Robert Gordon University Physiotherapy School Postgraduate Entry



Robert Gordon University, located in Scotland, offers a Master of Science (Physiotherapy). This Physiotherapy program will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to practice physiotherapy via an accelerated programme which builds on prior learning and experience. It is a two year Masters course with an exciting and varied mix of academic and clinical learning.

Robert Gordon University places a firm emphasis on the development of clinical reasoning and practical skills throughout the Physiotherapy course. Academic modules have been developed to allow students to develop strong core assessment and treatments skills and a deeper knowledge of core areas such as exercise prescription and health improvement theory. Integrating the core practice areas of cardiovascular respiratory, neurology and musculoskeletal encourages students to think holistically about their patients to embed this in their practice.
