Brunel University London

Course Introduction

Choose physiotherapy at Brunel and you'll work in the architecturally inspiring setting of our purpose'built Mary Seacole building. While you are with us you'll complete over 1,000 hours of clinical experience. Clinical education happens in six'week blocks which gives you time to find your feet, learning as you go, and offers plenty of opportunity to consolidate your learning. Our well'established course has great links with some of the most highly regarded London placement partners including Kings Hospital, Central Middlesex, Charing Cross, Chelsea and Westminster, St Thomas', Royal Free, University College London, the Royal Brompton, The Royal National Hospital for Neurology and Great Ormond Street, as well as a large number of general hospitals. We are extremely proud that despite physiotherapy being an extremely demanding course requiring focus and dedication many of our students combine their studies with fantastic achievements in sport and the arts. Awards are available and tutors go out of their way to ensure you can arrange training, fixtures and performances while staying on top of your physiotherapy studies.
