Physiotherapists are healthcare professionals who use person-centred approaches to make a difference to people’s lives. Physiotherapists work in a wide range of settings and focus on the management and prevention of problems relating to movement and function across the life-span.
In Year One you will study the basic and applied sciences that underpin physiotherapy.
In Years Two and Three you will develop patient management and therapeutic skills. Part of your learning will take place in a variety of real health and social care settings. You will work (supported by a registered physiotherapist) with patients, their carers and families, and with other health and social care professionals. These practice-based placements are invaluable and will enrich your learning in all levels of the course. You may be placed at sites across Scotland, and will be required to cover any associated travel and accommodation costs.
In the final year, you’ll work collaboratively in small groups on a research project. All project teams will have a dedicated supervisor to guide the process.
