Subject

Physiotherapy

**Our BSc Physiotherapy programme has been launched at the specific request of local healthcare providers to meet a critical shortage of physiotherapists. So the prospects for graduates are excellent.**

Study in the award-winning Allam Medical Building on a programme developed to help meet a local and national shortfall in the number of qualified physiotherapists. The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) estimates at least 500 extra student places are needed each year.

- At least 1,000 hours of placements in clinical practice with organisations including local NHS organisations, community and private agencies.

- We are the official university partner of Team GB and enjoy strong links with local professional sport clubs, including Hull City FC, Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers.

- Graduates are eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and gain full membership of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (subject to approval/accreditation).

- You’ll have opportunities to be involved in a student-led rehabilitation clinic on the University campus.

- Study at one of very few UK universities to make use of body paint and ultraviolet light to teach anatomy.

- We keep our class sizes small (approximately 30 students per year) to ensure you get the support you need throughout your studies.

You'll become a competent practitioner able to assess, evaluate, formulate, and implement treatment programmes for musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, and neurological issues in a diverse range of settings.

**Official Team GB partners**

Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it.

What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership.

We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. Some of our students recently helped Team GB athletes get their kit ready to compete in preparation for the Minsk 2019 European Games. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else.
