  • Entry requirements
    Employment in a UK hospital in a Department of Clinical Physiology (as a trainee MTO or higher) and Numeracy and English language (written and spoken) equivalent to GCSE Grade C (British Council IELTS – Band 6.0) and 2 A-levels in Science (one of which can be Maths) or BTEC National Certificate in Science (MPPM) or BTEC National Certificate in Science or Advanced GNVQ or AVCE Science or Equivalent
  • Course description
    We are the largest UK provider of training and education in the field of Clinical Physiology, with an intake of over 100 students per year. We have over 30 years’ experience in delivering high quality courses in this professional area, and are justly proud of our international reputation in this regard. We have enhanced our curriculum offer with the B.Sc. Honours degree in Clinical Physiology. The course has been designed in conjunction with the Professional Bodies with a view to the requirements of State Registration. The course is validated by Middlesex University, and has full R.C.C.P. accreditation for each of the Specialisation Pathways offered.

    Duration of the course: Four years part-time. The course is offered as block-release format only. College attendance is eight weeks and two days per academic year for the first 3 years, and two weeks and one day (plus Project tutorials as needed) in the 4th year.

    What does it include: The course covers three main areas of study:
    - core science modules
    - discipline specific theory modules (Cardiology, Neurophysiology or Respiratory Physiology – from which you choose one)
    - discipline specific workbased assessed modules

    Where is it based: The course is delivered at the Cosway Street Centre of the College, Cosway Street, London NW1 6TH - except the Respiratory modules, which are delivered in Bristol. All examinations are taken at the College.

    The above will gain you automatic entry to the course. The first requirement is non-negotiable. Other academic qualifications offered as equivalence will be considered on an individual basis. If you have recently obtained the HNC in MPPM (less than 5 years ago) or a relevant degree, and have acquired your Professional Body exam Part I, you may be eligible to join the course at the start of year 3. If you have a relevant degree without the Professional Body exam Part I, you may be eligible to join the course at the start of year 2.
