The subject area provides excellent links with physiotherapists in practice – these links allow student access to up-to date clinical material and professional expertise within the university and practice settings.

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy is a key industry link and is the professional body for physiotherapy in UK. Many staff members undertake committee work, attend professional meetings and are members of special interest groups under the control of the organisation. In addition, several staff members are external examiners on programmes accredited by the professional body.

Over the past 30 years, graduates from GCU have made a huge impact in the field of physiotherapy.
