Programme Description

With approval from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) this programme allows you to gain the expertise and knowledge to become a practising physiotherapist.

The programme of study addresses the main areas of contemporary physiotherapy practice, namely neuromusculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory and neurorehabilitation. You will learn to think independently and problem-solve in a clinical capacity.

Study within the University is interspersed with clinical placements where you will acquire comprehensive hands-on experience.

On successful completion of the MSc Physiotherapy (pre-registration) programme, graduates will be eligible to apply for membership of the CSP as well as registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.

Clinical Placements

Study within the university is interspersed with clinical placements where you will acquire comprehensive hands-on experience.


A number of assessment methods are used in the programme, including coursework, practical examination, presentations and MSc Dissertation.

Employment Opportunities

Graduates have found employment throughout the UK in both the NHS and private practice and have also gained employment overseas. Some of our graduates have also become involved in areas of clinical research.

Our programme is internationally acknowledged and has achieved recognition in a number of countries.

Upon assessment, The Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators have found previous Glasgow Caledonian graduates to have an education that is ‘not substantially different’ from a Canadian physiotherapy education. These graduates were then permitted to attempt the Canadian Physiotherapy Competency Exam.

We are currently one of a small number of UK physiotherapy courses that the Australian Physiotherapy Council (APC) has deemed equivalent on individual application to a pre-registration physiotherapy course in Australia. Each individual application is assessed by the APC and potentially each programme cohort given equivalency on a "course year" basis.
