Physiotherapy bachelor degree programme
Would you like to help improve people’s quality of life? Our Physiotherapy bachelor programme provides you with the tools you need.
Physiotherapy is a growing profession – especially in industrialised countries, due to the increasing rate of chronic conditions affecting the cardiovascular system, metabolism and the biliary system, for example. In this three-year, German-language programme, you will acquire the knowledge and skills you need to work as a physiotherapy professional.
The degree programme: Bachelor of Science in Health Studies (BSc)
During your degree you’ll learn about many different clinical fields, with a special focus on internal medicine, neurology, trauma surgery and orthopaedics. You’ll have the opportunity to apply what you learn in the course of practice placements at a variety of locations.
In semesters 5 and 6 you’ll focus on specific patient types, as well as physiotherapy education and research.
The programme will equip you for high-grade physiotherapy positions in the Austrian system or to work as an independent practitioner.
To provide successful therapy you need to be able to build up a complete picture of the patient’s situation. You’ll work towards this with our help. Our case studies, which simulate treatment situations and develop your skills in a controlled environment, are an extremely valuable part of this.
