The programme adopts an enquiry-based learning ethos focused on student-centred independent learning, problem solving and decision making. There will be an evolving level of complexity; from engaging with case scenarios that develop baseline theoretical and therapeutic understandings, through to complex situations addressing service development needs.

Structure:

On the programme learning is enhanced through a shared ethos between physiotherapy and occupational therapy students, echoing the importance of interdisciplinary work. Students can work with a member of faculty on their specialist area, either on a research project involving empirical data collection and analysis, secondary analysis or on a structured literature review.
