MSc Physiotherapy (pre-registration)

Key features

Do you want to take your career to the next level and become a registered Physiotherapist? Physiotherapy is a science-based healthcare profession where practitioners use their skills to improve and manage a wide range of medical conditions.

Physiotherapists help people affected by illness, injury or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. Physiotherapists take a ‘whole person’ approach to health and fully involve the patients in their own care through education, awareness and empowerment.

On this course you will study the core areas of physiotherapy and apply these to clinical situations in this hands-on programme. Your study will include practice-based learning in a variety of NHS and private settings to give you a diverse experience to prepare for your future career as a physiotherapist. You will also build up valuable experience in supporting long-term condition management programmes and a musculoskeletal clinic at the University or in a local clinic.

The course benefits from using state-of-the-art facilities including treatment rooms, rehabilitation space, a hospital ward, a skills laboratory, a biomechanics laboratory, physiology laboratories, a strength and conditioning suite, fitness suite and a simulated ‘home’ environment.
