  • Overzicht

The European School of Physiotherapy offers you one of the most challenging and high standard study programmes in Europe, leading to a Bachelor of Health (Physiotherapy) degree.

We offer an intense, three-year Bachelor's degree programme in a small-scale environment for students from all over the world.

Studying at the ESP means that you are taught a combination of theoretical subjects and practical skills from the beginning. Physiotherapy concerns a broad field of different activities. Therefore, the ESP interns have to get practical experience in different physiotherapeutic situations. Each year of the programme starts with a period of training and theory and is concluded by practical experience in an internship. The internship is the most challenging period of education. During an internship, everything comes together. Knowledge, attitude and skills should be combined in relation to real patients.

The ESP programme includes three internships of which two are completed outside The Netherlands. The internships are facilitated all over the world.

We have been sharing our expertise with international students for many years. Over the past decades, more than 700 students with approximately more than 40 nationalities from all over the world have graduated from our school.
