Attending my MSc in Physiotherapy at Cardiff has definitely given me experience to improve my clinical practice. The quality of teaching is excellent and tutors deliver interactive lectures which helped me to understand and develop an in-depth knowledge. I feel my view as a clinician has completely changed and I have become more specialist, so I really appreciate the experience of such a fascinating course.
