Career paths

Increasingly internationally recognised, physiotherapy is still developing and continues to be used for various purposes depending on the place and patients’ needs, but, without doubt, has a positive effect on anyone trying it. Over the past few years new branches and specialisations have arisen enabling physiotherapists to take a specific direction within their profession, which also serves to differentiate them from the competition. Specialisations such as paediatric, neurological or sports physiotherapy are just some examples of how a professional in this field can focus on one or another field, which also involves new business opportunities. With the Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy you will be able to describe, identify, treat and compare health problems that can be responded to with Physiotherapy.
