Physiotherapy

During the Physiotherapy programme you will develop knowledge of biomedical science, kinesiology, and behavioural science. With attention for people, your problem-solving ability, and your ambition to continue to develop yourself, you will spend your career helping clients improve their health.

"Studying abroad has giving me the opportunity to travel around Europe while carrying out my clinic affiliations and, of course,during the summer visiting the friends I have made from all over the world.
I decided to study abroad here a Saxion as I love their practical approach in class as for my degree in Physiotherapy I found that the practical approach they have would stand to me more than any other college I looked at."

    Yes, the international one is for students who want to do the programme in English. Nice to know is that in the first year you will also be doing projects with the students of the Dutch physiotherapy programme!

    Hi Sheldon,
    There‚Äôs lots of variety in housing in Enschede as you do have to find your own accommodation. Depending on the house/apartment where you‚Äôre renting, prices can vary from anywhere from 250‚ā¨-500‚ā¨ For rent+utilities? I‚Äôd recommend looking at different student or housing facebook pages to find something! Good luck!

  • Thanks for the reply regarding the minor equivalence.Would it be possible to get this option evaluated right from the start? when applying and know if the minor could be validated with previous education? For this will allow me to compare with other universities and make my choice accordingly.

    Sam
    told 2 months, 1 week ago

    Hi Anthony,

    I don't think that what you are asking is possible - I think the exam board can only look at things from current students as you apply for exemptions through a Saxion platform. I know I can't guarantee it, but it should be fine for you to use previous credits instead of the minor and I would imagine it's the same for other universities.

  • Hello! I‚Äôm a student from Ireland and wanted to know if NOT being a very sporty/ athletic person would be a hindrance in this course? Is there a lot of practical elements? Thank you!
    Sheldon
    asked 2 months, 1 week ago
    Sam
    told 2 months, 1 week ago

    Hi Sheldon,

    In short, no. The physical elements of the job are lifting a leg or an arm during an evaluation, so it really depends on the size of your patient! In general we work on our feet for most of the day, so it's more active than an office job, but less physically demanding than being a joiner, for example.

    However, physiotherapy is a healthcare profession i.e. we look after people's health when it is not optimal. Whilst a lot of the patients we see will not go on a vigorous exercise program, a lot of the treatment or prevention that we provide includes an exercise of some description (e.g. improving strength, balance or coordination, or stretching). Long term treatment usually involves the continual upkeep of a program and I think it would be difficult to get somebody on board with that kind of thing if you don't see the benefits of keeping physically active yourself.

    Hope that helps,
    Sam

  • Hi,I've got a MS and BS in Business & Management.If I apply for the PT BS, would it be possible to get an EXEMPTION for the MINOR part and validate it with the MS and BS that I have got from accredited international schools and entirely taught in English? very important for me to know if possible
    Anthony

    Sam
    told 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hi Anthony,

    Yes, that is a possibility. You won't need to go through the process of applying until around 2nd/3rd year - you just need to send the exam board your transcript and they will decide if it is ok.

    I am in a similar position myself - I can use some previous higher education to count as the minor. I have opted to do a minor though, it's a nice way to direct my education down a road of my own choosing.

    Hope that helps,
    Sam

    Sorry I can't be more specific! The interview is part of the selection process and is really a chance for the staff to get you know you a little better and to see if you would be a good fit for the program.

    Hi Shishir, this should not be a problem - there's no need to go straight into higher education after high school: you can start at any time!

    told 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hi,

    The International class can find their internships wherever they like - it is your own responsibility to do so. I would recommend speaking to some places in person before you start the course so they know who you are - it's much easier than doing everything through email. It is unlikely that you will be paid for your internships as you will be unqualified and usually supervised the while time.

    I would start looking for accommodation as soon as you know you are definitely doing the course. It can be competitive in Enschede, and leaving it until the last minute can be stressful.

    Hope that helps, Sam

  • BSc Physiotherapy related questions:1- Is it possible to start in either January or September of each year? or only in September?2- How many weeks/hours of internship each year? And does the school place us for the internship each year? Can it be anywhere in the world? Many thanks in advance!
    J-M.
    asked 4 months, 2 weeks ago
    Sam
    told 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hi,

    September is the start date for the course.

    Internships:
    1st year - 1x 3week (Feb/March)
    2nd year - 2x 3weeks (Dec + May)
    3rd year - depends on your choice of minor, but no mandatory internship
    4th year - 3x 12weeks - pretty much a full year of placement

    International students usually find their own internships. These can be anywhere you like - the only stipulation is that there is a qualified physiotherapist to be your mentor. One of the last year's placements must also be in a hospital or similar. International students are encouraged to look for their own placements because of the language barrier - it is much better to communicate with patients in a language that they are comfortable with.

    I would recommend arriving with a place in mind, or at least have a few useful contacts. It will help a lot and, in my experience, these things are much easier to organise in person.

    All the best,
    Sam

    I hope that helps and good luck with you application!

