BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy


Whether working in a hospital, the community, industry, schools, sport, public or private health settings, physiotherapists help people overcome physical difficulties by restoring movement and function to as near normal as possible. Physiotherapists are key members of the health care team working in a challenging and rewarding profession.

Our aim is to develop graduates with the values and skills to become innovative and problem solving practitioners. You will develop a scientific outlook and deal with patients in a variety of settings; from neuro rehabilitation to musculoskeletal to respiratory care and industry.

To develop the skills required in physiotherapy, you will practise on other students in your class. Your learning is also supported by visiting the clinical simulation lab, field trips, practice education placements and e-learning. You will also gain experience in an elective placement in the UK or abroad.
