Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​​Division of Physiotherapy


Our vision at Stellenbosch University is to constantly contribute to meaningful health care. As recently graduated Stellenbosch Physiotherapist you will have the basic knowledge and skills to function in the South African health context as a reflective practitioner within the philosophy and values intrinsic to the Physiotherapy profession.

Physiotherapists work in the health spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitation. As physiotherapists we provide services that develop, maintain and restore people's maximum movement and functional ability thereby maximizing their quality of life. We can help people at any stage of life, when movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, disease, disorders, conditions or environmental factors.

​​We have a dynamic division which provides undergraduate and post graduate students with opportunities to develop as thought leaders in the development of the science of physiotherapy. You will qualify with a Bachelor of Science degree after four years. After completing your community service year you can apply to our postgraduate programmes.
