    Bachelors Degree in the USA

    We recommend the Physio Shop - www.physioshop.co.uk
    Hi, I am about to complete my diploma in Physiotherapy anytime soon and wish to proceed to a Bachelors Degree soon after, particularly in the USA. What i want to know is if there is any colleges or university that would accept students after their diploma in another country. Also what would be the requirements. It'll be great if there's someone who could give a hand here.

    Im studying at the Masterskill University College fo Health Sciences, Malaysia.

    Thank you.

    Re: Bachelors Degree in the USA

    there are no Bachelors degrees courses in physical therapy now. The standard is now a Doctorate in PT. there are a few Masters PT courses but the are being phased out.

    Re: Bachelors Degree in the USA

    In that case having a diploma, would I qualify or be eligible with certain requirements for any of these?

    Re: Bachelors Degree in the USA

    Have a look at the APTA site. In the education section you will fine lists of accredited PT programmes. From those you can see the prerequistes for their courses. A doctorate would require at the very minimum a four year undergraduate degree
