Bachelor of Physiotherapy

Advance human health

The Physiotherapy program takes an evidence-based approach to health sciences teaching, learning and research, to produce professionals who can truly help clients and communities to lead healthier, more productive lives. 

Being evidence-based is one of the most important trends in healthcare today and is a strong feature of the Western Sydney University Physiotherapy program.

Practical experience

Practical experience takes place in first and second years. By third and fourth year you will undertake clinical placements in clinical practice. You will then return to the University for a final module that explores the lessons of the clinical experience for a professional career, focusing on professional, technical, industrial and legal topics, and complex cases.

Students are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and related expenses during clinical placements, which are located in metropolitan and rural areas of NSW.
