The osteopathy program Canada has been waiting for — the first of its kind.

Program Overview

Train to become an osteopathic manual practitioner

Study the principles and practices of osteopathy — a growing profession that uses a manual therapy approach to patient care, treating a variety of injuries, illnesses and conditions.

Graduate with more than 1,000 hours of supervised clinical experience

This is the only osteopathy degree in Canada that meets the World Health Organization’s Type 1 standard of 1,000 hours of supervised clinical practice. You will:

  • Start working with patients in Year 1 under supervision in Sheridan's community clinic.
  • Practice alongside peers in our multidisciplinary student clinic.
  • Network with practitioners during three work-integrated learning opportunities in a variety of clinical settings.

A direct path into the growing field of osteopathy

Previous health science education is recommended but not required to enter this degree. If you’ve already completed a health science degree, you may be eligible to start in the second year of this program after completing three bridging courses.

Benefit from Sheridan’s reputation for excellence in health science

Sheridan is well-known for delivering high-calibre applied health programs, including degrees in athletic therapy and kinesiology. In our Honours Bachelor of Science – Osteopathy degree program, you’ll work closely with your peers in small classroom environments as you learn fundamental and advanced health science from professors who have extensive clinical experience.

Opportunities for further education

Upon graduation, you could be eligible for entry into graduate study programs at other institutions, such as:

  • McMaster University: Master of Science – Rehabilitation Science
  • University of British Columbia: Master of Rehabilitation Science
  • Western University: Master in Health & Rehabilitative Sciences
  • Athabasca University: Master of Health Studies

    Advanced Entry Challenge Exams

    Get credit for what you know

    Sheridan recognizes and appreciates that advanced learning doesn’t always require standard classroom instruction, and that opportunities to advance skills and learn new technologies are everywhere.

    Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) and Advanced Standing credits are subject to Sheridan’s policies and procedures. Learn more about Sheridan’s Credit Transfer policies and procedures.

    I have previous postsecondary education. Should I write a Challenge Exam?

    No. Challenge Exams are designed for applicants with knowledge and experience gained outside of formal education.

    Complete a free self-assessment test to help you determine whether Challenge Exams are a good option for you.

    How do I apply to complete a Challenge Exam?

    Step 1: Make sure you meet the program admission requirements

    You must meet the program admission requirements to be eligible for admission and PLAR.

    Step 2: Complete a free self-assessment

    Complete a free self-assessment test for each knowledge stream you wish to challenge. This will help you determine whether your current skills will enable you to succeed in the Challenge Exam(s).

    Step 3: Apply to Sheridan's Computer Systems Technology advanced diploma program

    Apply to the Computer Systems Technology – Software Development and Network Engineering program.

    To be eligible to complete Challenge Exams for this program, you must select "Advanced Entry" as the level of the program on your application.

    Step 4: Follow the instructions to complete your Challenge Exam(s)

    Once Sheridan receives your application, we’ll send you an email with instructions on how to register and pay for your Challenge Exam(s). Follow those instructions.

    Once you’ve completed your Challenge Exam(s), subject matter experts in Sheridan’s Faculty of Applied Science and Technology will evaluate them within 10 business days. The Faculty will forward your results to the Office of the Registrar, and any approved credit transfers will be posted in your Credit Transfer centre. Exam feedback will not be provided.

    Program Summary


    Educational philosophy

    Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design curriculum and its delivery are designed to address current social issues pertinent to the design industry. This enables students to broaden their understanding of their place within the world.

    Fundamental to the vision of the program is the balance of creative and conceptual thinking with the technical and business aspects of the profession. Courses follow a logical sequence with the degree of difficulty building vertically from first year to fourth year.

    The various streams provide a range of design problems building in size and scope, from simple to complex in various design sectors. The curriculum builds on fundamental introductions that ensures a strong foundation for students to apply additional more complex learning and skills developed later in the program.

    Studio projects are designed to mimic professional practice and require applied theory, creativity and strong technical knowledge. Curriculum is also connected horizontally across each semester to help support the learning in courses happening simultaneously. This demonstrates the inter-connected knowledge and skills required to practice in the industry.

    The program provides many opportunities that expose students to practicing professionals and professional practice. Industry leaders and representatives from professional associations like ARIDO and IDC are invited into the classroom as jurors and guest speakers throughout the four years. The internship also provides professional design work experience for students before they enter their final year of study.

