Entry level physical therapy education programmes

This listing contains the contact details for the entry level professional physical therapy education programmes recognised by WCPT member organisations.  Where the programmes are listed on the websites of WCPT member organisations, a link is provided to the list.  In other cases the lists are available for download by country.  The lists have been prepared by the WCPT member organisation or from WCPT records.

An entry level programme of education brings a person to the point of being able to practice as a physical therapist in the country of education.  Entry requirements, length of the education programmes and the final qualification obtained may vary within and across countries.

Inclusion on this list does not imply that one programme is equivalent to another or that graduates will be eligible to practice in another jurisdiction.  Entry to practice requirements may be obtained from the relevant WCPT member organisation.
