About this Course

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.

In addition to your campus-based learning, you’ll undertake four placements across your two years. These will be between seven and eight weeks in length. Working under close supervision, this is your opportunity to put your knowledge and skills into hands-on practice.

Our interdisciplinary ethos means that you’ll spend some of your time studying alongside Occupational Therapy students – professionals you’ll work with as a qualified physiotherapist. Inter-professional teamwork will be a central element of your career, and UEA remains one of the only UK universities to offer this approach.

During the course you’ll have the opportunity to work on your Master’s project, working with a member of our faculty on a subject that interests you. You could choose to look at empirical data collection and analysis, secondary analysis, or a structured literature review.

We are very proud of our innovative teaching methods and the passion and dedication of our staff. Our approach is creative, challenging and engaging. And our students tell us that they find our programmes professionally dynamic and personally transforming.

Course Structure

Practice placements are integrated throughout the programme, enabling you to undertake supervised clinical work with a range of different healthcare partners across the East Anglia Region. You’ll complete one seven-week placement in your first year, and three placements in your second year: two seven-weeks in length, plus a final eight-week placement.

Our two-year (45-week) programme adopts an Enquiry-Based Learning (EBL) ethos. This means there’s a focus on student-centred independent learning, problem solving and decision-making across the entire course.
