Physiotherapy with Health Foundation Year

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. The course will provide you with the requisite science knowledge, enhance your study skills and give you an introduction to the employability skills required by health professionals. The Health Foundation Year is a well established and successful course which offers progression onto the full range of health degrees at Keele. The Health Foundation Year offers an opportunity for students to enter a degree course in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who do not meet the necessary criteria for direct entry. This is often because they have not studied the subjects required or because they have gained non-traditional qualifications. The programme of modules is tailored to the student’s chosen degree route. After you have completed your Health Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Physiotherapy programme. By the end of this course you will become a competent and flexible practitioner to meet today’s challenges. You will learn how to promote, maintain and restore an individual’s physical, psychological and social well-being through both practical and academic teaching. Physiotherapy plays a vital role in health and social care and provides a range of career paths from practice through to leadership and management roles. Keele will help you develop high levels of academic and professional competence, seeing you study current content and contemporary practice, learning alongside other professions to promote an awareness of present and future demands in health and social care. Our course embraces a vision of patient-centred care within health, social and wider care settings and you will gain invaluable experience in various high quality learning clinical environments. You will study in a supportive environment, encouraging reflection and enriched by research awareness.
