Southern Cross University is proud to announce the launch of our new Bachelor of Physiotherapy, commencing in 2025.

This degree will equip you with the knowledge and skills to become a highly sought-after physiotherapist. You'll gain a deep understanding of human anatomy, physiology, and movement, alongside expertise in exercise prescription, pain management, and rehabilitation techniques.

You'll gain practical experience through extensive hands-on learning in our modern facilities and supervised clinical placements. This ensures you graduate with the confidence to excel in various healthcare settings – from hospitals and clinics where you'll provide treatment and ongoing care to sporting organisations and private practices where you'll manage injury and prevention strategies.

Applications for the Bachelor of Physiotherapy are now open.
