Resources and facilities

The Physiotherapy Skills Suite is a dedicated room for teaching and learning where students learn the practical skills required for the programme. In addition we share a range of practical facilities e.g: 

  • a Clinical Skills Laboratory based on a hospital ward where students practice moving and handling skills;
  • a practical room with a human patient simulator offering students the chance to practice cardio-respiratory skills on a life-like manikin;
  • a large sports hall for observational movement analysis and group exercise practice.

Students also have access to the Physiotherapy and Sport Science Laboratory which is dedicated to the investigation of human performance from a clinical point of view. It is located on the Fusehill Street campus in Carlisle. The laboratory is used for both teaching and research and is shared by Physiotherapy and Sports Programmes.
