Physiotherapists are health care professionals who focus on prevention, assessment and treatment of physical disorders and the promotion of movement and health.
The degree has five themes of study:
  • ​Personal and professional development
  • Population, society and health
  • Fundamental knowledge of health science
  • Applied practice & Research


The Physiotherapy Degree is based on a fully integrated curriculum and includes interdisciplinary studies. In Year 1, the curriculum is structured around patient centred learning. Conditions for which people typically seek physiotherapy, provide the context for integrating learning about biomedical sciences and physiotherapy skills. In the later years of the course, the focus moves from campus based patient scenarios and observational visits, to learning in a clinical environment. Graduates develop a skill set and are well-equipped to continue learning.
