Physios help people get back on their feet, treating patients from all walks of life – with all kinds of conditions. Sound rewarding? We think so too. In this degree, you’ll learn what it takes to become a physiotherapist and start changing lives for the better. Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which sees human movement as central to the health and wellbeing of individuals of all ages. The physiotherapists’ expertise helps to identify and maximise movement potential through health promotion, preventive healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation. This course prepares you to be a physiotherapist and exceeds the minimum of 1,000 clinical practice hours you need to qualify. The course provides observational experience of professional practice in Year 1 then 12 weeks of hands-on practice education in Year 2 and 17 weeks in Year 3, all supervised by trained physiotherapy clinical educators. Our developmental curriculum is designed to empower and teach you how to assess and treat patients and to communicate with both patients and other members of the multi-professional team professionally and effectively.
