Physiotherapy and Sports Therapy placements
BSc Physiotherapy and BSc Sports Therapy include compulsory placements, which are a crucial part of your training and give you first-hand experience with real life patients.
Depending on the degree you are taking, placements can include local NHS trusts, private practices, and sports injury clinics, as well as other health and social care providers. They are your opportunity to experience life as a qualified physiotherapist or sports therapist, working with service users and colleagues from a variety of professions and backgrounds, so you feel confident to begin your career after graduation.
You won't be left to your own devices once you are on placement, you will be supported by a member of staff from within the organisation (known as a "practice educator" in Physiotherapy or "clinical supervisor" in sports therapy) as well as a member of staff from SRES, who will remain in close contact with you and the organisation.
By undertaking these placements you will graduate ready for UK practice with the skills and experience needed to apply for professional registration. Essex Physiotherapy graduates have also successfully applied for professional accreditation in other countries - the opportunities are endless!
