If you are enrolled in an approved program of study you do not need to apply for registration. Education providers will pass on your details to the Physiotherapy Board for registration. No fees are required.
The Physiotherapy Board will register you for the duration of study or clinical training, or until you are no longer enrolled.
Preparing for registration as a physiotherapist
The Physiotherapy Board of Australia has prepared this presentation for use by education providers, students and interested others to assist in understanding what it means to be a registered physiotherapist in Australia. The presentation is most relevant to physiotherapy students who are nearing the completion of their approved programs of study in Australia and will soon be seeking general registration as a physiotherapist.
