Study Physiotherapy

A Unique study programme for health and sports physiotherapy

The aim of the programme is to prepare graduates for the profession of a physiotherapist with a unique health and sports focus, for work as university-educated professionals involved in the development of physiotherapy and the promotion of the integration of theory and practice – individuals possessing the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary for lifelong learning in their specialty and for further academic education.

Why choose physiotherapy at our school?

The graduates are highly qualified to work in health care settings as well as in sports. Our university provides professionals with superb theoretical knowledge and practical skills. The focus is not only on preparing future physiotherapists for their future profession but also those professionals who will further develop the field of physiotherapy, and work in academic settings as well as in research.
