Physiotherapists deal with improvement and maintenance of as well as restoration after functional disorders of the human body. Physiotherapy is a growing profession – especially in industrialised countries, due to the increasing rate of chronic conditions affecting the cardiovascular system, metabolism and the biliary system, for example. In our 3-year, German-language Physiotherapy bachelor programme, you will acquire the knowledge and skills you need to work as a physiotherapy professional.

What to expect from the degree programme

In semesters 1-3 you will acquire the theoretical foundations required for your practice placements, which take place later in the programme. In semesters 4-6 you can apply what you’ve learned – at established practice placement providers in Austria and abroad. During your placements you’ll gain experience in various specialist areas, such as internal medicine, neurology, trauma surgery and sports medicine, and orthopaedics. 

At the end of the programme (semesters 5-6), you’ll study familiar topics in more depth and choose specialisms (health promotion, sports for the disabled)
