Undergraduate physiotherapy education programmes in the Irish Universities (R.C.S.I., T.C.D., U.C.D., U.L.) are accredited by the ISCP. Graduates are eligible to become members of the ISCP and can work in the Irish public health system without individual qualification validation.
The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP) is no longer the designated authority acting with the approval of the Minister for Health for the recognition of physiotherapy qualifications in the Republic of Ireland (S.I.139/2008). Applications for Qualification Recognition from 30th September 2016 should now be made to CORU (www.coru.ie
). The Qualification Recognition process is guided by EU Directive 2013/55/EC amending the 2005/36/EC.
