Course summary

Physiotherapists treat patients of all ages, helping them to maximise functional movement caused by accidents, illness and disability. Their expertise helps improve mobility, independence and quality of life. This course prepares you to be a physiotherapist and includes the minimum of 1,000 clinical hours you need to qualify. You’ll learn how to treat patients and to communicate with them effectively, gaining hands-on experience from year one through your clinical placements in the National Health Service and private sector.You’ll also develop a thorough understanding of the human body, what happens when injuries occur and how to treat and manage them. We’ve worked hard with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) to ensure the course content is highly relevant. Our course is validated by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC), so you can apply for registration of the HCPC and full membership of the CSP on graduation.
