If someoneâs suffered an injury, has an illness or disability, the physiotherapist helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible â and is therefore a key member of the health care team.
The GCU programme develops graduates who are both innovative and skilled. As physiotherapists with a genuinely scientific outlook, they can deal with patients in a variety of settings, neurorehabilitation to musculoskeletal, respiratory care to industry.
To develop the skills required in physiotherapy youâll practise on other students in your class. Your learning is also supported by visiting the clinical simulation lab, field trips, practice education placements and e-learning.
Students gain experience in an elective placement, which can take place in the UK or abroad.

Glasgow was incredible, I was genuinely surprised when I arrived here. Don’t believe the hype, Glasgow is a bustling metropolis with loads of amazing bars, coffee shops and markets (The Barras is a godsend for decorating your flat) to whittle down your student loan. Caledonian is also a lovely university – I was seriously impressed by their support services, they were very accommodating and helped me out with bursaries and applying for various schemes. They were really dedicated to making sure I was able to achieve my degree with the minimum of financial and health stresses, and I’m very grateful!
