Therapeutic Professions

Let's restore more than bodies. Let's restore lives.

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.

We promote student-centred learning encouraging you to become an independent learner through a variety of strategies including lectures, group discussions, workshops, seminars and the use of the University’s Skills Laboratories to practise your skills. You’ll also undertake work placements.

With courses taught by practising healthcare and sports therapy professionals, in state-of-the-art facilities and along with real world work experience, our degrees will prepare you for a career in the healthcare sector or sporting environment and ensure that you are ultimately fit to practise and affect the patient experience in a positive manner.
