Practical learning

During the Master, you will continue, in an intensive way, the training begun in the third year of the first cycle. You will do four months of placement in the university clinics and approved UCL and KUL centres, under the direction of teachers in physiotherapy and rehabilitation and under the supervision of placement directors. You will be able to match your choice of placement to your interests and preferences: hospital departments, outpatient treatment or private practice.


You will be able to develop your knowledge in one of the following areas : technological aids for handicapped people, prevention of pathologies linked with working conditions and adapted physical activities used as additional therapy.

The dissertation that you will do at the end of the course will also enable you to specialize in an advanced area of physiotherapy or rehabilitation. The dissertation may be an account of a particular issue, through bibliographic research, or be centred on experimental research in the laboratory. You will benefit from close collaboration and a privileged learning relationship with your supervisor.
