Develop and refine your skills in contemporary physiotherapeutic practice by engaging with practical research on this Physiotherapy (pre-registration) programme at York St John University.


By setting the core physiotherapy skills into practical situations, you will develop into a practitioner who is primarily focused on your clients. You will apply and analyse contemporary practice, while using evidence to determine the effectiveness of physiotherapeutic techniques. This will help you to recognise and solve clinical problems and improve service user outcomes.

You will learn leadership skills and engage in service development projects. While studying, you will learn to adapt to the changing needs of service users and changing health and social care provision.

You will consider the role of different professions and how they work alongside physiotherapists. You will do this through case scenarios, case discussion and visiting speakers from a variety of different clinical environments, including:

  • Moving and handling
  • Basic life support
  • Breakaway training
  • Fire safety
  • Infection control


On this Physiotherapy (pre-registration) course at York St John University, you will develop the skills, abilities and competencies to become a qualified and registered physiotherapist. Your clinical abilities and knowledge of NHS standards will be applicable in many healthcare settings. You may wish to further and refine your knowledge by gaining professional experience, then returning into academic study to become an advanced practitioner.
