This is where

...I gained the skills I need

Winona Man, MPhysio Sport and Exercise Medicine

“I decided some time ago that I was interested in a career in physiotherapy. I also had ambitions to study abroad - so I thought about how I could combine the two.

“Physiotherapy is a competitive field in Hong Kong, and it can be difficult to get a job immediately after graduation.

"Although I am only going into my second year, the MPhysio Sport course at Bradford has already made me feel confident that I will leave with the essential skills needed for my career path."

Where Physiotherapy can take you

Our Physiotherapy course is approved by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the statutory body for Allied Health Professionals. At the end of your studies, you will be eligible to apply for registration with the HCPC, and will be eligible to apply for full membership of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). 

This means that you can progress directly into work as a qualified physiotherapist. Recent graduates have gone on to work for various NHS trusts, as well as private clinics.
