Bachelor of Physiotherapy

The Bachelor of Physiotherapy is a four-year, full-time degree that focuses on the physiotherapist-client relationship and is highly practical in its orientation. As a student in the School of Physiotherapy, you will undertake a comprehensive program, including specialised physiotherapy studies, behavioural and health sciences, and clinical development. Upon graduation, you will be eligible for registration as a physiotherapist with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA) and full membership of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.

Are you the kind of person who wants to make a career helping others be the best they can be? Do you dream of joining a profession that makes exciting therapeutic advancements every day? Or perhaps you want to help top athletes recover from injury and regain their place in a top international sporting competition?

At Notre Dame, we explore every avenue of physiotherapy practice in your on-campus studies and 1200 hours of clinical practice (practicum). 

You will develop clinical assessment and intervention skills in laboratories, simulated learning environments, and through exposure to patients in physiotherapy practices, hospitals or community health settings in both urban and rural centres.
