— Coventry University (@covcampus) February 9, 2015 OVERVIEW

This course runs in 2016/17.

Physiotherapists make a real difference to quality of life, developing and restoring functional movement and enhancing health. This course gives you the opportunity to develop a range of practical and academic skills to allow you to enter the profession successfully.


This course seeks to develop both academic and professional abilities, with an emphasis on the individual development of theoretical, practical, analytical, interpersonal and research skills.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • a course that is accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and eligibility to apply to join the CSP;
  • eligibility to apply for registration with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), which conveys a licence that allows you to use the title of physiotherapist and to practise physiotherapy;
  • clinical placements available with the National Health Service (NHS) and non-NHS employers across the West Midlands, South Central and East Midlands regions;
  • guest lectures by experts in their fields and employers in large NHS trusts, private practice, industry and sport;
  • enthusiastic teaching, progressive research and interactive web resources to support your learning;
  • research-active teaching staff who are rated in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2014 as Excellent and Enthusiastic and who bring their research into their teaching.

Please note: this Physiotherapy BSc (Hons) course can be undertaken either at Coventry or at our University of Leicester based campus. There is a different UCAS campus code for an application for a place at Leicester. As well as the NHS bursary places for UK/European Community students there are also self-funded places for international students: 10 at Coventry and 6 at the Leicester site.




Accreditations shall be renewed in accordance with the accreditors' standard review process and subject to the University maintaining the same high standards of course delivery.


This course gives you a comprehensive foundation for physiotherapy in the first year, covering anatomy, physiology, pathology, physiotherapy assessment and rehabilitation. Interdisciplinary modules cover foundations in communication and professionalism, and the social determinants of health.

In years two and three you go out on clinical placements, in between periods in university when you explore the necessary skills and knowledge. Preclinical preparation follows the core themes: cardiorespiratory, neurological, and neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy. You will then undertake placements for the three core themes. Later you will have the opportunity to expand your experience further by considering physiotherapy in a broader context, again based upon the core themes, and to engage in understanding health service provision in the modern NHS. In addition you will examine the nature of evidence for practice, and conduct an individual investigation or research project. There is a final placement preparing you for autonomous practice.

The list of modules you will study (subject to change) is as follows:

Year 1

  • Anatomy and Pathophysiology 1;
  • Introduction to Physiotherapy Assessment;
  • Foundations in Communication and Professionalism;
  • The Social Determinants of Health;
  • Anatomy and Pathophysiology 2;
  • Physiotherapy Assessment and Rehabilitation.

Year 2

  • Applying Clinical Reasoning in Practice;
  • Clinical Placements;
  • Enhancing Learning from Practice Experience;
  • Evidence-informed Practice and Decision Making.

Year 3

  • Clinical Placements;
  • Contemporary Physiotherapy Practice;
  • Working Together to Lead Service Improvement;
  • Enhancing Practice through Evaluation and Research Dissertation;
  • Final Placement.

Our modules are based on a series of one-hour lectures, each with associated laboratory practical classes and seminars. You will be in a group with around 20 other students who you will then stay with for the whole three years of the course. An important part of your course will be the clinical placements in the second and third years. You will also have an academic personal tutor assigned to you who will be available for academic and pastoral support throughout the course.


An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 5%; coursework, tests, essays 35%; practical or project work 20%; presentations, posters etc. 5%; other e.g. placements etc. 35%.


In a typical teaching week you will have up to 21 contact hours of study (classroom, online etc) and this will break down as:

Personal tutorial/small group teaching: meetings are arranged on a mutual basis as necessary

Medium group teaching: 15 hours of practical workshops or seminars each week

Large group teaching: 6 hours of lectures each week

Personal study: 10-15 hours each week studying and revising in your own time.
