    Hi everyone
    (bit of background before the questions)
    I'm 21 and currently undertaking a foundation degree in Sports Therapy. I will be finishing my 2nd (and final) year in 2014.
    I have a DMM in health and social care Btec national diploma and 8 GCSEs A-C including English, maths and science.
    I am looking to start a physiotherapy undergrad degree in 2014 after my fdsc.
    i have been working as a physiotherapy assistant for the past 4 years at various hospitals.


    My first question is am I classed as a mature student?


    Second question is will my grades and experience give me a good chance of getting onto he course?


    Thanks for reading

    Many of these questions aren't my area, but I just wanted to check you've looked into the financial situation.

    yes you are a mature student... anyone over 21 is

    you stand a good chance, experiance is highly important to mature students it often more important than grades

    good luck

    i dont believe finance is an issue with the physiotherapy degree as its NHS funded so previous study doesn't count

    Yes, I didn't look at the subject. You know, I've missed so many things since Thursday that I think it may be time to give up...

    No definitley not, you still give out good advice. I particularly liked what you said about clearing in another post.

    Thank you. I just seem to have dropped the ball a few times this year and I'm finding that my arthritic old fingers can't type fast enough to get in while I still have something relevant to say! All I'm left with is 'I agree with the post above'!
