MSc Physiotherapy (Pre-registration)
This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to practice physiotherapy via an accelerated programme which builds on prior learning and experience. It is a two year course with an exciting and varied mix of academic and clinical learning.
Our course is the only Physical Therapy programme outside North America which is accredited by CAPTE. Therefore, each year we welcome a number of students from the United States and Canada as well as students from other countries who wish to practice in the USA to this course.
There is a firm emphasis on the development of clinical reasoning and practical skills throughout the course. Academic modules have been developed to allow students to develop strong core assessment and treatments skills and a deeper knowledge of core areas such as exercise prescription and health improvement theory.
Integrating the core practice areas of cardiovascular respiratory, neurology and musculoskeletal encourages students to think holistically about their patients to embed this in their practice.
