Course summary

Whether working in a hospital, the community, industry, schools, sport, public or private health settings, physiotherapists help people overcome physical difficulties by restoring movement and function to as near normal as possible. Physiotherapists are key members of the health care team working in a challenging and rewarding profession.

Our aim is to develop graduates with the values and skills to become innovative and problem solving practitioners. You will develop a scientific outlook and deal with patients in a variety of settings; from neuro rehabilitation to musculoskeletal to respiratory care and industry.

To develop the skills required in physiotherapy, you will practise on other students in your class. Your learning is also supported by visiting the clinical simulation lab, field trips, practice education placements and e-learning. You will also gain experience in an elective placement in the UK or abroad.

All placements are undertaken within Scotland and are dependent on placement availability. Students usually travel daily to and from placement, however in some cases accommodation is required.

Professional accreditation

On completion of the programme you will be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Assessment methods

We use a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure that you have both the necessary knowledge and understanding of business and management and a portfolio of intellectual and personal skills.

Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include unseen examinations, class tests, essays, management reports, case studies, presentations, and group work.

Teaching methods

The learning and teaching methods we use ensure that our programme is both vocationally relevant and academically challenging. Our approach is student-centred, practical, participative and relevant to the needs of employers.

We've moved away from the traditional teacher-centric learning to a more independent learning approach, where you are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills.
