Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

This programme aims to nurture professionals who can provide physiotherapy services that promote their clients’ health and meet society’s health-care needs. Our graduates have the knowledge, skills and professional attitudes required to practise physiotherapy reliably, ethically and effectively. They are also lifelong learners and active consumers of professional and scientific literature, which enables them to develop professionally 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 Physiotherapy curriculum is forward-looking with a strong scientific base. Clinical 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 who undertake exchanges for clinical placements. Year Three and Four students can undertake five-week clinical placements at universities internationally. In previous years, placements have been organised at universities in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Taiwan, Thailand, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA.
