What will I learn?

Graduates will be eligible to register to practice as a Physiotherapist within Australia following accreditation. Students will undertake biomedical, physical and behavioural science courses as well as physiotherapy academic and clinical courses. Before graduation, students will be required to demonstrate physiotherapy knowledge and skills required for entry-level clinical physiotherapy practice.

This program provides an innovative, student-centred and employability-focused curriculum with a strong emphasis on client-centred and evidence based-practice as well as experiential and inter-professional learning.

My career opportunities

Physiotherapists aim to enhance the movement and function of individuals and populations across the lifespan especially when actual or potential impairments and disability relate to the musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, and neurological systems. Physiotherapists work in various settings such as hospitals, private practices, community health centres, schools, sporting teams and the armed forces. Physiotherapists may also be employed at universities to teach or conduct research or consult for industry and government bodies.

Pathways to further study

Bachelor of Physiotherapy graduates may be eligible to apply for the Master of Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy (5269) after undertaking at least two years of clinical experience, 40 hours of continuing development points with the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) and whilst maintaining registration to practice with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA).
