Our course embraces a vision of patient-centred care within a wide range of healthcare settings, and you will gain invaluable experience in public and private sector based clinical, rehabilitation and sport environments. You will study in inclusive and supportive learning environments, that encourage reflection and that are enriched by case-based and evidence-based learning.

You will be taught by highly experienced lecturers, clinicians and leading researchers in physiotherapy. What sets this course apart is the focus on the clinical placement education and volume of practice hours along with the leadership and management modules which will enhance your skill set, and prepare you for your future career.
