Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy MSc

Course Description

Course overview

The Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy MSc is for qualified physiotherapists wanting to build on their skills and knowledge, advance their professional practice, and earn a further professional and academic qualification.

This course has been developed with the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT). Course graduates benefit from being able to apply for full membership of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP).

You will develop your advanced evaluative and problem-solving skills for the examination, assessment and treatment of patients with musculoskeletal dysfunction.

A wide range of optional modules means you can create your own CPE study programme to suit your professional or personal interests and aspirations.

The course is designed to fit around your existing physiotherapy practice hours. Week-long intensive study blocks allow attendance for students based in the UK, EU and internationally.

We are known for our flexible approaches to practice-based learning, with course durations and intensities that can be adapted to your individual needs and outside commitments.

Entry Requirements

This course is for qualified physiotherapists. Applicants should normally hold an honours degree in physiotherapy but those with suitable alternative qualifications, such as a diploma in physiotherapy, will be considered. Professional registration as a physiotherapist is required, and students enrolling for the PGDip or MSc must be registered by the Health and Care Professions Council and be a full member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy or hold their own indemnity insurance. This is not a requirement if you are enrolling for the PGCert.We normally ask for a minimum of one year's post-registration experience in a musculoskeletal physiotherapy setting.
