Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

Studying physiotherapy at Cardiff means you will be studying at one of the top 3 physiotherapy courses in the UK as ranked by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.

Our physiotherapy programme will result in you being eligible to apply to the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) for registration which means you will be licenced to practice as a qualified physiotherapist after graduating.

Physiotherapy is an exciting and ever-evolving professional career concerned with supporting individuals to live fulfilling and active lives. You will develop the skills to act as an autonomous practitioner providing holistic care with the person at the centre.

A career in physiotherapy opens up opportunities for you to work closely with public health organisations, exploring innovative ideas around health promotion and being at the forefront of delivery of healthcare. Physiotherapy offers you the chance to work in a stimulating, sociable and supportive environments working closely with other professions as part of multi-disciplinary teams, patients and their families.

Our hands-on course offers you the chance to study through both academic and placement learning. Meaning you get to take what you’ve learnt in theory and put it into real practice when you’re out on placement.

You will study areas such as movement and exercise, manual therapies, electrotherapies, education and advice, and behavioural and psychological therapies. Your academic learning will be supported by researchers and academics. You will have a designated personal tutor to support your learning throughout your studies with us. Practical teaching takes place in specially designed labs and simulation suites.

Your placement learning takes place across Wales and takes up about one third of the course. Placements are an essential part of the course and they will give you the confidence and skills to practice physiotherapy professionally in real-life situations with qualified professionals supervising and supporting you. Placement learning also helps you gain insight as to the wide-ranging employment opportunities available to you upon qualification.

We constantly try to make sure you have plenty of opportunity to take part in extra-curricular activities such as physiotherapy-related support with the annual Cardiff Half Marathon.

Above all else, we strive to ensure that our graduates are ready for the next step in their career and the many opportunities that await them. Our programme aims to develop your knowledge, skills (intellectual, discipline specific and transferrable), professional behaviours and values (Knowledge and Skills Framework CSP, 2013) which enhance employability and provide you with the opportunity of securing rewarding and satisfying employment. That’s why 97% of our physiotherapy students are in employment or further study after 6 months of graduating (UNISTATS 2018).

Cyfarpar ar gyfer cwrs penodol

Ar ddechrau’r tymor cyntaf byddwn yn gofyn i chi brynu nifer o eitemau ar gyfer dosbarthiadau ymarferol:

  • Nifer o eitemau bychain fydd yn costio tua £15 yn cynnwys goniometer 8”, pensil ar gyfer gwaith marcio (mae pensil amrannau fel arfer yn addas), pecyn o greonau paent wyneb –yn ddefnyddiol ar gyfer arlunio cyhyrau yn ystod dosbarthiadau anatomeg arwynebol ymarferol.
  • Ysgerbydau –set maint go iawn o esgyrn ffug wedi’u modelu ar rai dynol mewn blwch storio â chlo sydd ar gael i chi i’w logi o’r Ysgol. Er nad yw’n orfodol, rydym yn argymell eich bod yn llogi ysgerbwd i’ch helpu chi i ddysgu anatomeg. Mae llogi ysgerbwd yn costio £30 (nad yw’n ad-daladwy) ond gellid ei rannu rhwng grŵp o bedwar i leihau’r gost ac i greu grŵp dysgu.
  • Bydd stethosgopau ar gael i fyfyrwyr i’w defnyddio yn y dosbarth yn ystod eu blwyddyn gyntaf. Bydd angen i fyfyrwyr i brynu eu stethosgopau eu hunain (tua £45) i fynd ar leoliad clinigol yn ystod eu hail flwyddyn.

Strwythur y cwrs

The Programme takes place over three years of full-time study. It follows a modular framework where each academic year, consists of 4 modules, represents a single level of learning. A single level is equal to 120 credits and the award of BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy requires the accumulation of 360 credits.

The first 18 months of your undergraduate education will be based in university gaining the knowledge, skills and behaviours to be an active participant in your first practice-based education opportunity half way through year 2. The second 18 months you will spend the majority of your time in practice settings developing your personal and professional skills across a range of different areas of physiotherapy and returning to university to complete your research project with guidance from your research supervisor.

