I don't apply for university until the end of this year but within the last few months (post work experience) I have changed my ideal career path. Beforehand I was content with becoming a PE teacher but now I want to go into physiotherapy. I went to college and studied "sports - development, coaching and fitness" a level 3 extended diploma and I finished my first year with an almost perfect D* and plan to attain nothing less than D*D*D. However, will my course be relevant enough to go to uni and study physiotherapy?
I looked on various uni sites and saw they required relevant science based BTECS/a levels (including sports science and physical education) but mine isn't called either of those. I do a few sciencey modules like: anatomy & physiology, physiology of fitness, sports nutrition and will also cover sports injuries and sports massage but is this enough?
TL;DR: will universities look at my more relevant units studies as a pose to judging my subject studied by its name?
