Course summary

Overview

Become an effective and resourceful physiotherapist, comfortable working within a rapidly changing healthcare environment. Physiotherapists play an increasingly central role in enabling others to improve their health, wellbeing and quality of life by managing pain and preventing disease. They use a broad range of treatment approaches focused on restoring movement and function, often following illness or injury. We hold strong links with physiotherapists working in health and social care, as well as the private sector and in social enterprise settings across the Greater London area. We utilise the expertise of clinicians to contribute to the course design, teaching sessions and provision of practice placements. Our programme provides an accelerated 2-year route for graduates with a first degree in a related field. This course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).

Employability

Physiotherapists play a key role in enabling people to improve their health, wellbeing and quality of life. They use a broad range of treatment approaches focused on restoring movement and function, often following illness or injury. Physiotherapists often work within a multidisciplinary team and may do this in a variety of clinical environments such as outpatient clinics, inpatient wards, in the patient's home, or in a sport or performance setting.

Professional links

LSBU has collaborative research links with Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust Therapies department and with other key healthcare providers in the independent sector. This includes community, acute and specialist settings, reflecting the diverse nature of physiotherapy practice.

Teaching and learning

This course takes a blended approach to learning. It provides a range of learning formats and teaching delivery styles – and allows an individual approach, providing you with some flexibility in your preferred learning style. Interactive lectures will introduce key subject matter. Practical sessions, small group teaching and demonstrations will be used to facilitate skills development. A range of other approaches will be incorporated into students’ learning which can include online worksheets, guided independent study, e-learning, peer group learning, and group discussions. When it comes to assessment, we use a variety of approaches to promote different skills and abilities while reflecting the nature of the module of learning. The main rationale for choosing the assessment method is helping students in the development of a wide range of professional knowledge and skills. The types of assignments demonstrate progression of skills and abilities as students’ progress on the course. Typical assessments include written examinations, written assignments, verbal (case study) presentation, practical examination and clinical assessments.
