MSc Advanced Physiotherapy


Course Description

MSc Advanced Physiotherapy is an advanced programme of study for registered and qualified Physiotherapists.

Under this main programme of study, there are five specialist areas where our students can direct their focus and develop their professional practice:

Physiotherapy focus
Musculoskeletal Therapy focus
Neurological Therapy focus
Cardio-respiratory Therapy focus
Manual Therapy focus (provides eligibility for MACP membership)

However, no matter whether students choose to focus on one or many of the different specialist areas of focus above, you will graduate with an MSc Advanced Physiotherapy.

Each of these areas consists of core units which must be taken in order for you to achieve the academic standards required to successfully complete your programme and be eligible to be awarded an MSc degree by the University. In addition, there are a range of optional units which can be taken to improve your professional practice or develop specialist skills in a particular area.

Some of these units may be delivered by other Master’s programmes within the University. This not only widens the variety of units, which you can study but also offers the potential for multi-professional education and professional study.

Whilst there is freedom to choose a range of units, which interest the student and develop multi-professional practice, Advanced Physiotherapy units must form two thirds of your final credits in order to successfully graduate from the programme.

This is a flexible programme of study and can be delivered on a modular basis as a full or part time programme. All units of study provide academic credits, which are built up to offer exit routes at the following stages:

180 credits: MSc Advanced Physiotherapy
120 credits: PgDip Advanced Physiotherapy
60 credits: PgCert Advanced Physiotherapy
