Programme profile

This programme is run at the European School of Physiotherapy. This accelerated programme has been specifically designed for students who wish to complete their studies within a short period, but you should note that the programme is high pressure with short holidays breaks.

Studying at the ESP means that you are taught a combination of theoretical subjects and practical skills from the beginning. Physiotherapy concerns a broad field of different activities. Each year of the programme starts with a period of training and theory and is concluded by practical experience in an internship. The programme includes three internships of which two are completed outside the Netherlands.

This is three-year accelerated programme. This programme is very intensive: in this accelerated 3 year programme, each academic year comprises 48 weeks of 53 hours each. You will complete an internship during the summer at an associated clinic in your home country or elsewhere.
