.

In order to access the 2nd year the student need to have achieved 60 credits during the 1st year. This applies to the four years of the programme.

General Assessment Methods For the theoretical subjects the assessment is held at the end of the progress of the hours of teaching provided by the course pathway.
It consists of a written test (which includes closed-ended questions and open-ended questions).
If the written exam is passed, the student can access the oral exam (when necessary).

Regarding the practical subjects the assessment strategies are different:

  • written test (divided into sections, one for each subject, including both closed-ended and open-ended questions)
  • oral examination
  • practical assessment (during which we evaluate all the techniques)
