Physiotherapy – Recognized Europe-wide

This foundational university degree program enables students to gain a practically-oriented qualification in physiotherapy. After completion of the Bachelor’s and Master’s programs, graduates can apply to become licensed physiotherapists Europe-wide.

What do physiotherapists do?

As a graduate in Physiotherapy you will have an in-depth knowledge of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system and other health impairment mechanisms. You plan therapeutic measures and rehabilitation based on medical diagnoses as well as your own observations. Their domain includes muscles, ligaments and joint ailments involving injury, illnesse or physical disability.

Furthermore, in order to prevent poor posture and movement deficits which may develop and become health problems, you can also work preventively with healthy “patients.” These measures include (amongst others) massage, breathing exercises, thermo-, electro-, and hydrotherapy, but physical activity forms the basis of most physiotherapy interventions.

Graduating with an academic and internationally-recognized training from LUNEX University, you will be able to fulfill high standards of intervention and employ evidence-based methods that are a part of best practice. Leading positions are also open to you.
