MSc in physiotherapy is a full time programme that lasts two years and gives you an accelerated route into the profession.

It is a preregistration course, which means you do not need to have studied physiotherapy at undergraduate level to enrol.

Instead, you just need a first degree in a related subject like a biological, behavioural, or sports science, for example.

During the programme you will undertake a practice placement to give you the hands-on experience you need to begin your career.

On successful completion of the course you will be entitled to apply to register to practise with the Health and Care Professions Council.
