Course summary

Physiotherapists help people rehabilitate and regain movement after an illness or injury, treating patients with muscle and skeletal injuries, as well as neurological and breathing problems. Our Physiotherapy BSc explores concepts, principles and theories of anatomy, physiology, movement, therapeutic exercise, electro-physical modalities and health promotion. You will leave equipped with the knowledge, understanding, assessment and treatment skills needed to work as an effective physiotherapist. Supervised, hands-on experience with patients is the best way to consolidate your learning, so you will undertake placements in a variety of healthcare environments, which may include acute NHS hospital trusts, community-based services, mental health trusts and private hospitals. You will gain practical experience in a variety of specialist healthcare areas, including cardiac and respiratory care, neurological rehabilitation and musculoskeletal outpatients. Year 1 is primarily based at the university. You will study alongside medical, radiography, healthcare science, biomedical science and occupational therapy students. This collaboration helps you develop invaluable communication and team-building skills. Years 2 and 3 combine academic modules with clinical practice based on robust scientific evidence. With guidance and supervision from specialist clinicians, you will be able to integrate theory with core practical skills in a health or social care setting. A comprehensive research project in year 3 helps you develop your analytical skills, and on clinical placements you will learn to work at high levels of safety, competency and autonomy. As a graduate you will be equipped to work in multidisciplinary teams to help people of all ages and in a variety of settings, such as intensive care, mental health, stroke units, rehabilitation centres, and sports and leisure facilities. When you complete the course you will be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). Please note: whether you are already focused on a given career path or not, we strongly recommend you include in your personal statement a recognition that studying physiotherapy will include practice and study in a number of settings.**Course highlights**- Awarded by St George’s, University of London and provided by the School of Rehabilitation Sciences at the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, a partnership between St George’s and Kingston University- Undertake placements in a variety of healthcare environments - Study alongside students on other courses, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of healthcare workplace environments- Learn anatomy in the dissection room through demonstrator-led prosection - Accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health and Care Professions Council- Graduates eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Chartered Institute of Physiotherapy (CSP)**About St George’s, University of London**As the UK’s specialist health university, we’ve been improving health for over 250 years.
