Are you looking for a rewarding career in physiotherapy? Do you have a science-based degree? This course allows you to progress from your undergraduate degree to becoming a fully-qualified physiotherapist.
The course is designed to be hands-on and practical. Our Mary Seacole Building is purpose-built for physiotherapy and occupational therapy. The rooms reflect the type of clinical environments that you'll work in as a physiotherapist and you’ll learn your practical skills here as you’ll have the opportunity to practice on patients visiting the university and on your fellow students. This means that you’ll be confident and experienced in time for your first placement.
On this course, you’ll learn how to evaluate data and to apply research knowledge and skills to clinical practice. You’ll be taught to design your own research and how to use this research to advance clinical practice.
At Brunel we understand the value of making the most of your 1,000 hours of clinical experience. Your placements begin at the end of the first year. All our academic staff have worked or still work clinically within the London area so you will benefit from their excellent links with prestigious London hospitals.
There’s also a strong focus on professional development throughout the course. Study areas include managing and improving health services, self-management and team working so you’ll be fully equipped with a strong scientific foundation and the practical and professional skills to progress your career. This is reflected in our employment figures with 100% of MSc pre-registration graduates employed as physiotherapists within six months of completing the programme.
