The Department of Health and Rehabilitation consists of four units - physiotherapy, occupational therapy, audiology and speech and language pathology. We have different areas of expertise within movement, activity, hearing and communication.


We are responsible for the degree programmes for future physiotherapists, occupational therapists, audiologists and speech and language pathologists, as well as second-cycle courses and postgraduate studies.
