Course summary

Learn in state-of-the-art facilities, study the latest in clinical research and get leading-edge training in our MSc Physiotherapy programme. GCU collaborates with industry to bring a cutting-edge course of study to physiotherapists seeking to advance their careers. The programme is delivered by practising experts, specialists and academics – and informed by the latest developments in the field.

You’ll hone your skills in a friendly, open and diverse environment – where we’re focused on advancing your career and committed to global engagement, social responsibility and serving the common good. Get a world-class education that takes a cross-functional approach, with contributions from the fields of nursing, podiatry, occupational therapy and radiography as well as physiotherapy, and modules taught by guest experts and experienced academic staff across GCU’s School of Health and Life Sciences.

Drawing on our close relationship with industry, your programme includes a wide range of teaching methods to help you advance in your career – including problem-solving activities, case studies, practice-based learning, peer support and blended learning using GCULearn, our high-tech virtual environment.

Graduate prospects

You might broaden the scope of your current work – or launch a new career as a clinical specialist, consultant, researcher or private practitioner. Whichever path you choose, your MSc Physiotherapy will give you the skills and qualifications you need to succeed. Our alumni are competitive for roles in the private, public and third sectors, within the UK and abroad.

Recently students have obtained physiotherapy posts in Europe, New Zealand, Canada, USA and Hong Kong & Singapore. Applications to some of these counties require an application that reviews the course specifics and the individual student profile. You may also need to undertake additional exams.

Assessment methods

We use a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure that you have both the necessary knowledge and understanding of business and management and a portfolio of intellectual and personal skills.

Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include unseen examinations, class tests, essays, management reports, case studies, presentations, and group work.

Teaching methods

The learning and teaching methods we use ensure that our programme is both vocationally relevant and academically challenging. Our approach is student-centred, practical, participative and relevant to the needs of employers.

We've moved away from the traditional teacher-centric learning to a more independent learning approach, where you are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills.
