Further your skills in sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy

If healthcare appeals to you and you love working with people, a degree in physiotherapy might be the perfect fit for you.

Physiotherapists provide people with advice and treatment to prevent injury and disability, and respond clinically when an injury or disability occurs. Studying your Master of Physiotherapy at Griffith will give you the knowledge and tools to assess, diagnose, treat and manage disease, disability and injury, and assist in prevention and rehabilitation.

The degree is fully accredited with the Australian Physiotherapy Council. Upon graduation you can undertake postgraduate studies in the area of musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy.

Study physiotherapy at Griffith

Studying the 4-year Bachelor of Physiotherapy at Griffith will transform your life. You’ll study physiotherapy courses from your first trimester to develop your professional identity.

You'll study in inter-professional teams with other health students to ensure that you develop teamwork skills so that you are work-ready. Studying in small class sizes and using the latest evidence-based teaching techniques such as simulation, you'll be well prepared for over 20 weeks of hands-on practice work experience.

You'll be taught by clinical, research and academic experts using student-centred and active learning approaches. While you're developing leadership skills, you'll join a global community of physiotherapists.

As a Griffith Physiotherapy graduate, you'll be well prepared for where the profession is going rather than where it's been.

Luke Licht

Physiotherapy graduate

The road to becoming a physiotherapist was a long one for Luke Licht, but he is now building his career in AFL, a sport which he is passionate about. Luke is from Tasmania and has always worked hard to achieve his goals. His personal drive enabled him to land a job with the Brisbane Lions even before he graduated from his Bachelor of Exercise Science/Master of Physiotherapy degree at Griffith. 'I found the exercise science part of the degree really hard, but I've come to understand the importance of having that background in giving me more confidence to talk the talk as a therapist,' he says. 'The professional placements and education at Griffith were instrumental in setting me up to do exactly what I always wanted.'
