Btw min for Western countries like Australia and US to practise as clinician is Masters for OT PT so if you are not planning to study until that level don't take up the Bachelor course.
What do you mean clinician? To be a physiotherapist in Australia, you'll need a Bachelor's degree in physiotherapy. However, to progress your career into Clinical Specialist/ Researcher/ Education/ Management, you'll definitely need to upgrade yourself. It is the same as Singapore as NYP no longer conducts diploma programs in PT/ OT/ RG/ RT

This applies to all healthcare occupations. To be an APN, a nurse will have to have Masters in Nursing.

Yes true. PT is australia is very recognised and on par with medicine.
Generally, everyone in the healthcare team are recognised as they have their role to play in the healthcare system. In Australia, nurses and doctors have the same basic pay.
