Hi Foram shah,

Thank you for your message.

MSc Clinical Exercise Physiology provides you the opportunity to carry out research. It focuses on using the scientific rationale to design, implement and supervise exercise programming for those with chronic diseases, conditions and/or physical shortcomings to help treat a patient. More often than not, you will get to conduct your own research on an area of your interest.

MSc Physiotherapy also offers the opportunity to undertake research. It essentially helps to build on the knowledge and skills attained from BSc Physiotherapy.

The difference between both is that Physiotherapy takes a more hands-on approach (e.g. assesses, diagnosis, interactive with the patients) whereas Physiology focuses more on the rationale of treatment. Opting for Physiotherapy takes more of an academic approach as it looks into the medical sciences aspect. You can find out more information here to help understand.
Both courses are available for 1 year full-time and 2 years part-time. This also depends on where you choose to study.
However, looking up the courses on the Coventry University website, the courses on available that align with what you're looking for are Advancing Physiotherapy Practice MSc, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy MSc and Physiotherapy and Leadership (pre-registration) MSc (2 years full-time). There are no courses on offer for Clinical Exercise Physiology, there are other universities that offer the course, such as Northumbria University, University of Salford, and Liverpool John Moore's University.

In terms of which course would be better for Physiotherapy will depend on what you're hoping to achieve in your career and what you want to get out of the course. Hopefully, this information will provide some insight.

Hi Foram shah,

Thank you for getting back to me.

Both universities offering MSc Clinical Exercise Physiology look fantastic! It may be best to contact the university or attempt to communicate with the lecturers at these universities to find out more information about these courses so that you get an idea of the course and what it involves. Speaking with the lecturers or attending an open day will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about the university and what the course can offer you that isn't mentioned on the website. This may hugely benefit you if you're unsure which university to go to.
For example, are these courses accreditated - are they recognized by an association such as the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences? The courses on offer, do the assessments fit in line with how you want to be assessed?

I hope this helps!
