You will analyse basic functional movements and the contributing anatomical structures, and explore how tissues develop and change over time with aging, injury and the addition of load.

Practice Learning Placements
Gain experience in industry
Placements are vital to your development as a healthcare professional and are integrated into your University work.
You must complete a minimum of 1000 hours of supervised clinical experience to meet the requirements of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Your placements could be hospital based, community or simulation based.
All clinical placements will be arranged for you by our Placement Co-ordinator, except for a final year elective placement which you will arrange yourself. Your placement experience will be unique to you, and no students will graduate with identical placement profiles. Our placement profile is constantly developing as we are still a new course.
You will not be on placement during weekends or night shifts, but the times, locations and settings for each placement will vary.
You will be allocated a supervisor on placement who will guide and support you during the placement. An academic tutor will visit you on placement so you can complete your placement assessment.
Where you could go after your studies
When you graduate you will be eligible to apply for registration as a Physiotherapist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
Physiotherapy is traditionally seen in secondary care and acute settings for in and out patients, but there are a wide range of additional physiotherapy roles. These roles could include health promotion and work in hospices.
Your placement experience during the degree will expose you to many roles and types of work you could continue after graduation and prepare you for your healthcare career.
You could choose to continue your studies at postgraduate level.
