Course summary

About this course

Physiotherapists work to improve the physical activity and quality of life for people with healthcare issues. This 2 year MSc Physiotherapy degree offers an accelerated route to become a qualified physiotherapist.

As a graduate-entry student, you’ll complete practice placements in each year with a number of our local healthcare partners. After you pass, you’ll be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

On this pre-registration physiotherapy master’s degree you’ll learn about the science behind the subject. You’ll be supported to become independent, self-motivated and assertive. Developing the ability to reflect and use critical analysis for your own, and others’ practice is essential.

Your clinical placements occur throughout the course and take place with our local healthcare partners. They help combine your theory and your practice skills.

On some modules you’ll experience ‘shared’ and ‘joint’ learning with peers from other healthcare disciplines. When you graduate you’ll be able to demonstrate clinical, research and management excellence.

When you successfully complete the course, you will have the basis to apply for accreditation with the HCPC and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
