The Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) at the University of Sydney is a four-year full-time degree which incorporates significant clinical and professional fieldwork opportunities, providing hands-on experience with real clients in a supervised environment. This allows students to combine the academic components of the course with the practical abilities required of the profession.

Clinical education provides candidates with the opportunity to complement the knowledge and skills acquired in the academic segments of the course. This is achieved through the assessment and treatment of patients in clinical settings under the supervision and guidance of clinical educators. Candidates in the Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) undertake clinical placements in NSW Health facilities in the Sydney Metropolitan area, rural areas and or outer Sydney as well as private practices and community facilities. All candidates undertake at least one rural and/or regional placement. Candidates complete their five practicum placements in three of the four five-week block placements in Semester 2 of third year, and two of the four five-week blocks in Semester 1 of fourth year.

In addition, eligible candidates have the opportunity to take part in the FHS Abroad program which involves academic study and a four- to six-week placement with non-government organisations and other development agencies in one of a small number of countries in South and South East Asia. This 6 credit point elective unit of study is available to candidates in their senior years and offers a hands-on understanding of global health challenges in an overseas community through work with two well-established Australian volunteer agencies.
