Both of our courses aim to prepare students in all areas of practice fundamental to the needs of a newly qualified physiotherapist or sport rehabilitator. For this, students must be able to exercise sound judgement in a variety of clinical or sporting situations, and be able to evaluate and adapt their therapeutic skills to meet the needs of the individual patient/client.

We pride ourselves on the flexible approach to education that we offer in year three; you choose two optional modules in each semester, enabling you to design a course of study based on your own interests and preferences.

Course specific placement information:


Each student must undertake a minimum of 1,000 hours of supervised clinical experience. At Nottingham, this is divided into eight four-week placements plus a three-week 'elective placement' at the very end of the course.

We expect students to complete four practice placements totalling a minimum of 720 hours. Each week will comprise 36 hours and you may be required to work weekends or evenings depending on the requirements of the placement area.
