Why study this course

This course provides the learning experiences to gain the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours expected of an entry level physiotherapist. It has a hybrid structure using curriculum based learning to efficiently learn foundation knowledge together with case studies and clinical practice to integrate knowledge into clinical decision making. It also emphasises evidence-based practice and encourages students in critical thinking. Prospective applicants are advised that the program requires full participation in laboratory classes where manual skills, including the ability to lift and support severely disabled patients independently and topics such as surface anatomy are presented. Essential learning strategies demand that all students disrobe appropriately in order to act as subjects for their peer group, have the ability to participate fully and are willing to act as subjects for their peer group and as mock patients for other students.

Student review
The degree was very comprehensive. First year involved all of the basics needed to do the degree and it amped up from there. The next two years delved into the specifics but what was the best was how much practical experience we were able to get in our final year compared to a lot of other unis.
