Physiotherapy is a scientific and evidence-based health profession that takes a ‘whole person’ approach to improving and maintaining wellbeing. Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness, or disability, using a range of interventions such as advice, education, exercise, and manual therapy and electrophysical agents. This programme is designed for qualified physiotherapists who wish to enhance their knowledge, skills, autonomy, leadership, and critical thinking, to equip them for modern day evidence-based practice. With an emphasis on applied theory and practical development, the programme aims to enhance both practical and research skills through critical engagement with evidence-based strategies for clinical practice. Students will also be encouraged to undertake analytical reflections based on their clinical practice to direct their own personal and professional development. Students will receive support from academics who have specialist knowledge and experience in the field.

Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
Students' knowledge and skills will be assessed through a broad range of methods including practical assessments, written assignments, and presentations. The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly.
