The MSc in Physiotherapy course was a great experience for me. I especially appreciated the method of teaching academic study to the postgraduate students where you can improve and develop your research abilities. The supportive teaching atmosphere and the ability to access a vast collection of information from the libraries helped me greatly. My research results were accepted for presentation as a poster in a conference and I have now had a paper accepted for the Journal Physical Therapy.

"I wanted to continue with my postgraduate studies so that I can develop the necessary research skills. Doing a PhD in my particular area will help me to continue my academic and professional development. In the Research Centre for Clinical Kinaesiology (Department of Physiotherapy Education), I have found the staff to be very supportive and friendly. Cardiff is a great city to live in and the outdoor activities are an added bonus."
