Course summary

This course is designed to equip students with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to engage with and promote professional, social and political change in health and social care. Successful completion of this programme provides eligibility to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Varied and supported practice placement opportunities will be provided to develop students' awareness of the scope of physiotherapy. Practice based learning will support the development of an understanding of different career opportunities within the NHS, private and third sectors, and beyond in an ever changing healthcare workforce. The University of Lincoln is home to The Community and Health Research Unit (CaHRU), which is the research centre for the School of Health and Social Care. CaHRU conducts world-leading interdisciplinary research with service users, health service professionals and organisations to increase health and well-being across the health, social and third sector care services. CaHRU is allied with the Lincoln Institute for Health. The Lincoln Institute for Health (LIH) is a university-wide multidisciplinary research collaboration that conducts internationally excellent and world-class studies from ‘cell-to-community’. This programme is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).

Physiotherapy is a science-based health profession that takes a ‘whole person’ approach to promoting, improving, and maintaining wellbeing. Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability throughout the life span by using a range of interventions such as movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. Students on the MSc Physiotherapy (pre-registration) programme at the University of Lincoln will have the opportunity to explore, appreciate and understand current physiotherapy practice, alongside how to be critical in their approach to developing new, innovative and evidence-based interventions. The interprofessional components of the course aim to develop practitioners who are professional, compassionate, safe, reflective and autonomous. Working with peers from nursing, midwifery and the allied health professions will promote team work, collaboration, and an application of research skills in the transformation of health and social care services.

Career and Personal Development: Many registered and Chartered Physiotherapists work for the NHS and are recruited and employed by individual Trusts. This programme is forward-looking and realises that many Physiotherapists and new graduates may also work in the military, sports, private and third sectors. New, varied and innovative job opportunities are increasingly available to qualified Physiotherapists, and this programme aims to prepare its graduates accordingly. Non-clinical careers also exist in teaching, research, management and administration, health and safety, and training and development. The experienced teaching team will help you explore and develop your individual career aspirations. Careers Service: The University Careers and Employability Team offer qualified advisors who can work with you to provide tailored, individual support and careers advice during your time at the University. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.
