This course is accredited by The National School of Healthcare and Science, The Registration Council for Clinical Physiology, and The Association for Respiratory Technology and Physiology. Our BSc in Respiratory and Sleep Physiology will give you the expert training you need to begin a rewarding career working with doctors and other healthcare professionals to diagnose and treat people with respiratory disease and sleep-related breathing disorders.
Studying the structure and functions of the respiratory system, together with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, you will combine in-depth academic work with practical clinical and technological skills in a range of specialised healthcare settings.
Respiratory and Sleep Physiology is an exciting field that requires a high level of responsibility, accuracy, and problem-solving ability. As a respiratory and sleep physiologist, you will work with patients of all ages and disabilities, performing a wide range of diagnostic tests and developing treatment plans. Our excellent facilities in the College of Human and Health Sciences include a realistic clinical suite so you can put your theoretical knowledge into practice in an environment that reflects as closely as possible the actual conditions that you will experience when you go on placement.
On graduation, you will be eligible to join the voluntary register with the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists and enter the workplace as an independent practitioner.
