    Hi, there is a lot of anatomy that needs to be learnt for a physio degree. Can your friend recommend any anatomy books to read prior to starting in September? Also does he/she recommend what anatomy to revise - again prior to starting - as there are a few months to get a head start.

    I will be a mature student so was wondering the a ratio of mature students to younger students on the physio course? And on a more general note how are the mature students finding it going from a wage to being a poor student again!

    Thank you

    David

    A typical day for me would involve a 1-2 hour marketing lecture or tutorial, which is a great way catch up with course mates and tutors on current projects. Because the campus is so close to the city centre I would normally head into town with my course mates before heading down to the Hoe and chill out on the grass, maybe even have a BBQ.

    Then later in the evening I generally socialise with flatmates and go into town. If deadlines are close we often have a chilled evening in the flat watching movies.

    Hi David!
    Just spoken to my flatmate and she recommended waiting until summer as you will be able to log into the Plymouth uni portal and view recommended books and download free e-books. You can also find out what modules you will cover on the website: https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/courses/u...-physiotherapy

    I have also found some Alumini case studies on the website which you might find helpful:

    https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/alumni-fr...ork/tom-rogers

    https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/schools/s...iah-rosenstein

    As the course is open for all you can expect a variety of ages to attend these courses. My flatmate has a ratio of 50:50 but this could vary for the upcoming year.

    Whilst studying the course you could also become a student ambassador as this will help build your cv and is a great way to still earn. Hope this is helpful.

    A typical day for us at Plymouth is going into uni for one lecture or seminar a day, fitting in a few hours of study, and spending time with flatmates in the evening, maybe watching Netflix or heading out into town and socialising. If you have any questions about any aspect of life in Plymouth, feel free to ask us #ChatWithPlym
