A message for students during COVID-19

In light of the challenges and changes students are currently facing due to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the CSP is working with your universities and monitoring the impact of this rapidly changing situation to keep you up to date. 

COVID-19 information for physiotherapy students

Updated: 6 May 2020

Universities across the UK have been affected by the  COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, each university is having to adapt how it delivers courses, and each institution is making slightly different decisions. This means that what your university is doing might be different to what’s happening at a neighbouring institution. This is a positive and necessary approach because each programme is structured differently. Here at the CSP, we are speaking to your lecturers to ensure they are making the right decisions for you as an individual, your year group as a whole and the frontline workforce. 

Please rest assured the temporary changes your tutors are making is in consultation with the CSP and do comply with our expectations of accredited programmes. For some students, the changes mean they might graduate early and have the choice to go on the temporary register, while others will need to carry on with placements until enough hours are completed. Your safety is your university’s number one priority.

During this time of change, please stay in touch with your tutors and lecturers, and with your peers, and continue to follow the government and NHS advice on how to keep yourself and others as safe as possible.
