The Degree in International Physiotherapy: the first qualification in English that improves your job prospects

In a world as globalised as the current one, English has become a communication tool par excellence, both in the academic and professional field. In particular, in the publishing or scientific sphere, publications in English are those which obtain a larger number of citations and greater impact compared to any other language. This reality is borne very much in mind in the Degree in International Physiotherapy from the School of New Interactive Technologies (Escola de Noves Tecnologies Interactives – ENTI-UB) and the University School of Health and Sport (Escola Universitària de la Salut i l’Esport – EUSES-UdG), the first university qualification entirely in English that combines physiotherapy with the new technologies.

Without a doubt, mastery of this ‘universal’ language will considerably improve your access to the jobs market, broadening your professional horizons in Europe or in the rest of the world.  Thus, as a result of the international focus of this Degree, you will be able to devote yourself to the field of teaching, to scientific research, to the medical sector and health sphere, to the sports area- in matters of rehabilitation or retraining -and to running your own health and physiotherapy centre, in any country in the world.

In addition, at the hands of a teaching staff with an international profile, coming from prestigious universities in Australia, the United Kingdom and Germany, with an extensive academic and professional experience, you will learn to apply the latest technological advances in e-health to the field of physiotherapy, including all the new technology trends such as Serious Games or new apps applied to health. Learning about the new ICT applied to healthcare, will provide you with the know-how you need to be able to create new resources or technological applications such as: mobile apps, software or three-dimensional modelling.

In addition, in the course of these studies, you will obtain an overview of treatments on physiotherapy that are applied in other countries, thanks to the workshops, seminars and courses, presented by internationally renowned experts. From the fourth year onwards, you will also have the opportunity to experience the reality of the profession by means of practical training internships in the best centres specialising in physiotherapy in Catalonia and France. And if you like, you can also study at renowned international universities, either via the ERASMUS programmes or by studying a postgraduate course in distinguished universities around the world.

In short, the Degree in International Physiotherapy offers you a double added value: the application of new technologies and the specific training in the English language, a language that becomes a key for opening the doors to your professional future, both on the national and European jobs market, and on an international level.
