Course summary

Through clinical placements, case-based and simulated practice learning our newly reaccredited Physiotherapy BSc enables you to master the knowledge, clinical skills and confidence to become a qualified physiotherapist. We’re leading the way in physiotherapy teaching and will ensure your skills are of the highest standard for your future career. You'll complete 1,000 hours of supervised clinical practice throughout your degree, in order to comply with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy's requirements. Meaning that by the time you graduate, you'll have built your confidence and abilities so that you’re able to embark on a career as a physiotherapist. Our placements are undertaken in six blocks of five weeks, giving you extended time in each clinical setting to really deepen your learning and skill set. Areas you can work in include: cardio-respiratory, intensive-care, neurology, musculoskeletal departments, community settings, as well as leadership and research placements. We have an excellent support system on the course, including a dedicated placement support team who will help organise your clinical placements and will be on hand to provide guidance when you're out in practice. Not only that, but you'll supplement this by learning about the body and how it should work and function. Through real-life case studies, you’ll study each area of the body in relation to a simulated patient problem. This approach to teaching corresponds to clinical practice, meaning you’re gaining knowledge of anatomy and relevant experience of patient care. Additionally, all our modules are year-long, meaning you’ll gain a thorough understanding of each aspect of the human body.


Your first year will see you gain the foundational knowledge of physiotherapy. Through real-life and simulated case studies, you'll build not only your clinical skills but also the anatomy and theory behind the principles of physiotherapy. Each module last the entire year. Enabling you to gain a thorough understanding of each area, and ensure you are prepared for placements in year two. In your second year, you'll continue to deepen your understanding of physiotherapy at local and global levels, as well as broaden your clinical skills and ability to work professionally. It will also see you begin your placements. You'll undertake three, five-week placements in a range of settings. In your final year, you'll refine and focus your knowledge and skills, continue to grow as a clinician and leader, and conduct a final year research project in an area of your choosing. You'll continue to build your practical and clinical skills on placement during this year. This year you'll complete three five-week placements. You'll also complete an investigative piece of work in your final year dissertation project. This is an opportunity to carry out your own research in an area that interests you personally, with the guidance of our expert academics.
