About Us


The Academy of Veterinary Physiotherapy was established to deliver high quality, professional education that you can trust. 


As the industry becomes increasingly regulated, it is important that you have confidence in the qualification you undertake.  We have worked hard to ensure that our qualifications meet the required standards across industry stakeholders, ensuring that the qualification you undertake is run to the highest quality standards and is recognised across the industry.

Our aim is to provide accessible, affordable, flexible and achievable education that is properly regulated and approved, professional, and of outstanding quality, delivering results for the industry, for animal owners and for learners.

Why Train With Us?

We believe that certain things are important when delivering our courses:


That your qualification is of the correct level and standard for you to be able to practice within the industry, that it is recognised by insurers, industry registers and professional associations and will continue to be so.

That you receive the highest quality, up to date education, giving you the skills and knowledge necessary to become a successful practitioner.

That education can also be fun!  We pride ourselves on our supportive, fun and friendly approach. 

You are making a serious investment in your future, we will match that commitment.  We aim to deliver learning in an informal, friendly way that enables you to achieve your potential.

That your learning has to fit in around you.  We offer a highly flexible blended-learning approach, allowing you to progress through your course in your own time and at your own pace.   There is a requirement to travel to attend face-to-face training at set locations, but there will always be a degree of flexibility.

That you receive the support you need throughout your training and also as you embark on your new career.  You will have access to our highly qualified team through one-to-one sessions, study groups, online lectures, face-to-face training and coaching sessions.

Our courses cover multiple species.  Whilst the majority of us work with horses and dogs, awareness of physiotherapy is growing and expanding into farm animals and other small companion animals.  Whilst you may choose to specialise later on in your career, our qualification will enable you to work with all animals.
