    I'm talking relative to other degrees such as business and management.
    I've read that year 2 is particularly difficult, on placement with self study apparently on average you'll be doing 16-18 hour days.
    Just looking for opinions of anyone on the course and where you're studying as its something i'm interested in, but at 25 years old i'm not sure about taking the plunge of dedicating so much time for a degree i may find too challenging.

    Heya! I'm a second (almost third) year physio student at Nottingham

    It depends a lot on which university you go to! I've found our first year hardest, time wise. The other years have their challenges too!

    In short, a physio degree is not for the faint-hearted. It's tough work, but it's also super rewarding. You have to love what you're doing, and then it seems less like work!

    My advice? Go to a few open days, talk to students and lecturers to get a better feel for the courses

    I personally, wouldn't have chosen any other course or career!


    All degrees are hard mate.
