Physiotherapy also plays an important role in injury prevention and health and wellbeing.

In addition to the knowledge and expertise you will need to be a first rate physiotherapist, at Worcester you will study leadership throughout that will enhance your degree and help you develop your career. With our commitment to inter-professional learning, you will also gain experience working alongside Occupational Therapy and Nursing students, invaluable teamwork experience for anyone hoping to work in the modern inter-disciplinary health sector.
