A successful enhanced DBS check is required for you to be able to participate in a Clinical Placement, which forms an inherent part of the second semester and is thus mandatory. You should therefore only apply for this programme if you are confident that your enhanced DBS check will be satisfactory and with the full knowledge that should you DBS results not be satisfactory, you will not be able to complete the programme.

Many people undertaking this programme of study may already work in the health service. For these students, the course will strengthen your CV and enable further professional development as you become an expert in your field. People who do not already work in the sector may seek employment within the NHS, or for private healthcare providers, including BUPA and Nuffield Health, or as sports rehabilitators.
