Overview

With accreditation from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health & Care Professions Council, your course will provide you with the necessary expertise and skills to become a qualified physiotherapist. 

As a physiotherapist, you will help people of all ages to manage pain and dysfunction. Covering the core areas of neuromusculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory and neurological physiotherapy, you will learn how to think independently and problem solve in a clinical capacity. You will acquire comprehensive hands-on experience through a selection of diverse clinical practice placements, which could be based in primary, community care or hospital settings. 

You will carry out a minimum of 1,000 hours of clinical placement experience under the supervision of experienced physiotherapists. A combination of campus-based learning, independent study and clinical practice will enhance your interprofessional relationships. 

Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: 20% of our research in the Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care unit is world leading or internationally excellent.
Our course will prepare you for work as a physiotherapist through a combination of University based modules and clinical practice placements. You'll study the core areas of physiotherapy practice - neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy, cardiorespiratory physiotherapy and neurological physiotherapy. 

Practice placements will take place in a variety of environments, including primary and community care and hospital based settings. A key benefit of our course is the use of inter-professional working, and you will share many aspects of learning with students on our MSc Occupational Therapy (Pre-registration) course. Our problem-based independent learning approach will develop you to become an autonomous practitioner and lifelong learner.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.
