The degree programs Applied Therapeutic Sciences in Speech and Language Pathology B.Sc. and Physiotherapy B.Sc. equip qualified clinicians for a highly rewarding career in the modernized health service that meets the changing requirements within the European Union and beyond.

We take a student-centered approach to the development of knowledge, thinking and professional identity and multiprofessional competences.

The degree program delivers more advanced topics such as research methods and statistics, evidence-based practice, and subject specific skills such as service provision for culturally and linguistically diverse children in speech and language pathology, and pain management in physiotherapy.

The curriculum promotes research skills, enabling students to evaluate and add to the evidence-base for the SLT / Physiotherapy profession. The program prepares students well for future master degrees and leadership roles.

Speech-Language Pathologists and Physiotherapists provide diagnosis, treatment, suppost and care for children and adults, that is across the lifespan.
