You will have several opportunities to take your learning into practice, initially in our practical and simulation facilities and then on practice placement. You will be encouraged to understand the journey of service users, their carers, family and friends. Professional accreditation The BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy is accredited and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) respectively. Successful completion of this programme provides eligibility to apply for registration with the HCPC and full membership of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Specialist facilities As a healthcare student, you will have access to our specialist, industry-relevant, simulation facilities at Canterbury and Medway campuses. These simulation suites allow you to practise hands-on skills in a fully-equipped, realistic hospital environment. Physiotherapy students will be taught practical hands-on skills in their own dedicated area of the simulation suite. These facilities include equipment you would be using out on placement, to develop the skills and knowledge you need in a realistic simulated environment.
