The Veterinary Physiotherapy course from University of Liverpool is recognised by the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy (ACPAT) as an upgrading route for ‘Category A’ membership.
Method of Teaching
Postgraduate Diploma modules are delivered as part of a fully-taught, structured e-learning programme, where students receive support and guidance from subject specialists. Candidates do not work in isolation but as part of a teaching group, with regular contact with fellow students and academics online via evening journal clubs and discussion boards.
The virtual learning environment also includes access to the University of Liverpool's online library.
In addition, candidates attend a total of 4 weeks or 20 days practical training at the University of Liverpool's Leahurst campus: 20 practical days with a clinical educator and an additional 10 days in veterinary practices over the two-year programme. The 50 days of practical training provide candidates with the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills learned on the programme.
Some practical training may be completed abroad for candidates studying from non-UK countries.
