The Bachelor of Physiotherapy/Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science is a 5-year full-time program that prepares graduates to become effective, culturally-appropriate practitioners with a focus on the Physiotherapist-client relationship. In addition to the Bachelor of Physiotherapy, this double degree with Exercise & Sport Science allows students the opportunity to explore and develop advanced knowledge, skills and abilities in the analysis of physical activity, exercise prescription and health in sport. This program includes a suite of foundational courses which align with specialised Physiotherapy, Exercise/Sports Science-specific courses, practicum opportunities and clinical placement experiences. There is a strong focus on ethical and professional communication and behaviours as well as on development of high-level communication skills with clients and as part of collaborative multi-disciplinary practice. The program also has a strong focus on evidence-based and reflective practice ensuring graduates will be well prepared to meet the challenge of current and future health provision across the many clinical and non-clinical areas in which Physiotherapists are employed. Graduates will be eligible for registration as a Physiotherapist with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA).
