Our MSc Physiotherapy course 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.

We offer two pathways so you have the flexibility to tailor your qualification towards your individual interests.

You'll be part of a close-knit community of staff and students, where staff get to know you as an individual. We pride ourselves on the dedicated support we offer our students. This includes a personal tutor network to support you throughout your studies.
