The Physiotherapist Degree Apprenticeship BSc(Hons) programme follows a traditional degree structure of two semesters per calendar year.
As part of the requirements for professional registration the apprentice will undertake a minimum of 1,000 hours of practice placement as an apprentice physiotherapist, returning to their normal employed role outside university time.
Alongside their scheduled practice placement and set academic work on the course, apprentices work with their work-based mentor to make full use of the opportunities to learn within their employed job role.
As a student on this course you’ll also get to participate in Schwartz Rounds - hour-long sessions where students come together to listen to stories and share reflections in a supportive and confidential environment. The sessions offer the opportunity to reflect on the emotional aspects of clinical practice and are designed to support students and recent graduates working in complex settings.
