This program is for students of the University of South Australia studying in the Bachelor of Physiotherapy. Entry is by invitation for students with a competitive GPA.
Physiotherapists assess, treat and prevent human movement disorders across various areas of practise including sports, musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory and neurological conditions, in people of all ages.
The Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours) program will train you to work as a member of a health care team and also as a first-contact practitioner concerned with the prevention and treatment of injury and illness. You will learn from registered physiotherapists in a supportive environment, including our on-campus Physiotherapy Clinics, and develop a diverse skill set in preparation for professional practise.
You will also independently develop a research proposal, conduct a research project and write a thesis under the supervision of University of South Australia researchers.
Graduates of this program are eligible to apply to the Master of Advanced Clinical Physiotherapy. A graduate entry program to physiotherapy is also available to graduates of other bachelor degrees.
