Why Study Health Professions at Robert Gordon University?

Robert Gordon University, located in Aberdeen Scotland, offers a Master of Physiotherapy (Pre-registration) program.

This graduate-entry Physiotherapy program is two years in length and starts in January.  RGU is now accepting applications for the January 2015.

RGU is proud to announce that there are roughly 24-26 spots set aside for International Students which includes mostly Canadian and American.  This allows the cohort to be roughly 50% international students / 50% home students.


With inter-professional working ever more important, RGU’s strong focus in this area is a big ‘plus’ post-graduation.

Female radiography student Robert Gordon University promotes hands-on, practical, patient-centred training that leads to professional registration through our undergraduate courses and high quality care.

RGU is responsive to health and social care policy, also providing a service to the local community while training – for example through local volunteer patients.

Health Profession Students be taught by experienced practitioner staff at RGU  who are also active researchers in their field. Strong links with practice colleagues ensure up-to-date courses that equip our graduates to enter the workplace with specific skills attractive to domestic and international markets. You’ll also learn transferable skills in communication and team working.

Professional placements throughout many courses start as early as year one – earlier than at some other universities. This allows students to start putting theory into practice as soon as possible.

Robert Gordon has a School of Physiotherapy within the Health Professions area of study.  The Master of Physiotherapy is very a popular Physiotherapy program of study in the UK with North American students.

Many courses are based in our new Faculty of Health & Social Care building.
