Master description

The master's degree, of the research type, comprises nine modules, taught in two four-month blocks over a single academic year.

The degree programme includes a compulsory core element for 50 ECTS credits, which covers evidence-based science, translational research methodology, statistical analysis and the master's dissertation, and an optional element (10 ECTS credits ) in which students can choose from among modules on different topics in physiotherapy application.

Compulsory modules have a shared teaching system, in which the organisation and the teaching take place at both teaching centres. The organisation of the optional modules depends on one of the centres.

The theory components of the modules, both compulsory and optional, will be delivered through on-site face-to-face classes, the online campus (similar to Moodle) or videoconferencing to students at both centres simultaneously. In the optional modules that involve practical classes students will have to travel to the teaching centre where these modules are taught.
