Course Summary

The Advanced Physiotherapy MSc provides high quality continuing professional development opportunities for physiotherapists from the UK and overseas.

Core modules on the course focus on the four pillars of advanced practice (clinical practice, leadership, education and research) and help you to develop complex decision-making skills, apply evidence-based practice and develop innovative solutions that will enhance patient, family and carer experience and improve clinical outcomes.

This course is open to applicants from the UK and overseas, supporting a multicultural exchange of clinical knowledge and approaches and giving an exciting extra dimension to learning.

Course structure

The structure of this course allows you to focus on your own area of interest within the physiotherapy profession. This means that you will be able to find support for your ongoing learning and career development.

Interdisciplinary learning is a strong feature of this course. Many of the modules are attended by occupational therapy, podiatry, nursing, midwifery and paramedic colleagues.

A flexible modular framework normally involves six one-week study blocks at the university.

To be awarded the MSc you will complete six modules and a relevant dissertation. Modules comprise three core modules, two professional modules and an option module. The dissertation may be based on research carried out either in the university or in another suitable environment.

The course is delivered in a variety of ways, typically via e-learning, lectures, seminars, workbooks for work-based learning and practise in our high-tech Human Movement Laboratory, and Clinical Skills and Simulation Rooms.
