Course content

This 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. It is ideal for those wanting to conduct hands-on clinically focused research without the commitment of undertaking a research-only degree.

Within a stimulating climate of evidence-based practice and internationalisation, the school gives you access to world-class facilities and a unique opportunity to learn from experts; many of whom are internationally published and highly respected in their field.

The course is grounded in critical analysis and reflective practice, equipping you with the skills to evaluate contemporary professional practice. Students can undertake the generic award of MSc Physiotherapy, or select from one of two specialist pathways. These are:

  • Advancing Neuromusculoskeletal Practice
  • Neurorehabilitation

The two specialist pathways include a strong emphasis on evidence-based practice, physiotherapy theory, research and specialist interests.
