Course Summary

Course overview

Are you a physiotherapist looking to refine and update your skill set, allowing you to maximise your potential for career development and promotion?

Our MSc Physiotherapy course is open to all therapists and related healthcare professionals who want to enhance their clinical skills, professional knowledge and critical appraisal abilities as part of their ongoing career development. It is ideal if you want to conduct hands-on clinically focused research without the commitment of undertaking a research-only degree.

Our Division of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Sciences has an excellent reputation for teaching and research. On the programme, you'll be taught by experienced teaching staff who are experts in their field and active in clinically focused research.

We offer three different programmes, each with a choice of optional modules so you'll have the flexibility to tailor your qualification towards your individual study interests.

You'll be part of a close-knit community of staff and students, where staff get to know you as an individual. We pride ourselves on the dedicated support we offer our students. This includes a personal tutor network to support you throughout your studies.

Graduate destinations

Recent graduates have gone on to work for NHS trusts (such as clinical specialists or advanced practitioners), universities (such as lecturers and senior academics, lecturer practitioners, or researchers) and in private practice.


This module is run over 12 half days in Autumn Semester. You will develop the skills and knowledge to evaluate and apply into practice a range of research methods and evidence base and to appraise the barriers to using evidence in practice.
Critical Reflection, Reasoning, and Appraisal in Clinical Practice (20 Credits) - Core
Advancing Clinical Practice (Musculoskeletal Management) (20 Credits) - Core
