Overview

The Master of Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy at KU Leuven aims to train graduates to conduct evidence-based practice in physiotherapy and to develop expertise in a specific domain of rehabilitation and physiotherapy. 

Organized in collaboration with other Flemish universities, this programme is highly specialized. All applicants for the Master of Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy begin by taking the preparatory programme.

Strengths:

  • One of the only programmes in the field that offers an MSc degree where evidence-based practice and strong research are combined. Our research centres top the 17th place on the global QS ranking, 2th place in Europe.
  • Excellent facilities due to close collaboration with University Hospitals Leuven.
  • A flexible programme that allows you to custom design the content of your curriculum depending on the competences you wish to acquire. International options: the faculty is very active on an international level; students have the possibility to undertake (part of) the programme’s internship at an institution abroad should they want to.

Graduates pursue careers as self-employed physiotherapists or join multidisciplinary healthcare teams in hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, health centers and institutions. Many work in the field of special education, motor disabilities, and a number choose to go on to pursue a PhD.
