Our accelerated pre-registration programme will enable you to qualify as a physiotherapist in just two years. You will develop a range of skills from the full scope of physiotherapy practice underpinned by the ability to think highly critically and to evaluate and apply evidence in practice. You will have exposure to world-leading researchers, complete a masters level research study (suitable for publication in an academic journal), and undertake a minimum of 1,000 hours’ practice placement under the supervision of a qualified physiotherapist. On successful completion of the programme you will be able to register with the physiotherapy profession and be in the best possible position to select and progress in the physiotherapy field of your choice.
