Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

With accreditation from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health & Care Professions Council, your course will provide you with the necessary expertise and skills to become a qualified physiotherapist.

As a physiotherapist, you will help people of all ages to manage pain and dysfunction. Covering the core areas of neuromusculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory and neurological physiotherapy, you will learn how to think independently and problem solve in a clinical capacity. You will acquire comprehensive hands-on experience through a selection of diverse clinical practice placements, which could be based in primary, community care or hospital settings.

You will carry out a minimum of 1,000 hours of clinical placement experience under the supervision of experienced physiotherapists. A combination of campus-based learning, independent study and clinical practice will enhance your interprofessional relationships.

As a student on this course, you will join a research-led academic community in the subject area of therapeutic and rehabilitation sciences.

Our course will prepare you for work as a physiotherapist through a combination of University based modules and clinical practice placements. You'll study the core areas of physiotherapy practice - neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy, cardiorespiratory physiotherapy and neurological physiotherapy.

Practice placements will take place in a variety of environments, including primary and community care and hospital based settings. A key benefit of our course is the use of inter-professional working, and you will share many aspects of learning with students on our MSc Occupational Therapy (Pre-registration) course. Our problem-based independent learning approach will develop you to become an autonomous practitioner and lifelong learner.

The Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) regulates physiotherapy. The titles of ‘physiotherapist’ or ‘physical therapist’ are protected by law. This means that anyone who uses a designated title must be on the HCPC Register. Successful completion of the MSc pre-registration Physiotherapy course will give you the eligibility to apply for registration with the HCPC.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
