Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

This programme aims to nurture professionals capable of providing physiotherapy services to promote clients’ health and meet society’s healthcare needs. Our graduates possess the knowledge, skills, and professional attitudes required to practise physiotherapy reliably, ethically and effectively. They are also lifelong learners and active consumers of the professional and scientific literature, which enables them to develop in the profession through continuing education and by participating in investigative and evaluative projects. Their sense of social and professional responsibility is further reflected in their efforts to educate clients, the public, and the next generation of therapists.

Programme Characteristics

The curriculum is forward-looking, with a strong scientific base. Clinical education and university-based education are integrated using the latest teaching and learning resources.

Placement Opportunities

The department  trains students to develop global perspectives and actively encourages them to seize opportunities to experience life overseas. The department also fully supports students to undertake exchanges for clinical placements. Year 3/4 students can undertake 5-week clinical placements at overseas universities; in previous years, placements have been organised at universities in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Taiwan, Thailand, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA.
