With a master’s degree in Physiotherapy at Bern University of Applied Sciences, you will advance your scientific and clinical skills and make significant contributions to developments in the field.


Our master’s degree programme in Physiotherapy at Bern University of Applied Sciences opens doors to new areas of physiotherapy, broadening your perspectives in the field and enables you to develop and implement new, evidence-based concepts in physiotherapy or to carry out research.

In our MSc programme in physiotherapy, you will increase your knowledge of evidence-based physiotherapy and learn how to apply various research methods. Your clinical expertise will grow in the three focus areas of musculoskeletal studies, neurology and sport. In the professional development focus area, you will qualify for work in research and education. You will also be prepared to assume a wider range of new responsibilities in a clinical setting that reflect the challenges in healthcare today. 

Through internships with institutional partners or on research teams, you will begin growing your network before you complete your studies. You will learn new perspectives and approaches from renowned instructors from Switzerland and abroad.

Learning outcomes

You may teach in a bachelor’s degree or continuing education programme, or you may choose the research route and work in planning, securing acquisitions, implementing or publishing research projects.
