Physiotherapy courses

PhysiotherapyOur physiotherapy courses are well established and some of them are approved by both the Health Professions Council (HPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). Our graduates are eligible to register with the HPC when they successfully complete the course.

Our postgraduate students can also obtain Accredited Clinical Educator (ACE) status and eligibility for Manipulation Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP) membership. Evidence from managers and clinicians suggests that our graduates are:

  • Creative and forward-thinking professionals
  • Able to solve problems and work well both independently and within a team
  • Highly employable as they are fully equipped with necessary skills for practice

Choose from:

Undergraduate courses

Postgraduate courses

Short courses

We also have a range of short courses for professionals who are interested in refreshing their knowledge and skills or just want to stay on top of new developments.

Staff expertise and associations

PhysiotherapyWe have a team of 27 full and part-time physiotherapy staff who have a broad range of clinical expertise and all are skilled teachers with extensive experience of delivering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes as well as short courses. Many of our lecturers work in the clinical environment and undertake research in addition to their teaching commitments which means that they bring their current experiences directly into the student environment.

Our physiotherapy team has strong links with NHS Midlands and East who commissions training places for the undergraduate programme and funds course fees for postgraduate students employed within the region.

We also value the close associations that we have with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), employers, managers, sports providers and local clinicians.

All staff are registered with the HPC and most of them have an MSc or specialist postgraduate qualification. We also have colleagues with PhDs who have an international profile to their specialty. In addition to this we also invite specialist external lecturers who contribute to the programmes where relevant.

Some members of staff are members of the Manipulation Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP). The MACP is a member of the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapists (IFOMT), a sub group of the World Confederation for Physical Therapists and therefore the staff have specialist advanced manual therapy skills.

Also, many of our staff:

  • are involved in professional committees at a national and international level
  • sit on editorial boards of journals
  • are involved in writing books
  • undertake reviews of abstracts for national and international conferences


We have impressive facilities for physiotherapy students including four fully-equipped laboratories, a student resource room and a research laboratory.
