Programme details

It is the aim of physiotherapy to optimise the individual freedom of movement without pain and thus the patients‚Äô independence, which positively influences their quality of living. The „Physiotherapy“ Bachelor study programme teaches the students the ability to plan therapeutic measures on the one hand and on the other to motivate patients to accompany them on their way back to Independence.

As well as expertise in technical methodology, the students acquire socio-communicative skills such as conflict management, the ability of self-reflection, team, capacity for teamwork, role distance etc. Furthermore they learn the fundamental concepts of scientific work. In the accompanying internship the student is offered the opportunity to realise and to intensify the acquired know how under expert guidance.

The study programme is divided into modules, which are partly offered on an inter-disciplinary basis. The curriculum is characterised by a balance between in-depth theoretical education, science and work experience. Graduates of the study programme are in a position, to expertly carry out the allocated tasks, while combining the know how from the various disciplines. They have learned to act reflectively and autonomously in their professional daily routine and to act in accordance with their code of conduct.
