On this course you will master the skills, knowledge and professional behaviours you need to work as a physiotherapist. We will use a problem-based approach as you study. This means you will work with your classmates to solve physiotherapy problems.
We will guide you to become a competent and reflective practitioner who takes responsibility for your continued professional development. You will learn to deliver ethical and effective physiotherapy services in different healthcare settings. Some of the things you will study include:
- Human anatomy and physiology
- Professionalism in healthcare
- Exercise therapy
- Movement analysis
- Musculoskeletal conditions
- Cardiovascular respiratory and neurological conditions
You will apply your learning on professional placements each year. Experienced Physiotherapists will supervise you as you complete 1000 hours of placement in different clinical, health and social care settings. This will give you experience working across the profession, with different conditions and patients. During Year 2 there is also the opportunity to complete your placement abroad. This is a great chance to experience a different healthcare system, meet new friends and make lifelong memories.
This degree is accredited by the CSP and validated by the HCPC. This means when you successfully complete the course you will meet the requirements for registration with both organisations. This will allow you to practise under the title of Chartered Physiotherapist.
