    Hi guys,
    I’m looking into applying to Leeds for the pre reg Physiotherapy course and I’ve a few queries!

    For anyone that has done the course how many contact hours are there each week? I understand it’s an accelerated course and there’s a lot of self directed study but I’d like an idea of what I’m getting myself into 🙈

    Also what are the living costs in Leeds? I’m an Irish student so I’d be moving over and I’d like an idea of how much saving I’ve to do before heading over 😁 is it possible to hold down a weekend job during the course?

    Thanks for any help 😁😁

    Masters courses are quite intensive and as it's a healthcare course there may also be work experience. I would treat it as a full time job and prepare to work accordingly. You can try getting a weekend job but ask your tutors first and work out what sorts of hours you will be doing. You don't want to compromise your study to be able to work.

    I also forgot to say that the uni will have estimated costs on their website which may be of use
