BSc Physiotherapy

Key features

This course has been launched at the specific request of local healthcare providers to meet a critical shortage of physiotherapists – so the career prospects for graduates could hardly be better.

You’ll become a competent practitioner with clinical skills and knowledge to assess, evaluate, formulate and implement treatment programmes in a diverse range of settings. 

Six reasons to study Physiotherapy at Hull

  4. Close links to pro sports clubs such as Hull City
