Faculty of Graduate Studies
Room 314, Henry Hicks Academic Administration Building, 6299 South Street

||Faculty of Health Professions
|Field of Study:
||Physiotherapists understand how the body moves, what keeps it from moving well and how to restore mobility. Working as part of a health-care team or independently, physiotherapists strive to improve the health and mobility of their patients. They can also advise on ways to prevent health problems from occurring before they arise.
The program prepares students with the education and clinical experience necessary to take the Physiotherapy Competency Examination and to subsequently apply for a licence to practice physiotherapy.

|Cost per year:
This cost estimate is for Year 1 of the program, and includes incidental fees.
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (Internet Based) [min. 92] or Michigan English Language Assessment Battery [min. 85] or CanTEST [min. 4.5] or Test of English as a Foreign Language (Paper Based) [min. 580] or International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration) [min. 7]
English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written.
|Additional Admission Requirements:
Two academic, confidential reference letters are required for admission to the entry-to-profession program. Applicants are also required to have at least forty hours of volunteer experience (not necessarily in the area of physiotherapy) in the last 2 years. Please visit the website for complete details.
