Course summary

Physiotherapists help people rehabilitate and regain movement after an illness or injury, treating patients with muscle and skeletal injuries, as well as with neurological and breathing problems. This course is suited to graduates of health and life science disciplines who want to pursue a career in physiotherapy. It has been specifically designed to develop qualified practitioners who are proactive, flexible and able to meet the changing needs of health and social care. The course is delivered in partnership with Kingston University London, which means you will benefit from a large, multi-faculty experience combined with the health science expertise offered by St George’s. You will learn via a variety of methods, including classroom-based learning, simulated practical exercises, self-directed learning and practice placements in a variety of healthcare environments including acute NHS hospital trusts, community-based services, mental health trusts and private hospitals. This will help you become proactive, flexible and able to meet the rapidly-changing prerequisites of social and health care. You will develop into a critical thinker and independent learner with problem-solving skills. This course is fully accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and is available to students from within the UK and internationally. Please note: whether you are already focused on a given career path or not, we strongly recommend you include in your personal statement a recognition that studying physiotherapy will include practice and study in a number of settings.
