Physiotherapy offers a rewarding, well-paid career path, with practitioners increasingly in demand.
Date: 10 February 2022
London Met is proud to launch a new accelerated qualifying course in Physiotherapy, developed in collaboration with highly experienced practice-based partners from a wide range of health and social care settings.
The pre-registration master’s programme offers graduates of relevant scientific subjects – such as physiology, psychology, sports and exercise science, or sports therapy – the chance to develop an exciting new career.
Professor Isaac Sorinola, course leader for the Physiotherapy MSc said, "Since the pandemic, the demand for physiotherapists has increased significantly. If you’re passionate about supporting people to improve their health and wellbeing, physiotherapy offers a range of exciting, diverse career paths and makes for a rewarding professional journey.
"You’ll learn how to use your expertise for patient centred care, helping patients to maximise their movement and function, and aid them in recovering from injury, illness and the impact of ageing.
"If this appeals to you, we’re still welcoming applications. We look forward to welcoming the first cohort of students in September."
Employability prospects are at the heart of all London Met’s courses. Starting salaries for physiotherapists in the NHS are around £25,000 for entry level Band 5 physiotherapists, and rising to over £78000 for Band 8d roles at the top end of a rewarding career. Employability events, networking opportunities and compulsory practice-based learning mean students will be well placed to launch their physiotherapy careers, with excellent opportunities to work with NHS and private healthcare providers on offer.
Students will acquire knowledge of the clinical sciences underpinning physiotherapy practice, along with contemporary skills and attitudes to work flexibly across diverse settings within a modern health and social care sector.
London Met is home to an ultra-modern Science Centre, including one of the largest and most advanced science teaching facilities in Europe – the Superlab – as well as a sports therapy clinic and a fitness assessment centre. This Centre provides an opportunity for all students to develop an understanding of the scientific basis of human activity by working with state-of-the-art equipment.
