Recent University league tables show two Southampton Health Science subjects ranked in the UK top ten.

Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physiotherapy programmes at Southampton are ranked in the top ten in the UK.

The Complete University Guide 2019 reveals that Physiotherapy has risen to 3rd place from 29th last year, while Occupational Therapy (OT) - which is new to the tables - has entered at 4th.

Interim Head of Allied Health Practice at Southampton, Dr Julian Pearce, said: “We are delighted that both Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy have ranked so highly in the Complete University Guide 2019. It is recognition of the high-quality research-led education that we provide here at Southampton and the calibre of the graduates that leave us ready to contribute to and help shape the healthcare services of today.”

Southampton’s Physiotherapy courses attract high-achieving students with a passion for healthcare who want to make a difference in people’s lives. Our world-leading research is continuously integrated into our education, and our programmes have won awards for involving patients in teaching delivery. Our students gain hands-on experience in our dedicated practical rooms that contain excellent facilities including a simulated ward with state-of-the-art programmable mannequins.

Our Occupational Therapy programmes attract outstanding, motivated and inspirational students who are taught by academics that are at the cutting-edge of national and international research. We have strong links with clinical and community partners and our superb facilities include an adapted flat for daily living, a multisensory environment and a biomechanics laboratory.
