Five reasons to study this programme at Leeds Beckett University
We are proud of our 75-year history of teaching physiotherapy in Leeds. You will be part of a small course with friendly staff on a city-centre campus that has a purpose-built clinical skills suite. The BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy course has gained 100 per cent ‘overall satisfaction’ ratings in the National Student Survey in 2017.
Course design: We help you to develop your academic skills from the start of the course and provide a resilience training programme in Year 1 to prepare you for your academic and clinical work. All modules have high contact hours with small module teaching teams. We ensure that you study all core content before practice placement learning. We invite a broad range of specialist clinicians and service users to input into our teaching in order to enhance your learning. Our Visiting Professors are Karen Middleton CBE (Chief Executive of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) and Andrew Walton (Executive Chair of Connect Health).
Teaching staff: Staff are clinical experts from a variety of backgrounds including NHS, private health sector and sports to reflect the broad range of clinical specialities across the age range and clinical settings. All physiotherapy staff have teaching qualifications and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
Placements: You will complete six five-week placements in and around Leeds that we organise on your behalf. These are mainly in our two city-based Teaching Hospitals, community settings, charities, sports settings and schools.
Research: Staff incorporate their publications and conference presentations into classroom teaching.
