Physiotherapist careers

If you are looking for a career in the health professions, become a physiotherapist - why not? If this appeals to you, check out our UK jobs and courses information as a way of gathering the right information. As a physio you'll assess physical function and treat injury or dysfunction with exercise.

It takes three or four years of full-time study to become a Physiotherapist (Chartered and State Registered that is), a serious commitment. Training courses include a large amount of study in your own time, and lengthy clinical placements, which may not necessarily be local to you. If that level of full-time commitment is not possible for you, there are also a number of part-time programmes in the UK, some of which have been set up to cater to those currently working as assistants, who wish to gain full qualification.

Another popular route is through an accelerated programme. Applicants who have already obtained a degree in a relevant discipline such as a biological science, psychology or sports science, (first class or upper second class honours graduates), may be eligible to study for an accelerated Masters degree programme. On successful completion, graduates will be eligible to apply for state registration and membership of the Chartered Society.

These courses often have intense competition for places, so although minimum entry requirements are the same as those for all degree programmes, it is often the case that conditional offers of a place are set higher than the minimum. To gain qualification you will need to able to study, and apply sound scientific and professional knowledge to solve problems. A variety of qualifications may be accepted, so it is important to check directly with the individual university before you apply.
