Top five reasons to study Veterinary Physiotherapy at WUC...


Our Integrated Masters in Veterinary Physiotherapy (MVetPhys) is the only veterinary physiotherapy course that enables direct entry to both the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP) and the Animal Health Professions' Register (AHPR) at graduation.


You will be able to apply to be a fully registered Veterinary Physiotherapist after completing the MVetPhys.


You'll be taught by highly-qualified and experienced Veterinary Physiotherapists and Veterinary Surgeons.


You will study a range of subjects, from hands-on therapies and electrotherapies to biomechanics and sports medicine.


You will use our on-campus specialist facilities including an Equine Water Treadmill and Canine Therapy Centre.

Why take a 4-year integrated masters rather than a 3-year BSc?

At Graduation, you will be eligible for direct access to the Animal Health Professions' Register (AHPR), and unlike the 3-year courses, you will also have direct entry onto the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP). This removes the need for the extra expense and time required for further study, required by BSc graduates for registration with RAMP.

The extra hours completed in clinical rotations throughout the four-year course, enable students to be well prepared to practice with confidence from day one after graduation, increasing their capacity for early career progression.

Having a level 7 (Masters level) qualification enhances the prospects of future employment for instance if you wish to return to academia as a lecturer or undertake a PhD, as well as the many other roles requiring postgraduate study for recruitment.
