The Physiotherapy team offers two routes for physiotherapy pre-registration training - the three-year BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy and the accelerated two-year MSc Physiotherapy. The courses are validated and approved by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health & Care Professions Council.
If you wish to pursue a career in sport, you may be interested in our four-year pathway that comprises the full-time three-year BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy course and a one-year postgraduate MSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine – the MSc may be studied on a full-time or part-time basis.
The team has specialist clinical experience across the breadth of physiotherapy and includes national and international tutors of the McKenzie Method and Bobath concept, a University-wide teaching fellow, and Fellows and Senior Fellows of the Higher Education Academy.
As part of the masters course, a student-led research conference is staged at the end of the course and features presentations to students, staff and external guests. Previous keynote speakers have included Karen Middleton, chief executive of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
Staff members also lead the University’s Rehabilitation Science Research Group, which produces empirical research and presents peer-reviewed journal papers to national and international audiences.
We are proud that Leeds Beckett has offered Physiotherapy education for over 75 years. For our 75th anniversary, students from our School of Computing, Creative Technologies and Engineering kindly captured our celebratory event on video, which can be viewed below.
