Physiotherapy

Our BSc(Hons) Physiotherapy course is accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the CSP, which means you can register as a physiotherapist with both once you graduate – something you’ll need to do to practise in this field. With work-based training built in, and outstanding onsite facilities, you’ll learn what constitutes good physiotherapeutic practice and explore the theories and subjects that influence it. Develop a holistic approach to your practice and learn from an inspirational, supportive team with a depth of physiotherapy experience in many areas. Discover how to work with patients, their families and other healthcare professionals to support rehabilitation and wellbeing – developing your inter-professional and interpersonal skills. The course has a strong practical focus, incorporating case-based learning and opportunities to engage with patients and professionals on placements, in class and online. You’ll spend about a third of your time on placements in the NHS, and with specialist independent and voluntary sector employers, in a mix of environments. Add international experience to your degree by working with our partner Lapin AMK in Finland or the University of the Arctic Circle in Tromso (Norway) through Erasmus. Physiotherapists are in demand across the UK, so you could work in a hospital or the community for the NHS or independent sector, in private practice, in sports and leisure centres, or for private or voluntary sector employers.
