The post-graduate masters degree in Physiotherapy is to provide focused clinical and practical training to students in preparation for professional practice. It is essential, therefore, which students entering the Masters of Physiotherapy have an undergraduate background in human physiology, anatomy and human movement. This major provides students with a combination of undergraduate options (nominated by the physiotherapy convenor) to prepare students accepted into Physiotherapy for intensive clinical education and training.
A first year statistics unit is recommended for entry into Sport & Performance Psychology. Human Biology and Coaching Science students will already have Data Analysis in Science or Measurement in Sport (respectively). Students from other degrees interested in this major should consider including a first year statistics unit.
