How our muscles, joints and bones work together to make us mobile is a marvel. On our Physiotherapy degree you’ll be stretched to go beyond skin-deep learning as you explore the anatomy, physiology and science behind the practice of physiotherapy and build the skills and confidence you need to work in this hands-on and rewarding profession.

Our three-year course is designed to ensure you are able to work in partnership with users and carers and other professionals, and able to make sound and compassionate clinical decisions, problem solve and provide a consistent and high standard of evidence-based care.

This programme also incorporates leadership development, which is very attractive to providers and recognises that future practitioners need these skills to contribute effectively to flexible and responsive service delivery. 

The curriculum, which is developed in collaboration with clinical staff including the Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust, aims to foster your individual strengths and attributes, relating them to your own developing professional competence. We prepare you by encouraging a reasoned, evaluative and evidence-based, person-centred approach, encompassing reflection and independence in learning, and the ability to work effectively with others.
