PRESENTATION

The CEU San Pablo University of Madrid started to offer university studies in Physiotherapy in 1998. As a result of our experience and adapting the studies to the European Higher Education Area, we have offered the Degree in Physiotherapy since 2010, a degree that lasts four years and is worth 240 ECTS credits. Work experience carried out in different hospitals and specialised clinics is undertaken throughout the four years of studies, with the aim to develop clinical skills and the integration of the student in the working world. In order to carry out their studies, each student is designated with a tutor who will advise them and guide them personally throughout the course of their academic progress.
