The Australian Physiotherapy Council provides accreditation to Australian higher education entry-level physiotherapy programs.
The Council has delegated authority from the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (Ahpra) as the only accreditation authority for physiotherapy practitioner programs in Australia.
Throughout the accreditation cycles, the Council evaluates the physiotherapy program and the education provider against the Accreditation Standard. Once an entry-level program has been accredited by the Council, the Physiotherapy Board of Australia (registration body of physiotherapists) will determine whether that program will be included on their ‘approved program’ list.
See here for more detail on the role of the Council and the Physiotherapy Board in accreditation and approval of programs.
The Council encourages Education Providers to contact our Accreditation Team so we can guide you through the accreditation process and timeline. Please call 1300 528 003 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
