Course Summary

Introduction

Join our two-year pre-registration Masters course in Physiotherapy, validated by the HCPC and accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Study in Chelmsford or Cambridge.

Our full-time MSc Physiotherapy degree is an opportunity for life science graduates who wish to become physiotherapists. If you're a problem solver with natural empathy, a fascination with the human body and the ability tackle everything with a ‘can do’ attitude, it's the course for you.

Physiotherapists are allied health professionals who help restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. They do this through movement and exercise, education and advice.

Key to their role is the promotion of prevention and individual self-wellbeing through a healthy lifestyle. At the core of the job is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.

As a student you’ll gain real-life experience working alongside clinicians to bring about positive change. We’ll teach you about different health conditions and how to recognise and manage them. As well as your course team of academics, you’ll hear from national and international experts at top of their clinical and research field.

TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT

In Year 1 you’ll get to grips with the fundamental skills of a physiotherapist. We’ll equip you with the knowledge that you need to be successful on your placements, and to assess and manage musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiovascular conditions – as well as mental health.

Modules are subject to change and availability.

Assessment

We use a variety of summative assessments to ensure you are able to integrate your theoretical and practical knowledge with relevant contextual understanding. Assessment types for this course include MCQ, short answer and SBA exams; practical clinical examinations (OSCE); critical writing; presentations; patchwork text; reflective writing; and Placement Assessment Documents (PAD).

In Year 2, you’ll continue to spend time on placement, as well as learning how to critically evaluate evidence and apply evidenced-based practice in healthcare. You’ll also have the opportunity to complete a Service Improvement Plan, as we prepare you for your future as a physiotherapist.
