Course summary

Are you fascinated by how our muscles, joints and bones work together to make us move? Would you like to work with vulnerable people in a rehabilitation setting? On our Physiotherapy degree you’ll get the chance to delve into all the science behind the practice and build the skills and understanding you need to work in this hands-on and rewarding profession. * You’ll learn in small groups throughout the course, so you can take advantage of the high levels of support on offer. * Working in our physiotherapy practical rooms and biomechanics laboratory, you’ll have the opportunity to practice your skills in massage, joint manipulation and hot and cold treatments, as well as electrotherapy, movement analysis and rehabilitation. * Our excellent links with local healthcare providers and sports clubs provide opportunities for you to undertake practical placements, where you can apply and build on the skills and knowledge you have learnt. * You’ll have the opportunity to hear the experiences and viewpoints from service users and carers, who are part of the Public Partnership Group. * The course is accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council, so you can be confident it has independent approval. Exploring all aspects of practice from musculoskeletal physiotherapy and health management to neurological conditions and working with vulnerable client groups, you’ll have the opportunity to build a wide knowledge base. As you progress through the course, you’ll study how to assess, advise and treat individuals with a variety of conditions including spinal and joint problems, respiratory difficulties, neurological problems such as those recovering from strokes and other chronic conditions, accidents and operations. The Government has announced that from September 2020 new and existing students studying this course will be eligible to receive a non-repayable grant of at least £5,000 each year. Further information is available on the Government's website (https://www.gov.uk/government/news/nursing-students-to-receive-5-000-payment-a-year?) and the Council of Deans Frequently Asked Questions (https://councilofdeans.org.uk/2019/12/new-student-support-arrangements-for-healthcare-students/). This course has been designed to allow you to develop your skills and knowledge through a logical approach, from understanding normal anatomy and physiology in the first year, to building on this knowledge over the subsequent years of study. The teaching is dynamic and practical, giving you the opportunity to get hands on practice right from the first week of the course. The experienced tutors from a range of clinical backgrounds facilitate your learning, developing your understanding of how pathology can influence the human body and how this can be managed via various physiotherapeutic techniques. The course incorporates 1000 hours of clinical practice which is undertaken in partnership with the National Health Service Trusts in the Yorkshire and the Humber region, alongside private practices and charities. ~ Carley Turner, Lecturer and Admissions Tutor for Physiotherapy BSc(Hons).
