Programme introduction

The Physiotherapy programme teaches students to assess and treat patients with temporary or long-term physical injuries, movement disorders or disabilities. The goal is to achieve the highest possible degree of recovery, activity, participation and quality of life. Graduates may work independently or as a member of a health care team, as a Physiotherapist. There are currently more than 100 students from over 30 different countries studying Physiotherapy, at Hanze UAS. The majority of students studying Physiotherapy are European. However, many students also come from Asia, the United States of America, Australia and the Middle East.

Course overview

During the first year the programme focuses on preparing students for the Physiotherapy profession. Medical-biology and physiotherapeutic subjects will be reviewed, by studying various types of patients. You will start studying subjects such as psychology, sociology, psychopathology and communication skills.
During your second year you will study both theory and methods of treatment, in more in-depth. Every block will be completed with an exam, as in the first year.

During year 3 and the first semester of year 4, you will take the minor Physiotherapy and Adults, you will start your work placement and you will also have to choose an exchange programme or minor. It's possible to choose an exchange programme or minor abroad at one of our partner universities, or at Hanze UAS, Groningen. For example the minors Global Health & Quantified Self, Healthy Ageing or Sports.

In the last semester of year 4 you will work on your graduation assignment in combination with your final work placement.
