The college was founded in 1995 as a platform for mature students to obtain practitioners diploma courses in Remedial Massage – Sports Therapy – Physical Therapy Ireland – Manipulative Therapy – Electrotherapy and Cranial Therapy.
The college is Associated with The Northern Institute of Massage, Bury in Gtr Manchester which is one of the biggest sports injury colleges in Europe. All courses are externally accredited which ensure students obtain the highest qualification. The Irish Institute of Physical Therapy Ireland’s is unique in that it is the only college that offers clinical hours as part of the curriculum, this ensures students get a hands on approach to dealing with patients and the injuries that are presented in clinical situations.
The Northern Institute has tuition centres in Gloucestershire, Londonderry, Cork, Trinidad & Tobago and Kitts & Nevis in the West Indies, Mauritius, Athens and Melbourne.
Lecturers at this college are all fully qualified in their field of practice, the tutors are all Osteopaths, Medical Doctors, Radiographers and Manipulative Therapists and all run full time busy clinics. We believe this is a must for any tutor, as he / she must “be living the job to teach the experience”
The qualifications are internationally recognised and can lead to a university degree in the U.K.
Mature students from all walks of life have studied with us and have enjoyed both the experience and facilities provided by the college.
All our courses are part-time and begin in September / October of each year; all courses run over weekends, a full day Saturday and Sunday 9.30am to 5pm.

Finally a course that offers everything a therapist needs to know to be able to properly assess and treat patients. I’ve been doing courses in Physical Therapy and related subjects for over 10 years in various colleges in Ireland and none compare to the Irish Institute of Physical Therapy. The tutors are to be commended for their work and motivation. In my opinion if your serious about helping patients you need to train at the I.I.P.T.
