Physical Therapist Programme
An educational programme for those who want to become a professional physical therapist based on Genuin Svensk Massage treatment.
You will be studying part-time over 2 years (4 semesters), with 1350 hours of studying plus practical training. A total of 22 seminars is included, each lasting for 4 days. Between the seminars communication takes place on the website based forum.
Examinations are held and diplomas are distributed to successful students at the end of each unit. You will already be able to start practicing as a massage therapist at the end of year one, which facilitates the transition into your new profession. However, a final examination is not held until the end of the entire programme.
Seminars are held at UPH’s own, purpose-built facilities in Älvsered, Halland, Sweden. During seminars accommodation is arranged in the school. Practical tuition and study visits are specified on the curriculum.
