Unfortunately, physiotherapy is only offered at a diploma level here in Singapore. However, being a recognised qualification, physiotherapy students who graduate from Nanyang Polytechnic are given the opportunity to “upgrade” their diplomas to a degree in just one year. Afterall, we have A level qualifications and the diploma course structure in Singapore is tailored very much like the courses offered abroad.
Here, I would also like to bring your attention to yet another tangible benefit of being a member of the Singapore Physiotherapy Association (SPA).
Curtin University located in Singapore is offering a post-graduate course in Physiotherapy. The university is offering Master in Physiotherapy : Manipulative Therapy. The entry requirements include evidence of SPA membership. Hence, I dare say that the association is reputable and recognised as a main body to represent physiotherapists as well as physiotherapy as a profession here in Singapore.
