As a result of our new internationalization initiative, we are offering a new training programme in our Physiotherapy Degree. Ninety-six credits out of a total of two hundred and forty are taught in English. According to our policy, the maximum number of students admitted to this international group is going to be 20 for the first year. We will be providing special counselling and support for international students and they will be taught in small groups so that they can receive quality advice and support.

This new training programme gives  students the opportunity to develop skills through training based  on a problem-solving approach and exposes students to new technology and research. Moreover, students receive over 1,000 hours of work placement as part of the programme, out of which 900 hours are spent within the framework of collaboration schemes with foreign universities in the student’s countries.

Career opportunities

It is the physiotherapists’ job to use treatment involving physical means and factors within their area of specialisation with a view to achieve the patient’s rehabilitation. Problems treated may vary from somatic dysfunctions or disabling conditions as well as prevention of these problems aiming at treating the whole person, not just the problem area.
