AHS 1040 F Fundamentals of Movement Science and Applied Physiotherapy 1B

At the start of semester 2 of the Intervention Programme students will de-register for Psychology PSY1001W. In addition, a student who was required to enter the Intervention Programme Part 2(having failed one or more courses in the second semester of the first year) will be required to repeat AHS 1034S Introduction to Applied Physiotherapy and may, on completion of the Intervention Programme Part2, be required to repeat other courses he/she has already passed in the second semester of the first year.

In the final year students are expected to design, implement and write up a research project in small groups. These projects are usually part of the research programmes of the academic staff and post-graduate students.
