The Admissions team will use the entrance criteria, as well as the personal statement, reference and work experience information, to shortlist candidates for interview. Successful applicants will be invited to an interview – Candidates will be assessed on their motivation and understanding of the role of a physiotherapist and familiarity with NHS Constitution and Values and the requirements of an HCPC registered professional.

Non-academic entry requirements

It is expected that applicants gain voluntary work or work experience shadowing a physiotherapist in order to have a good, clear understanding of what the profession entails. It might be that you have work experience organised, but haven’t undertaken it yet. If so, please don’t let this stop you from applying. We just need to know what your plans are to demonstrate your commitment to and passion for the profession. We do understand, however, that this is not always easy to obtain and if this is the case, we would encourage applicants to gain knowledge in other ways. You could speak with qualified physiotherapists, read industry publications or do some research online. Useful websites include The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and NHS Health Careers.

Health checks

We strongly recommend that all successful applicants (unless exempt on medical grounds) receive a full course of Covid-19 vaccinations prior to commencing the course.

Candidates must receive a satisfactory occupational health clearance prior to commencing the course.

Please contact Admissions if you have any questions regarding  any of the above.

Course Fees

The full-time course fee for the academic year beginning September 2023 is £9,250 per year.

The University will review tuition fees and increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases would be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments).

Additional Costs

Although not an entry requirement for the course, it is very likely that applicants will need to obtain Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) later on within the course for their work experience placement. Students will be advised about this process during their studies. For more information on your DBS application please click here.​
