Bachelor in Physiotherapy

General

Program Description

Physiotherapists are highly responsible and knowledgeable health care professionals. They help people at any stage of their life to develop, maintain and regain movement and functional ability in case of injuries, diseases, disability, and aging, and thus, help them optimise their quality of life. They also work in public health and prevention.

Based on their extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, human movement incl. biomechanics, pathology and a wide range of assessment techniques and treatment approaches, they diagnose health problems, work together with their patients to identify goals, monitor their patients' progress, and support their patients in achieving those goals.

Why study Physiotherapy at LUNEX?

Our Physiotherapy Bachelor programme is in accordance with the Bologna Process of higher education, and therefore, recognized throughout Europe. The LUNEX Physiotherapy Teaching Team consists of a truly international group of specialists within their fields who will help you learn and understand.

At LUNEX University, the language of tuition is English. This allows students to engage effectively with the international research evidence-base of the profession and gives them the opportunity to work anywhere in the world. We prepare our students to meet the highest standards of physiotherapy practice and be able to compete and thrive in the labour market internationally.

LUNEX University also offers its students the opportunity to study Physiotherapy in the heart of Europe in a country that is extremely open to people from all over the world and to gain experiences of different countries’ health care systems thanks to our international clinical placement partners.

Physiotherapy study programme

The Bachelor in Physiotherapy begins with an introduction week to the study. Students are then progressively guided through the foundations of the profession in subject-specific modules and gain in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology of the neurological, musculoskeletal and cardio-respiratory systems before they learn assessment, treatment and clinical reasoning skills.

Throughout their studies, students learn to study and work independently and scientifically and acquire team-working including interdisciplinary competencies, which will be essential for their future career. This is both during taught modules and in between teaching blocks in order to enhance and deepen their learning.

Students also gain hands-on experience through different practical teaching sessions at LUNEX, as well as working with real patients during three clinical placements. Contact with real people with health problems is often the catalyst for students' choice of topic for their Bachelor’s Thesis at the end of their Bachelor studies.
