How this thread hasn’t already been started is beyond me! This is for anyone who is applying to the MSc Physiotherapy (pre-reg) course for September/October 2010 or January/Feb 2011 entry.

How is the application process going for everyone? What degree you did, where you worked, where you’re applying to, offers, rejections etc this is the place to share and ask any questions to your fellow applicants.

Hey,

I know this thread hasn't really been used for a while but you're right, there doesn't seem to be alot about for us MSc Physio applicants. How've the applications/ responses gone? I've some how managed to get 3 offers, Southampton, Leeds met and Northumbria, don't have a clue which to go for though! I'm also abit confused about the whole accomodation situation! x

Can you please all quote me if you'd like a reply please or I don't tend to see it!!
lazylizzo- my interview was mainly more of a chat- why physio, why essex, what qualities did I think would make me a good physio, bad qualities and how to overcome them, a talk through some of the stuff in my PS. Definitely read through the CSP website, have a very good idea of the variety of things that physio's do. Also a good idea to be aware of healthcare initiatives e.g. Move for Life, and maybe a couple of policies, although most of them have just been scrapped by the new government. Where is your interview?
I had a 2.2 and managed to get on a course, so don't worry guys, it can be done!

Hey people, I had an interview at MMU for the msc physio pre-reg in june. Still not heard back, I've sent them many e-mails to which non have been responded to. My friend who had the interview on the same day got accepted a week later. Should I just give up and accept that it is just their cruel way of being rejected?

Hey,
I am due to start Essex uni MSc course in about 2 weeks... cant wait to get going! I got an offer from southampton, but thought they were useless and so unorganised. I was on the reserve list at birmingham, which was a shame as loved that uni! UEA offered me a place, but chose essex as earlier start date and course structure sounded much better! Good luck everyone!

Good luck with your course- Essex is a really nice department and the lecturers are awesome. I've really enjoyed my time there so far! If you have any questions just shout, and I might see you around soon!

Hi guys,

i am also considering applying for MSc Physiotherapy (pre registration)

I see some of you go to have secured a place there and some of you already go there.

I have to be honest , I have been on the website and even though i am sure that the facilities are great (or so i keep hearing) i am not sure about the student community ( or the lack of it to be precise)?? :confused:

I really like the course but i have to also keep in mind that i will be there for 2 years of my life, so i was hoping you guys could shed some light on this for me?

Many thanks!:yes:

Are you talking about Essex in particular or any other university?
In regards to Essex, it can be a little difficult as a mature student to mix with all the 18 year old freshers- for a start the course is pretty intensive, so after 9-5 lectures you really do have to go home and study! But there are tons of soctieties to join and everyone is really welcoming. And wherever you have thousands of students put together, there is going to be a fun student community feeling.
In regards to the course, as there are only 30 of us in a cohort we all are very close- we go out all together as a class at least once a term (would be more than this, but a lot of people live quite far away). The people who live in Colchester go out together almost every weekend.

Hi DJK,

Yes I was referring to The University of Essex. Sorry know I should have proof read my message before submitting it
The course seems great, Essex sounds nice enough as well.
You said that that the course is quite intensive. Do any of you have a part time job alongside their course? Obviously I understand that spare time may be rare with lectures ,study and clinical work but I was hoping I could still keep my weekend job.. What do you think?

Thanks again

Some people on my course have a job, it's split about half and half. Most of those that work are already qualified in sports therapy and do some work for local football teams or local disabled children, so it's a bit of a chance to practice physio skills. Some have temp jobs, or in local bars.
It is possible to have a part time job, but it really depends how much time you need to study. If you know anatomy and physiology really well then you'll be fine, if you need to spend 2+ hours a night learning it like I did then you may have to think again!
You are eligble for a career and development loan, a lot of people on my course have them, so check them out.
Hope that helps.
