Course summary

If someone’s suffered an injury, has an illness or disability, the physiotherapist helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible – and is therefore a key member of the health care team. The GCU programme develops graduates who are both innovative and skilled. As physiotherapists with a genuinely scientific outlook, they can deal with patients in a variety of settings, neurorehabilitation to musculoskeletal, respiratory care to industry. To develop the skills required in physiotherapy you’ll 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. Students gain experience in an elective placement, which can take place in the UK or abroad.
