Course Content

By combining theoretical knowledge with practical experience, this course explores concepts, principles and theories of anatomy, physiology, movement, therapeutic exercise, electro-physical modalities and health promotion.

Your first year is primarily university based and involves studying alongside medical, radiography, healthcare science and biomedical science students. This collaborative interprofessional education helps you develop invaluable communication and team-building skills.

Years two and three combine academic modules and clinical practice based on robust scientific evidence. As you learn to integrate the theory with core practical skills, you also learn how to manage the rehabilitation of patients with the help of our specialist clinicians.

A comprehensive research project in year three also puts your analytical skills to the test, and clinical placements require you to work at high levels of safety, competency and autonomy.
