This study is officially registered as bachelor study Health in Physiotherapy. After successful completion, you will be awarded with a Bachelor degree of Science.
Programme in brief
Walking, lifting things, participating in sporting activities – these are all things that you may do every day without any thought. Usually, you will only visit a Physiotherapist if something goes wrong, such as if you have suffered an injury when playing sports, if you are troubled by a hernia, or if you are experiencing pain whilst walking, but you have no idea what may be causing the pain.
A Physiotherapist helps people to move without pain and investigates how you may be able to prevent any further complaints from occurring in the future.
What to expect from us
We will teach you a range of things, including all of the aspects that you will be likely to encounter as a Physiotherapist.
