Australia We are currently one of a small number of UK physiotherapy courses that the Australian Physiotherapy Council (APC) has deemed equivalent on individual application to a pre-registration physiotherapy course in Australia. Each individual application is assessed by the APC and potentially each programme cohort given equivalency on a "course year" basis.
UK honours degree 2:1 (or equivalent) in biological exercise or related sciences. Qualification must include coverage of human physiology and experience of the process of research. A diploma or degree in physiotherapy is not appropriate.
