Course Summary

This programme integrates the clinical, academic and research components of neurophysiotherapy practice, with an emphasis on the management of patients with neurological disorders. The programme fosters an understanding of evidence-based practice and students are encouraged to develop as advanced practitioners. Flexibility in selection of modules allows for physiotherapists with particular interests to be accommodated. This programme offers students the opportunity to extend their knowledge of the key practical and theoretical aspects of neurophysiotherapy, challenge the foundations of established but poorly justified treatments, develop and undertake clinical research and learn about new and emerging treatment options, enjoying the mentorship of recognised experts in neurophysiotherapy. The programme will enable graduates to pursue a career in academia or research, or to use their postgraduate qualification to be successful in applying for more senior clinical or management positions within their career field. Recent physiotherapy graduates have pursued senior careers in healthcare policy, university lecturing, private practice, management or highly specialist clinical practice. Several past physiotherapy students have used the MSc successfully to gain funding for PhD studies. This degree is also available as a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate with fees set accordingly. Students will take this course in flexible study mode also.
