NEW – COVID-19 vaccine requirement
From 1 April 2022, applicants must either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before the start of the course or provide valid proof of medical exemption.

We have limited places so it is advisable to apply early to be considered for one of these dates. If the course fills the available places we will not hold later interviews. If you receive an offer you will have six weeks to accept it. After this point we may offer your place to another candidate.
Make sure that you submit your final transcript, evidence of any physiotherapy work experience and two references.

We are not able to accept applications for deferred entry onto this course. If you wish to apply for a later year of entry, we recommend waiting until the admissions cycle for that year opens – this is usually in October of each year.
Men are under-represented in many nursing and allied health professions in the UK. We are committed to helping address the balance and particularly welcome applications from male applicants.