The integrated curriculum will help you to identify connections between the knowledge, skills and behaviours that are key to a developing physiotherapist. The first year of the programme is structured so modules run in parallel, so you can integrate knowledge of physiological, biomechanical, anatomical, behavioural and clinical sciences which provide the foundation for physiotherapy practice. As you progress through the years you are required to add different layers to your knowledge and skills revisiting subject areas, adding increasing levels of complexity including, reasoning approaches, patient centred care, multi-disciplinary working, service user diversity, practice-based learning, government and professional drivers and public health.   

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020

Blwyddyn un

Yn y flwyddyn gyntaf bydd eich astudiaethau sylfaen yn cynnwys Gwyddorau Dynol a Biofeddygol ochr yn ochr ag Astudiaethau Ffisiotherapi. Mae'r wybodaeth am theori ac ymarfer y proffesiwn yn eich galluogi i feithrin sgiliau therapiwtig sylfaenol. Byddwch yn cael eich asesu trwy arholiadau, aseiniadau ysgrifenedig, elfennau ymarferol a chydrannau gwaith cwrs.

Mae’r modiwlau a addysgir ym mlwyddyn un yn rhoi cyfanswm o 120 o gredydau. Mae pob un yn graidd (gorfodol).

Blwyddyn dau

Caiff sgiliau asesu a thrin eu hymestyn yn yr ail flwyddyn (lefel pump). Byddwch yn defnyddio sgiliau gan ddefnyddio dull datrys problemau o ymdrin yn y sefyllfa glinigol, ac yn dechrau datblygu dealltwriaeth o ymarfer sy'n seiliedig ar dystiolaeth. Mae asesu parhaus yn cynnwys ysgrifennu aseiniadau, arholiadau ymarferol ac asesiadau dysgu mewn lleoliad.

Mae’r modiwlau a addysgir ym mlwyddyn dau yn rhoi cyfanswm o 120 o gredydau. Mae pob un yn graidd (gorfodol).

Blwyddyn tri

Yn ystod lefel chwech, byddwch yn datblygu eich dealltwriaeth o reoli cleifion â chyflyrau cymhleth ac aml-batholegau. Mae asesu parhaus yn cynnwys dysgu mewn lleoliad, gwaith cwrs, portffolio a thraethawd ymchwil.

Mae’r modiwlau a addysgir ym mlwyddyn tri yn rhoi cyfanswm o 120 o gredydau. Mae pob un yn graidd (gorfodol).

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Our course is designed to be stimulating and relevant to the needs of a professional physiotherapist. Great emphasis has been placed on the practical and clinical aspects of the courses, all of which have been accredited by the relevant professional bodies.
Diverse learning and teaching methods are used throughout, reflecting module content, your developing knowledge and growing expertise. All modules have a formalised teaching and learning structure which employ a range of formal lectures, seminars, workshops, practical skills sessions and case scenarios.

Independent studies are also an important aspect of the programme. Specific work may be set but you will also be required to identify gaps in understanding and initially address these in self-study or independent learning sessions.
The modular structure embraces teaching and learning opportunities available in a practice-based environment, where you will spend 1,000 hours in a practice setting. Acquiring knowledge and skills through practical experience is key to our physiotherapy degree.

As in the professional environment, great emphasis is placed on working in a multi-disciplinary team. Opportunities for shared learning and inter-professional education; learning alongside students from other disciplines are embedded.

This programme offers elements of provision through the medium of Welsh. This is achieved through, where possible, placing students in Welsh speaking areas or with Welsh speaking supervisors in their clinical placements, supporting students with learning materials and group work in the medium of Welsh where appropriate and by enabling students who wish to submit assignments or to complete examinations in Welsh to do so.  All students are entitled to a Welsh speaking personal tutor for the duration of their studies.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be assigned a personal tutor throughout your studies with whom you will have regular meetings with. They will provide pastoral support and academic guidance throughout the programme. In addition you will be assigned an academic supervisor who will support you in the development of your dissertation. When you are out on practice-based learning you will be assigned to a mentor/clinical educator who will support you with your practice-based learning.

Our virtual learning environment is accessible via desktop and mobile devices, allowing you to access electronic resources from anywhere. Dedicated computer labs, student study rooms, campus-wide WiFi networks, printing facilities and a dedicated Healthcare library are available year-round. Staff are available onsite to assist students and provide support and advice.

You will have access through the Learning Central VLE to relevant multimedia material, presentations, videos, lecture capture, bibliographies, further links, electronic exercises and discussion circles.
