We offer physiotherapy clinical placements to second and third-year undergraduate BSc and MSc students from Birmingham University. Placements usually last between four and six weeks throughout the year. We also offer elective placements which usually last between one and four weeks.

Apprenticeship placements

As we are a leading centre in teaching and training we also offer apprenticeship placements within our Therapy Assistant team and our Admin and Clerical team. The apprenticeships allow the apprentices to study an NVQ Level 2 in either Clinical Healthcare Support (15 months) or Business and Administration (12 months) as well as gaining relevant work experience within the department.
