Diploma in Animal Physiotherapy

We offer full training in Animal Physiotherapy with our Level 6 equivalent UK Rural Skills Accredited, Diploma.


The Diploma consists of a theory and practical element.

Theory element

Students are required to complete and pass 4 units (10 modules) including a research project. This element will be assessed by end of unit assignments and a theory exam at the end of the course. This element of the course is fully flexible. Course tutors are on hand for continual support and guidance.

Practical element

The Diploma in animal physiotherapy can be completed from anywhere in the world. In addition to our practical training venues in the UK we also have training bases all over the world.

Time allocation

The modules are designed to be flexible and can be studied at the students’ own pace. The number of hours to complete the course is 3000 which gives the individual 300 credits on completion.

United Kingdom

The practical training is not constructed in consecutive weeks. However, block training sessions can be arranged if necessary. Practical training will be given by The College of Animal Physiotherapy and will be delivered by a mixture of group practical days and shadowing. This course is designed to be flexible so that students can continue with employment. However, days off work are usually necessary and students in full time employment should be prepared to use up annual leave and to travel round the UK to attend practical training.

International students

International students are an important part of the college and we have trainers across most of the world now. Practical training with these trainers can be arranged through the college but we do encourage students to come to the UK for intensive training and their final exam.
