Program description

BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy

Amongst a team of skilled healthcare professionals – including doctors and nurses – physiotherapists independently identify, assess and analyse physical problems caused by injury, illness or ageing and treat them by taking a holistic approach using skills such as manual therapy, exercise or electrotherapy.

Our three-year course incorporates the core values of the NHS constitution to help prepare you for the challenges of working as a physiotherapist in contemporary healthcare.

You’ll learn to assess what people need, and identify their problems. We’ll help you to understand how to set treatment goals and determine approaches that provide the maximum benefit for your patient.

To teach you essential clinical reasoning skills we use real patient case studies. This will give you the opportunity to try out your practical skills such as joint mobilisations and massage on people in your class and on patient simulators.
