Physiotherapy BSc (Hons)

Physiotherapists are experts in human movement.

The prime purpose of physiotherapy is to restore and maintain function, activity and independence, and to prevent injury or illness through information and advice on healthy lifestyles.

Physiotherapists and assistants work across all healthcare settings and cover a wide range of specialisms, often as part of multidisciplinary teams.

Become an Honours-level graduate physiotherapist who can respond to the changing demands of healthcare provision.
