Strwythur y cwrs

The MSc Physiotherapy programme is modular, and students must complete 120 credits in the taught component of the programme and a further 60 credits in the dissertation component. 60 credits are core modules, and 60 credits are optional. Taught modules are arranged in block format and run throughout the semester.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.

Blwyddyn un

Ym Mlwyddyn Un byddwch yn cwblhau un modiwl craidd (30 credyd) ac un modiwl dewisol (30 credyd) sy'n cyfateb i 60 credyd.

Blwyddyn dau

Ym Mlwyddyn Dau byddwch yn cwblhau un modiwl craidd ac un modiwl dewisol sy’n cyfateb i 60 credyd.

Blwyddyn tri

Ym Mlwyddyn Tri byddwch yn cwblhau eich traethawd hir o ddewis o dri opsiwn (60 credyd).

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
