Our MSc Physiotherapy (pre-registration) is a 2-year course which offers those with a relevant UG qualification an entry route into the Physiotherapy profession.

The contemporary curriculum has been developed with stakeholders including service users, carers, students, and Physiotherapy graduates, to reflect the expanding and evolving role of the Physiotherapy profession with a strong focus on community, health promotion and primary care.
Our course offers a blended learning approach which includes online learning and in-person teaching. The programme will provide a stimulating and active learning environment to engage and motivate you to become a confident, autonomous practitioner with effective communication and teamwork skills for practice in varied health and social care settings. The course is modular which creates a spiral curriculum for knowledge and skills to be scaffolded and built upon as you progress through the programme and develop proficiency.
