Course content

The Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy MSc is for qualified physiotherapists wanting to build on their skills and knowledge to advance their professional practice.

There are two pathways on the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy MSc; in collaboration with the course leader you will decide on the best pathway and course of study depending on your clinical experience and professional registration status.

  • The Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy pathway enables you to choose from a number of university-based modules with a musculoskeletal focus.
  • Alternatively you may be eligible to follow the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy (MACP) pathway; this pathway has been developed with the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT).

You will develop your advanced evaluative and problem-solving skills for the examination, assessment and treatment of patients with musculoskeletal dysfunction. Choosing option module(s) means you can create a 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 and EU. We are known for our flexible approaches to practice-based learning, with clinical module intensities that can be adapted to your individual needs and outside commitments.

Our high quality teaching and research are renowned, and have an applied focus. We have established strong links with specialist practice educators to ensure the provision of support and guidance both within the university and in practice.
