Welcome to the Department of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a range of concepts, themes and practices which are related to each other but which cannot be reduced to a single entity. During the last twenty years, it has changed from a collection of treatments prescribed by medical practitioners into a method of clinical practice by which physiotherapists examine and assess patients referred for treatment and select appropriate intervention. The newly acquired diagnostic role and the traditional ameliorative and restorative roles demand a high level of theoretical and factual knowledge and practical ability. Physiotherapy requires understanding of diseases, processes and technical competence, both of which are formed on sound knowledge of Anatomy, Biomedical Sciences and Physical Science.

The B.Sc.(Hons) Physiotherapy course offered by our University is a four-year course, with the first three years being mainly academic, whilst the last year being solely dedicated to supervised clinical practice.

On completion of the course, the graduate will have the skills necessary to prevent, diagnose and treat any condition that influences the physical function and performance of the body. Moreover, successful completion of the course allows the candidate to be eligible for registration with the Council for the Professions Complimentary to Medicine.