    The curriculum is student-centric and designed to equip students with the skills that are required for entry-level design positions and advanced study. Manual skills such as drafting, drawing and model making are developed alongside digital skills using current software. Students are also well-versed in the applicable building codes and regulations required to practice in Ontario. Students are exposed to valuable research skills and encouraged to continue their learning past graduation.

    Program goals

    Sheridan's Honours Bachelor of Interior Design program aspires to:

    • Develop confident, creative and critical thinkers that can solve a variety of problems thoughtfully, improving the quality of the built environment and protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public.
    • Equip students with the tools to think independently and ethically to ensure technically, environmentally, and socially responsible decision-making.
    • Deliver current and relevant curriculum that incorporates equity, diversity and inclusion. This encourages students to create spaces that foster inclusivity and look at design from various perspectives within diverse communities, involving numerous stakeholders.
    • Inform students regarding the various facets of the profession, engaging them with designers and industry affiliates.
    • Encourage continuous professional and personal growth, instilling a desire to contribute to the profession and society at large. The program encourages students to become active participants in the design community, become members of their local Association, write their NCIDQ exams, give back to the community and become progressive leaders in the profession.
    • Prepare graduates for entry-level design positions, equipped with the required knowledge and skills for employment in the diverse design industry, ensuring they possess the body of knowledge necessary to respond to social and environmental issues, while designing interior spaces that are technically proficient, code-compliant, conceptually strong, sustainable and all-inclusive.
    • Provide enhanced opportunities for students to pursue post-graduate studies, employment, research and/or further their academic studies and/or credentials.

    Program Summary


    Writer-in-Residence program

    Each year, Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Creative Writing & Publishing (CW&P) program hosts a Writer-in-Residence. The 8-month residency is awarded to a writer who embodies the distinctiveness and dynamism of the & in our program name.

    In addition to working on at least one specific writing project of their own during their tenure, the Writer-in-Residence is responsible for creative leadership, mentoring and public outreach in the area of creative writing and/or publishing.

    How our Writer-in-Residence supports Sheridan students

    Students in our CW&P program benefit from the work and mentorship of our Writer-in-Residence, who:

    • shares their expertise and experience as a creative professional and working writer;
    • performs public readings from their recently published work and/or current work-in-progress;
    • organizes public lectures and/or workshops; and
    • works with faculty to augment existing curriculum in the area of creative writing, publishing and/or creativity.

    2023–24 Writer-in-Residence

    Kate Cayley, Sheridan's Writer-in-Residence

    Award-winning fiction writer, playwright and poet Kate Cayley is joining Sheridan as the 2023–24 CW&P Writer-in-Residence.

    Cayley has published two short story collections and three collections of poetry, and her plays have been performed in Canada, the U.S. and the UK. She has won the Trillium Book Award, an O. Henry Prize and the Mitchell Prize for Poetry, and been a finalist for the Governor General’s Award for Fiction, the Firecracker Award for Fiction, the ReLit Award for both fiction and poetry, and the K.M. Hunter Award for Fiction.

    Her writing has appeared in such literary publications as Brick, Electric Literature, Joyland, Best Canadian Poetry and Best Canadian Stories, and she has been a writer-in-residence at McMaster University and the Toronto Public Library.

    "Kate’s diverse work plumbs meaning, strangeness and beauty from the spaces we inhabit, even in our domestic lives, while tackling some of the big philosophical questions we all face," says Dr. Genevieve Amaral, Associate Dean, School of Humanities and Creativity. "Our Sheridan community welcomes her capacious intellect, limpid style and wonderful mentorship with full hearts, open ears, and pens, paper and keyboards at the ready!"

    Apprenticeship Exemption Test

    The Apprenticeship Exemption Test (AET) provides a chance for students who are learning a skilled trade to bypass in-class studies.

    In most cases, you need to score 70% or higher to pass the AET. If you score lower than 70%, you'll need to wait three months before you can try again (with some exceptions for certain exams).

    Apprenticeship Exemption Tests are administered at the Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga, through Sheridan's Assessment Centre.

    Learn more about the AET, including eligibility criteria, available tests and how to register.

    Sheridan is a Ministry-approved Apprenticeship Exemption Test centre, authorized through the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training & Skills Development (MLITSD), for both apprentices and non-apprentices.
