Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy plays a key role in enabling people to improve their health, wellbeing and quality of life and is a very rewarding career. This demanding, full-time programme teaches you how to diagnose and holistically treat a wide variety of clinical problems and is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). Successful completion of this course will ensure you are eligible to apply for initial registration as a Physiotherapist with the HCPC and for full membership of the CSP. Combining university based and practical based modules you’ll complete approximately 1,000 hours of assessed clinical practice. The Physiotherapy programme is committed to the values and principles of the NHS Constitution and these are integral to our course delivery. The approaches to delivery and the content of our programme aim to foster a culture which embraces the NHS Values of: Working together for patients; Respect and dignity; Commitment to quality of care; Compassion; Improving lives and, everyone counts. The majority of our graduates take up employment within the NHS, some work in private practice and others continue their study at postgraduate level. You’ll have the opportunity to apply for the chance to develop your clinical skills in practice in a variety of locations including Blackburn Rovers Academy. We’ve also had students on placement in Florida, whilst many spend a week at UCLan’s Cyprus campus.
