You would need to take a science-based access course to gain entry to a pysiotherapy course.

It depends what your GCSE's are in. English and Maths (at C or above) is a basic requirement. I assume Biology would be too for a science-based degree. If you don't have them you can take them as part of the Access course.

If you've been out of education for a few years I recommend taking an Access course. It eases you in to studying, writing assignments, meeting deadlines, etc and builds up your confidence to prepare you for the workload once you get to university. There is a lot I've learned over the last year, it's amazing how many little things you need to know to study a degree-level qualification. Even A' levels don't properly prepare you with skills such as referencing.

An access course is taken generally at local/community colleges. They are level three, so the same level as A-Level. If you pass an interview and a basic English/maths test you would be able to do it in one year although depending on the college if they feel you are not up to scratch, this may be two years. They are not priced the same way as degrees and can range from £400 to £1000

Physiotherapy is very competitive, you would need to show that you have work/voluntary experience in the field to be considered.
