Course content

This MSc Physiotherapy is open to all therapists and related healthcare professionals who want to enhance their clinical skills, professional knowledge and critical appraisal abilities as part of their ongoing career development.

It is particularly ideal for those wishing to conduct clinically-focused research without the commitment of undertaking a research-only degree.

Within a stimulating climate of evidence-based practice and internationalisation, the Division of Physiotherapy gives you access to world-class facilities and a unique opportunity to learn from expert practitioners, educators and researchers.

The course is grounded in critical analysis and reflective practice, equipping you with the skills to evaluate contemporary professional practice. The various pathways include a strong emphasis on evidence-based practice, physiotherapy theory, research and specialist interests.

Postgraduate study is an essential investment in career progression and the pursuit of excellence in care delivery. We hope you will join us during this challenging and fulfilling stage of your career and we look forward to working with you to achieve your highest goals.
