Physiotherapy is a health profession concerned with prevention, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of conditions and injuries that affect human function and movement. Physiotherapists plan and administer treatment programs to restore function or minimise dysfunction, which occurs across the lifespan due to illness, disease, ageing or injury.

The Bachelor of Physiotherapy (IHCAP) requires you to complete 108 credit points. This will take 5 years if you study full time.
