This course provides flexible continuing professional development.
It differs from our applying physiotherapy course in that we designed it for experienced specialised physiotherapists who want to expand and deepen their specialist skills and knowledge.
Its variety and flexibility provides high level specialist expertise and allows you to tailor your learning to suit the skills you need in your workplace. We offer specialist modules in musculoskeletal manual therapy, respiratory physiotherapy and neurological rehabilitation.
The course is modular and you can take most modules individually. Each module carries credit points. You get the postgraduate certificate at 60 credits, the postgraduate diploma at 120 credits and the MSc at 180 credits.
We assist with your module selection to ensure that the course meets your interests and aspirations. Full-time students may have some restrictions in available modules.
You can discuss your module choice with your course leader before enrolling or with your professional development tutor once enrolled.
