Course summary

Course Overview

Our two-year graduate-entry MSc Physiotherapy (pre-registration) programme is a challenging but rewarding course. The programme is designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to become a highly competent registered physiotherapist able to work compassionately and creatively with various patient groups.

You will also gain skills in evidence-based practice, research, and continuous professional development practice. On this course you will be taught by academic staff with extensive clinical experience and guest lecturers who are experienced clinicians at the forefront of their subjects. Our programme uses a modern and innovative integrated blended learning approach, using technology to support face-to-face teaching, so you will only be in university a maximum of three days a week.

When you are learning on campus you will be taught in our innovative new facilities which have been designed for teaching pre-clinical and clinical skills.

Bucks has a well-established range of healthcare and nursing programmes, and we work closely with NHS and Primary Care Trusts across Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas. You will primarily be on clinical placements throughout year two, which will occur in various settings, including but not limited to an acute hospital, primary and community stations, and outpatient clinics. This wide range of placements will equip you with a background and knowledge that will prove invaluable in your career as a physiotherapist.

  • Objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE)
  • Viva (oral examination)
  • Oral presentations
  • Written examinations
  • Portfolios
  • Clinical case studies.

These assessments will enable the modules to support and build up your practical, clinical, communication, and written skills that you will need for the clinical placement module and successful lifelong learning. The blended learning programme and other learning activities experienced on the course will prepare you well for initial practice and will promote continued learning, enabling you to adapt to the opportunities you will face during your career journey.
