This course, based at the Nottingham City Hospital site, is recognised by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council. We believe in a holistic approach to working with others, and ensure that you are introduced to working in practice environments throughout the programme. To facilitate an applied approach to learning, you will have access to a wide range of facilities such as the human performance laboratory, the clinical skills suite, the dissection rooms, fitness and exercise suites and the new physiotherapy clinic with hydrotherapy pool. At the end of the course you are given the opportunity to undertake a three week elective placement, which may be situated in the UK or abroad.
The first year provides the basis of academic concepts and practical skills required for professional practice. Year two is divided between academic study, where you are introduced to a variety of pathological conditions and their physiotherapeutic management, and four (four-week) blocks of supervised clinical experience. We pride ourselves on the flexible approach to education which we offer in year three. In addition to the compulsory year-long modules, students may choose two optional modules in each semester. This enables you to select a course of study based on your interests and preferences. As with year two, time is divided between academic study and clinical practice. In addition, you will have the opportunity to undertake a three-week elective placement in your final year.
