Welcome to ESP!

The European School of Physiotherapy (ESP) offers an intense and high-quality physiotherapy programme for excellent students from all over the world! ESP is an honours programme of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS or HvA) and is recognised by The Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO) as "Small and Intensive Education".ESP-globe-sticker-design-1024

Our mission is to educate world-class physiotherapists and we do so by offering an intense programme, in an international classroom, with emphasis on personal contact.
The ESP serves as an "extended family" that includes (prospective) students, alumni, faculty and staff.
