Course outline

If you're interested in physiotherapy, then we're here to give you the knowledge and skills to be able to register with the Health and Care Professions Council. Our accelerated programme will help you become a practicing physiotherapist with only two years of study, rather than the traditional three. You'll use your existing academic skills to study patient management in core areas of physiotherapy, including cardiorespiratory, musculoskeletal and neurology.

We offer a blend of academic study and practical experience, including five placement opportunities in a variety of settings across North West England, Southern Scotland and the Isle of Man. After 1000 hours of supervised clinical practice, combined with the research and theory learnt in the classroom, you'll have everything you need to be a fully-registered and qualified physiotherapy practitioner.

2017 Entry

From 2017 the government will cease to provide bursaries for undergraduate NHS courses. Students will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs, rather than getting an NHS grant. This information is based on the understanding provided by The Council of Deans for Health and may be subject to change as further details are released by the government.

How we can support you

If you enrol onto an undergraduate NHS programme in 2017, we’ll cover the costs of your:

  • Uniform
  • DBS check**
  • Occupational Health check
  • Travel costs for placements of up to £300 each year

This is in addition to any government support agreed.
