The Physiotherapy (Hons) programme at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland is open to applications from students from all over the world who want to become physiotherapists. As with other programmes at RCSI, we have a very international student body.


What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession focused on maintaining or improving mobility, physical abilities, fitness and quality of life. Physiotherapists use their knowledge of anatomy and physiology to employ movement, exercise therapy and other physical methods. Some countries refer to physiotherapy as 'physical therapy'.

Physiotherapists work with people of all ages who are affected by injury, illness or disability. They are a key member of the multidisciplinary healthcare team and play an important role in preventive health and maximising function.