    Have you checked the website https://www.saxion.edu/programmes/bachelor/physiotherapy
    There are navigation tabs at the top where it details a lot from the course, including a description of the subjects you will be taking the first 2 years.
    In terms of costs, the website estimates around 400‚ā¨ per year, although from my experience this would be if you do purchase all books brand new. Reality is you might be able to get second hand books from older students or the professor will provide you with the study material required, bringing this cost down considerably.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hello, my name is Jade. I will be studying physiotherapy in Saxion this year. My question is unrelated to the course itself but I didn't know where else I could ask. I was wondering how expensive buses are and is there a student ticket available for the school year? any help would be appreciated! :)
    Jade

    Koen
    told 11 months, 1 week ago

    Hi Jade,

    Nice that you are going to start your studies at Saxion this year!
    A single bus journey paid by debit card can cost around 2 Euros every time if you're travelling within Enschede, which is a bit expensive if you use it every day!
    I recommend you purchase an OV-Chipkaart as soon as you arrive, as you can load it with credit and use that instead to pay all your fares. The system works that you have to tap in and out of the bus, meaning you will only pay according to the distance travelled.
    More information in this at:

    https://www.ov-chipkaart.nl/home-1.htm#/

    Although if you do live in Enschede you will likely not need to take public transport as you could either walk or use a bicycle to get around. The city is not too big!

    Lastly, you may be eligible to get student finance in the Netherlands, even if you're not Dutch or if you're from a non-EU country. Within student finance there is a student travel product, where you get around 95‚ā¨ monthly from Duo which will enable you to travel unlimited during the week or over weekends (your choice). More information on this at:
    https://duo.nl/particulier/student-travel-product/index.jsp
    https://duo.nl/particulier/student-finance/index.jsp

    Note that the student travel product is a loan, although it is converted into a gift if you graduate within 10 years.

    Hope this answer your question!

  • Hi, I've been accepted to the physiotherapy program and intend to attend in the fall. Do you have any tips on how I should prepare for my first year? What subjects did you cover during the first year? Would you recommend purchasing the books in advance?

    Hi JJ,

    First of all congratz!! My advise to you is: do your best and take it all very serious. I liked Pathology the most, and I didn't like physiology that much. I am a book person, so I advise you to buy all the books in advance. But I have to say that some of my classmates haven't bought any books.. I personally disagree with that. You can learn much more in the books then only from the powerpoint.

  • Hey everyone, I'm coming to study at Enschede this August and I have a question regarding housing: should I co-rent a place with the Saxion programme for International Students (in which case I have to pay rent for nearly a year) or is it better to rent a place of my own? Thank you for your help!

    Hey Davide,

    I personally can't advise you, because I still live with my parents. But I can say that there are loads of facebook groups like: kamer gezocht Enschede, kamers Enschede, kamers gezocht/aangeboden. You can apply to those groups and search it by yourself. If you can't find a room there than you should co-rent it with Saxion!

  • Hello! How is it like to study physiotherapy in the Netherlands? What do you prefer about the program? How was it like to study and learn things in english (so not your mother tongue) at the beginning of your first year? Wasn't it hard? How much would you recommend me to apply for this program?

    Hey! Studying physiotherapy in the Netherlands is amazing as there practical approach to teaching the course is what you need as a physiotherapist and that’s what I love about the course. Unfortunately I can’t answers about learning things in English as I am a native speaker! I would highly recommend you to apply you won’t regret it!

  • Hi, i've been recently admited for physiotherapy course in EnschedeSo it's again about housingIs it possible for me to rent a room in advance without coming to Enschede? Or should i do it only when being there?

    Hi Andreea, congratulations in being accepted! ūüôĆ

    It might be easier to get a room if you are already in Enschede. Some students rent a room / AirBNB or hotel for a couple of days until they find a room.

    Hey Evans,

    You will receive an e-mail if you get accepted or not.
    I can't answer the question about the admission fee, you have to call the frontoffice at: 088-0193525.
    Finding an apartment in Enschede isn't as hard and expensive as by example in Amsterdam. You can search on facebook groups or on by example: Kamernet.nl

    Hello Meike,
    You can apply for the international course even though you don't have your Abi. It is necessary to hand over your abi before September 1st 2018. I'm following the dutch Physiotherapy course, so I can't give you exact information about the intake talks. It is good to prepare yourself the best you can for the intake!

  • For the saxion clinical placements, it is done in the first year till the last year? And does saxion offer placements or do students need to find their own? It is a requirement to choose either paediatrics or orthopaedics, or can you do one type for all placements?

  • What are the lessons and exams like fkr first year? For example how many theory lessons and the level of difficulty as well as exams.
    Mazvita
    asked 2 years, 10 months ago
    Marlies
    told 2 years, 10 months ago

    Hello Mazvita,

    Physical therapy is regarded as one of the most difficult HBO studies in the Netherlands. The level is therefore high. Every three months you get your theory exams. These exams are difficult, but if you have a 5,4 or less the first time you can make them again. In the first year you will get tests in anatomy, physiology, psychology and pathology. In the first year you will have a practical lesson about 8 hours a week, the rest are lectures and group assignments.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask them!

    Regards, Marlies

    Hey Maria, Enschede is a very student friendly town there is loads of things to do around the place! I love the way the course has a more practical focus then theory as i would be weaker with theory subjects than practical subjects! The student environment is very welcoming!

  • I have a few questions:In general how is the physiotherapy course taught (Self study, practical, theory)? How many people are in the class?Do the professors have a good level of english?How many days do you go to class and how many hours a day?

    Hey Frank! It's not hard to apply for the course as the system is fairly straight forward- but please ensure you apply for the international physiotherapy course not the dutch one ūüėÉ You need to apply as soon as possible and prepare a motivational letter showing that you determined to be the best possible physio you could be! I am not 100% sure but I think the system has changed to a first come first served basis this year! I would highly recommend the course to you as its 85% practical based unlike other countries! If you have anymore questions let me no ūüėÉ
    Hope this helps you
