There are many benefits to studying MSc Advancing Physiotherapy Practice at Coventry University, but one of the most important is that students can be confident that they are choosing a well-established course which consistently receives excellent student feedback and delivers high pass rates. (PTES, 2018) The teaching team comprise staff who are both experienced in teaching and also clinical experts. Students will be learning in our new purpose-built Science and Health Building which has state-of the-art skills labs, simulation models and technological support. Staff view supporting student transition to learning at master’s level as an integral part of their teaching role and past students have found this support to be a valuable contribution to their academic development.

In addition, students should develop interpersonal skills and cultural competence from learning alongside a globally diverse group of students in both the physiotherapy classes and the inter-professional classes. Finally, one of the great benefits of postgraduate study at Coventry University is the opportunity to undertake the Global Professional Development module, which has been developed in partnership with the Chartered Management
