As a physiotherapist you will work closely with people of all ages who are affected by illness, injury or disability, and a variety of other conditions affecting health and wellbeing. You will devise and provide individualised treatment programmes with compassion, patience and strong interpersonal skills. Physiotherapists help improve a person’s quality of life through advice, exercise and education. Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the individual’s general lifestyle. At the core is the person’s involvement in their own care. The focus on interdisciplinary learning across all our health courses enriches your experience while also preparing you for the reality of professional practice. You will spend a total of 30 weeks on placement gaining practical knowledge and skills using fully equipped professional-standard equipment. This course gives you everything you need to start working as an HCPC-registered physiotherapist in the UK, with professional and portfolio development from start to finish.
