    Could anyone explain the difference between physiology and physiotherapy. Not many universities offer physiotherapy and I am a bit confused with the differences between the two. I have checked and found out that you get placement in the first year for physiotherapy, is this the only difference? Also, how much work experience did you guys get for physiotherapy? Thanks

    Hey guys,

    In my last year doing a Sport Rehabilitation degree and I applied for physio just before the deadline on the 15th January. Just wondered if anybody was in a similar situation, and what their experiences have been so far in terms of interviews and offers for the postgraduate student undertaking an undergraduate course.
    Also, for anyone else who applied late, have they heard anything back yet in terms of interviews?

    Thanks

    Hey,

    You seem to be way off in your ideas about the two courses, as they are both completely different. Physiology is a branch of biological science which looks in depth at the internal processes of a living organism (respiration processes etc).
    Physiotherapy on the other hand is essentially the study of physical medicine and rehabilitation covering areas such as msk, cardiorespiratory and neurology.
    The only vague similarity is that Physiology or 'pathophysiology' is a taught module in the physiotherapy degree.

    Hope this helps clear things up.

    I was just wondering if anyone has ever received an unconditional offer for Physio without having already achieved their A-Levels?

    Yeah, I was guessing they didn't! I only thought I'd ask because I've had friends who have received unconditional offers for Veterinary Medicine and Dentistry without having achieved grades, and I know that they're also super competitive courses

    Hey, ive also done a sports rehab degree. Ive taken a year out to work within the NHS and now ive applied for the BSc Physiotherapy. I dont think they will single you out because you have previously done a sports degree but you will have to have done placements or work experience where it isnt just in a sports setting otherwise they wont consider your application and will think youre only interested in the sports side of the degree rather than the whole Physiotherapy side as theres so much more than sports involved. I have a friend who works with a good Rugby league team however as her previous experiences have always been sports shes been rejected on 3 occasions on the MSc and the BSc.

    two rejections from Keele and Liverpool, waiting for offers from Birmingham, Southampton and Nottingham. I'm so scared, I got declined based on my grades but they exceed the boundaries. I'm guessing my personal statement is boring. :/

    Obviously not allowed to say exactly what questions, but just know the NHS values/physiotherapy skills and be able to back what you say up with work experience/extra curricular activities. Good luck

    Has anyone had an interview at Salford OR does anyone know what level the Maths test is please? I read on a Midwifery forum that it's A* standard GCSE?! My GCSEs were about 10 years ago and I have a day to prepare. Not really worth driving 4 hours to fail a Maths test and go home.

    I've not had an interview nor do I know anything about the uni maths exam but common sense tells me it wont be A* GCSE standard. More like C standard
