About this course


Course option

3years

Distance learning (full-time) | 2019

If you are passionate about the physical wellbeing of animals, confident in handling both large and small domestic species and enjoy interacting with owners, carers, trainers and the veterinary profession, this course could be the first step towards an exciting career.
Veterinary physiotherapists now work in a range of settings – vet practices, therapy centres & independent practice.
BCA’s unique 3-year course combines online lectures and distance learning, with practical sessions and incremental training. This progressive approach combined with robust academic skills also prepares students for progression into postgraduate education and/or the field of research.
The primary focus is companion animals, mainly horses, dogs and cats, however a much wider range of species - including livestock, birds and exotics - is also considered as these are often encountered in practice.
