UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

This programme integrates the clinical, academic and research components of neurophysiotherapy practice, with an emphasis on the management of patients with neurological disorders. You will develop an understanding of evidence-based practice and develop as an advanced physiotherapy practitioner. You will be able to select from a wide range of modules according to your interest and complete at least one clinical placement. This programme offers you the opportunity to extend your knowledge of the key practical and theoretical aspects of neurophysiotherapy. You will challenge the foundations of established but poorly justified treatments, develop and undertake clinical research and learn about new and emerging treatment options. You will also benefit from the mentorship of recognised experts in neurophysiotherapy.

The neurophysiotherapy degree offers an extensive range of compulsory and optional modules in specialist areas. Lectures, tutorial and workshops are delivered by recognised experts in physiotherapy practice. We have close links to the UCL Institute of Neurology and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square with its specialist physiotherapy department. The programme will provide you with the skills and knowledge for a career in academia or research, or a more senior clinical or management position within your chosen career field. Recent physiotherapy graduates have pursued senior careers in healthcare policy, university lecturing, private practice, management or highly specialist clinical practice. Several past physiotherapy students have used the MSc successfully to gain funding for PhD studies.
