This programme offers you a multi-faceted approach to learning physiotherapy, research and clinical practice. It strongly aims to develop professional and lifelong skills, whilst exploring the breadth of this exciting and varied profession.
Our course is divided into modules that will challenge and equip you to deal with a range of problems experienced by people as a result of illness, injury or disability. It will combine typical lectures with practical lab sessions and importantly, self-directed learning which we believe is imperative to gaining autonomy as both a student and later as a healthcare professional. First year modules will introduce you to key concepts such as anatomy, physiology and pathology, providing you with an understanding of human movement that forms the basis of promoting health and managing patient problems. In your second year you will explore some of the more specific aspects of a Physiotherapist's role, in managing patients with musculoskeletal, cardio-respiratory and neurological conditions. In your final year you will conduct a research project pertinent to your chosen interests and guided by our excellent research supervisors. You will also explore the challenges and roles of working in modern healthcare and the importance of multidisciplinary working, complimented by a series of clinical placements in a wide variety of environments.
