    Master of Physiotherapy


    Prepare to register and practise as a physiotherapist.

    Physiotherapists work with people through the lifespan to develop, maintain and restore movement and functional ability.

    The physiotherapy profession has well-established research and evidence-based practice, which you will analyse and apply in this course.

    Our program has a strong clinical focus with teaching mainly embedded within clinical settings across South Australia and has close links with healthcare providers to best prepare you for professional practice as a physiotherapist.

    Emphasis is placed on preparing you to become a contemporary health professional who is able to work effectively across a range of settings, and in metropolitan or rural/remote locations.

    The Master of Science (Physics) consists of 72 units. Students entering with a bachelor degree in the same discipline will be eligible to apply to follow a 54-unit pathway. The topics involve both coursework and research components with core topics focusing on professional studies. These include nuclear and statistical physics, cosmology and optoelectronics, quantum physics, nanotechnology and standards, ethics and compliance. In addition to the core topics, students can choose electives including numerical analysis, methods of applied mathematics, complex analysis and partial differential equations. Students will receive training in advanced research skills and undertake a large independent research project.
