Program description

Physiotherapy

The main aim of this program is to produce graduates who are fit for practice and eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and membership with the professional, educational and trade union body, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).

The program offers a challenging and rewarding educational experience that enables the student to develop as a competent physiotherapy practitioner, who places the patient at the heart of care and is capable of making a valuable contribution to the workplace. The program will develop students’ understanding of physiotherapy theory as well as hands-on practice and will be rooted within the School of Health Sciences with its track record of excellence in research. This will ensure that the student develops an appreciation of evidence-based and innovative practice across a range of physiotherapy roles including in rural healthcare.
