Because of its November intake, UQ Physiotherapy has an earlier application deadline than most other programs. So this is just a friendly reminder that the application deadline is approaching soon—Tuesday, May 30!
UQ physio is definitely one of the most popular degrees undertaken by Canadian students. The Master of Physiotherapy Studies program introduces graduates to the profession of physiotherapy and its key concepts in intensive mode during an initial summer semester—end of November, since summer in Australia begins December 1. This degree focuses on developing core knowledge and skills in the areas of musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiorespiratory and physiotherapy across the lifespan, and integrates this knowledge and skill and application of clinical reasoning in supervised clinical practice. The program also incorporates advanced training in clinical reasoning, independent research, and health management.
