Physiotherapy BSc (Hons)



What will I learn?

This Physiotherapy course has been developed to provide you with the key skills you will need to embark on a successful career in physiotherapy, either within the NHS or in other health and fitness settings. When you successfully complete the course you will be able to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), to allow you to work as a physiotherapist in the UK.You’ll learn through a combination of methods including lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical classes, presentations and reflection – as well spending some periods on clinical practice placements. You’ll also learn through real-life simulations and by exposure to state-of-the-art equipment. The comprehensive curriculum that you’ll study has been approved by the HCPC, and you’ll gain the core skills needed to assess and diagnose patients’ problems caused by accident, illness or ageing, and to formulate treatment plans and implement exercise, physical activity and therapeutic treatments.Studying this course will give you the skills needed to work as part of a multidisciplinary team and alongside other clinical therapists – with the NHS or beyond – in a range of settings.Physiotherapy core values are central to the curriculum and emphasis is placed on the unique and individual client-centred assessment and management informing the content and configuration of the curriculum (rather than bio-medical and service-led patterns). The programme adopts a Spiral curriculum design that emphasises building on prior knowledge. This means concepts are re-visited with increasing complexity in learning continuing throughout the programme. It is divided into themes that require further depth as students progress through the course.These themes are :Physiotherapy: Philosophy, Values and Professional RoleThinking Critically and Practicing Evidence-Informed PhysiotherapyConcepts, Theory and Knowledge underpinning PhysiotherapyPhysiotherapy in Practice**Additional information**We would strongly recommend that all successful applicants (unless exempt on medical grounds) receive a full course of Covid-19 vaccinations prior to commencing the course.
