    Hey,
    I've just accepted a place at MMU too. I was also wondering what people were going to do about accommodation, not sure whether to get a flat or see if people wanted to get together to get a house. What are you thinking of doing?

    Hi Guys,

    I'd really appreciate your help. I'm currently in third year studying sport science and I am looking to progress my study onto the MSc in Physiotherapy but need some advice.

    1. For acceptance onto the course is a 1st absolutely essential or if I get a 2:1 could I still be accepted.
    2. How much experience will I need. I already have a weeks experience in a hospital setting will I need more and possibly in a private clinic?
    3. If I don't base my dissertation on something regarded as being in the 'physiotherapy area' will it hurt my chances of getting in?

    Thanks for your help it will be really appreciated even if you just give me what you have done to get acceptance onto the course x

    Good luck!!
    Hi Janne,
    I hope you are doing well!
    I was accepted into MMU as well. There are a few things I need to consider before making my final decision as the course structues in the UK are different from SA.
    Do you maybe know how many people are in the class and if the course at MMU has a good reputation?
    Thanks so much!!

    Hello! Well the thing with the course in the uk is that they are all pretty much the same.... they have to follow the CSP and meet certain requirements so thats why no matter which uni u do it at it will be the same course content. the only thing that might differ is the teaching. I am going to MMU because i liked the staff that interviewed me and i liked that its alot of PBL (problem based learning - working in groups etc) but at the end of the day its up to u and where you felt most comfortable? have you gotten in anywhere else? what are your options? thats also something to think about..... hope thats helpful!

    Hi guys, I am going back to education as a mature student and have an offer to do sports rehab. I am going about getting a dual degree, im going down the route of doing sports rehab to achieve a 2:1 honors to enter pre reg physiotherapy.

    My question is, to do pre reg physio will the unis only require the 2:1 as entry requirements or will they want English and maths a levels/ Irish leaving cert also?

    Hi!

    I sent my applications between January and March. I had a total of 4 days experience in the NHS shadowing physio's and worked in a disability setting for almost 3 years... So i felt that probably swung it my way for interview offers.

    I've got 2 interviews coming up and haven't heard from the other few I've applied to.

    Where have you applied, do you have any interviews coming up?

    I'm extremely nervous too... I was hoping somebody could calm me down with some good advice!!!!

    Hi mate...

    Remember, you have to convince the physio guys that you are interested in healthcare, not sport. If the NHS are funding your study they want to make sure you will contribute to healthcare and thats the view taken in the interview by the sounds of things.

    There are some requirements to get a 2:1 or above for most uni's but you would have to explain your case to the universities individually. If you can do that whilst building a rapport with the admissions tutor then you've got one foot in the door.

    They prefer A-levels in science - biology in particular... and GCSE english and maths... but again, if you can explain your case to them they can explain what you will need and work around it for you to apply!

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the advice, Im half thinking of taking a year out now and going down the physio first route, i have to do english and maths leaving cert though at grade c to get into physio, by doing it this way i wont have to pay the large tuition fees i would for sports rehab but it means turning down sports rehab offer and taking a risk on getting into physio next year, plus ill be 29 by the time i start physio then, such a dilemma!!!!

    I completely understand what you're going through.

    They might suggest you take the BSc in Physiotherapy - in which case you might want to consider part time study. They like mature students on most BSc courses... plus if you go part time you can still earn - otherwise you will be studying for 3 more years full time.

    In your position I would prepare applications for both BSc and MSc courses, and think about who will supply your references. Try and speak directly to admissions teams/tutors regularly and maybe try and arrange time to visit the departments of the universities you are thinking of going to.

    With a year out, you should have time to do this stuff and show your commitment through experience to the profession.

    Hope this helps!
