Bachelor Degree

Course description

Duration
4 years
Study mode
On-campus
Next start date
September
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.

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.

The course itself was great. Teaching staff could have been better. Support during placements was very poor. Overall it was quite a comprehensive course and prepared you to join the workforce

No provision of extra material to place us in better position for work in comparison to other universities offering similar course or the undergraduate option. The course needed more anatomy units. Less mental health units. Increased practicals to better position students to learn. No provision or direction for courses or websites that offer increased knowledge in specialised areas. No soft tissue units despite this being a key aspect of occupational therapy in not just soft tissue but also hand therapy, pain management for aged care and no positioning for paediatrics

Amazing teachers and ever unit was relevant to the OT jobs I've had since graduating. Fantastic practical opportunities also
Student review published August 2018
I think the course itself is rewarding Requires a lot of commitments, patients and delications to duties and responsibilities becoming a nurse . I have experience lot of knowledge and skills in providing care for my patients while on my clinical practices. Sometimes challenging at the end of your studies is rewarding
