Course content

Our full-time MSc Physiotherapy degree is an opportunity for life science graduates who wish to become physiotherapists. If you're a problem solver with natural empathy, a fascination with the human body and the ability tackle everything with a ‘can do’ attitude, it's the course for you.

Physiotherapists are allied health professionals who help restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. They do this through movement and exercise, education and advice.

Key to their role is the promotion of prevention and individual self-wellbeing through a healthy lifestyle. At the core of the job is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.

As a student you’ll gain real-life experience working alongside clinicians to bring about positive change. We’ll teach you about different health conditions and how to recognise and manage them. As well as your course team of academics, you’ll hear from national and international experts at top of their clinical and research field.
