You will complete core units of study and choose optional units that are intended to complement different areas of physiotherapy practice, such as musculoskeletal, neurology or a First Contact Practitioner role.
Practical sessions are an important part of this course and, depending on the units you choose, you will learn techniques such as soft tissue manipulation and manual therapy techniques.
Most study will take place on-campus. However, when studying the sports units, you may study at the Manchester Institute of Health and Performance (MIHP).
Our lecturers are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and many still work in practice alongside teaching. Our teaching team also includes researchers with expertise across a range of specialisms, including knee and spinal dysfunctions, shoulder management, musculoskeletal and physical activity interventions, older people rehabilitation, stroke and Guillain-Barré syndrome.
On the Advanced Physiotherapy course from Manchester Metropolitan University, you will develop specialist physiotherapy skills to help you in clinical practice, as well as critical evaluation and research skills.
As a graduate, you will have gained significant expertise in practice, giving you the opportunity to apply for roles that are more senior. You could apply for a promotion to the next band in the NHS pay scale, for example.
You might look to open a private practice or perhaps go into teaching, continuing the research you began during your course.
A number of our students have presented their abstracts at physiotherapy conferences both in the UK and abroad.
Presentations included 'The impact of rehabilitation on parents and caregivers of children with cerebral palsy: a systematic review' (Abeer Abdullah Al-Mutayliq) and 'Clinical and cost-effectiveness of a physiotherapy case management service for back pain' (Judith Smith).
Future students may have the opportunity to present abstracts of their work at any of the forthcoming physiotherapy conferences.
