Talk on 1-Year Degree Conversion In Australia/UK for NYP Physiotherapy Students

Posted on Updated on

Date: 29th June 2011
Time: 4.00PM – 5.00PM
Venue: NYP LT-K3

1. Universities offering STRICTLY 1-year conversion programmes in Australia and the UK
2. Universities that MAY offer exemptions/advanced standing
3. Universities offering masters programmes specialising in Musculoskeletal, Sports, Cardiorespiratory and Neurological aspects of Physiotherapy.

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.

You may find out more about the Masters programme offered by Curtin Singapore here.

(It's CLARE, actually.)

    Interesting to see how the education standards vary from country to country…
