Who studies Veterinary Physiotherapy? The Veterinary Physiotherapy degree is an exciting addition to Harper Adams' range of courses. This course would be of interest to students who have a passion for caring for animals, enjoy interacting with animal owners, the veterinary profession and others involved in the care and treatment of animals. Physiotherapists analyse and assess animals' posture, movement and locomotory function, and treat musculo-skeletal problems such as muscular damage, back pain, fractures, some neurological conditions and sporting injuries. Physiotherapy can also help animals recover following surgery, and enhance working or athletic ability. Physiotherapists often work with a range of animals, from horses to dogs, cats and occasionally livestock.

Each module you study is assessed through a combination of written or oral individual assignments, group projects, and summative written examinations as is the normal for most university courses. This course, as with other clinical taught courses, also uses practical competency tests (OSPEs/OSCEs) to assess your ability to carry out practical tasks that are relevant to the veterinary physiotherapist. The requirements for entry to NAVP membership include successful completion of the course and of the Skills Enhancement Log (SELs) which are a record of competency of practical skills focused on Veterinary Physiotherapy.
Application deadline details:
One of the best agricultural universities in the UK - you'll get so much practical experience here. The staff really care for you, and there are great opportunities to be had. The countryside surrounding the university is so beautiful, with Ironbridge Gorge a particularly gobsmacking highlight. There’s a few pubs in Newport itself, but not much else although the SU bar is great fun and you are a cheap taxi away from Birmingham or Wolverhampton, which are amazing cities to go out in.

INCREDIBLE. When I first looked around Harper they talked about the 'harper spirit'. This is a real thing! Everyone at harper will help eachother out and there is a real feeling of 'togetherness'. I honestly cannot reccomend Harper Adams enough.
