Course Summary

Gain a Master’s in Physiotherapy and you could have an incredibly positive impact on people’s lives, helping them overcome physical setbacks and get back on their feet - often literally. It’s a career ideally suited to great listeners - able to piece together the physical with the emotional to build a complete picture - and to those who like to go beyond the theory and actually make things happen.

Our innovative approach is based on the very latest research. Through our rigorous programme you’ll develop sound knowledge of the clinical sciences underpinning human movement and function. You’ll have access to our superb, dedicated learning facilities, including our anatomy room and assistive technology suite. And you’ll have early patient contact and benefit from small group taught sessions.

ABOUT

Our MSc Physiotherapy course is fully approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Enroll with us and you’ll be based at our School of Health Sciences,where you’ll receive an academic and a practice-based education that’s second to none.

During taught sessions you’ll spend your time using case studies, focusing on the needs of individual clients or client groups. Through a combination of self-directed learning, workshop activities and Enquiry-Based Learning (EBL), you’ll build up the knowledge you need to identify issues and make decisions on how to address them.

You’ll become expert in understanding specific psychological, cultural and social factors in the context of care. You’ll also learn about due consideration of the needs and abilities of others involved with the client, including carers and other health and social care workers. You will also consider how, as a physiotherapist, you can use your expertise to advise and teach groups, and promote health across whole communities.
