    Yeah, I've been thinking of getting a notebook especially since I'm commuting and don't want to carry loads of heavy stuff. I know on my last degree not many people typed in lectures but I think more people probably do now with tablets and notebooks etc - laptops were too heavy and loud with keyboard tapping to be bothered last time. But I think I'd be more organised than having loads of messy notes on paper for different modules.

    As for pre reading - the course I'm doing at the moment is second year uni biology so I've got enough to be getting on with but I'll probably take a month's break after my exam in June and then go over bones/muscles/anatomy in August. Definitely getting my own skeleton.

    Yea nobody on my last degree used laptops in lectures. Just thinking with commuting especially that I may be spending time between lectures/pracs in the library and wouldn't want to always be relying on there being a computer available. I think I'd like to still have a hard copy of notes but a digital copy would be good too just incase the worst ever did happen and they were lost or damaged/destroyed.

    Did you have plenty of work experience and did you go to interview?

    For anyone who applied for Birmingham, did you get an email saying - your application has been reviewed by the admissions team and has now been referred to the admissions tutor for further consideration

    Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

    Hi, I was wanting to do some reading on physio before the course starts as I have a job which gives me A LOT of free time but don't know which books would be useful or which you get on the course, does anyone know which books I should buy and read?
    Last year I picked up the Physiotherapists Pocketbook from Amazon. It's great and cheap! Can fit in your bag and is crammed with information that will come in handy as a student and eventually as a practitioner; the only reason I heard about it was because one of my placement supervisors actually carried one around in her pocket.

    Apart from that, learn your anatomy. Doesn't necessarily need to be from a book, you could try the get body smart website. The site covers every system, and also has animations that allow you to see exactly what action a muscle performs.

    Hi, I have an interview at Worcester on monday. As it's not NHS funded I was wondering how anyone would suggest preparing for it? As I guess the interview is going to not be NHS values focussed, but I dont know really!

    I got rejected without interview or reason and I've already achieved AAA in 2014. They might of rejected us for loads of reasons, didn't like the personal statement, didn't feel we had enough work experience, they could of even liked us but they have such a high volume of applications it could just be a 1% difference between me and someone else.

    I think if you email the university they can give you your reason for rejection.
    I also got rejected from Cardiff but Im not overly bothered so wont email them.

    These are just a few things you could mention in an interview that I have pretty much just copy and pasted from the internet.

    The CSP is a member-led organisation, that as a professional body, provides a range of professional services, promotes learning and good practice, and supports its members to achieve continuous professional development. The CSP is also responsible for campaigning on behalf of all physiotherapy staff and the physiotherapy profession.

    The society supports research into physiotherapy through the CSP Charitable Trust which funds the Physiotherapy Research Foundation. It works to build knowledge in the professions by funding research to inform clinical practice and clinical effectiveness and build research capacity in the profession by providing new researchers with opportunities to gain funding to enhance their research skills and experience.

    It is also a trade union body, but I'm not sure you would need to go in to detail about that during an interview.

    Any additional info, just check out their website.
