Therapeutic Professions

With a focus on enhancing human performance and quality of life for people with disabilities, illness or injury, or for those individuals who may benefit from physical adaptations, studying towards a therapeutic profession will lead you on the pathway to a challenging yet rewarding career.

We offer programmes approved by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists, Royal College of Occupational Therapists and the Society of Sports Therapists in conjunction with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) who approve the Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy pathways.
