Hey,

Thanks I graduated with a 2:1 in Sports Science, I think most places look for a 2:1 minimum in a related degree (biochemistry is ok 👍🏽) for Physio although Sheffield Hallam accept 2:2s. Also you need to have had some sort of experience of Physio or health care prior to applying eg. Work placement, shadowing or even working as an assistant at a clinic; as it’s highly competitive to get onto the course. Do you graduate this year and where you looking to apply to? Let me know if you wanna know anything more specific, I’ll be more than happy to answer

I graduate in 2018, currently in my final year. Where do you think I should look for work placement to help me secure a spot for Physio? I don't have any related experience unfortunately.

I will be applying to SHU for sure but will also consider other unis. Still doing a bit of research on that :P What's the intake quota? And, when do you think I should submit my application?

I’d look for NHS experience ideally eg. at a local Physiotherapy department of a hospital, as it is an NHS run court. Even if it’s a few days here and there it’s goes along way on your application plus it gives you a real insight into the workings of a Physio and a good taste of whether you’d like to work within the area

I’m not sure what the intake is specifically is at SHU but most places I’ve heard about offer approximately 20-30 places per year so I’d guess it’s around that mark. I’d try to get some experience in ideally before submitting because as I say it’s a highly competitive course and some initial applications would be ruled out due to no experience

Hiya,

Biochemistry? That is nice.

I graduated from Biological Sciences.

The requirements vary actually, I think Sheffield Hallam's requirements are a 2:2 or higher.
Most other universities are 2:1 of higher.

I'm actually starting an MSc (Pre-Registration) Physiotherapy course at Southampton in January 2018 (which is in 3 weeks time :O)

Let me know if you have any other questions about the course.

Hey, do you know if SHU quota for the program is already full? I have just gotten some experience so I thought I should submit my application.

Hi guys, I am a prospective physiotherapy student and I have a few questions to ask, they are mainly about employment rather than study, I am wondering if there is a sort of cap/limit in place so that the supply of physiotherapy students matches the demand so that they can mostly get a job,

or is there no such thing and no guarantee at all from the NHS of taking on the graduates, (I mean sort of like the Medicine graduates where the NHS gives most of them a place? (I'm not sure this is the case but I'm asking if it works like that).

Be great if u can answer my questions, or if you feel this needs to be in a different thread please post in this one

Hello Bridget,

I’m just waiting for the response from them, so fingers crossed 🤞🏾

A question is, where do most postgraduate students live? Is there specific accommodation I should be looking at?

Regards,
Ashley.

Hey K_rrar,
ive recently submitted my application to Sheffield Hallam for the pre-reg Physio course. I was just wondering, what sort of work experience/background did you have before applying? And how many students do they usually take on each year?

Thanks!

I had experience working as a physiotherapy assistant, personal trainer, as well as some teaching and coaching experience. I think the primary thing they're looking for is experience in care settings, the more relevant to physio the better. Someone without any experience in care would probably struggle getting thrown into a placement where you're in a hospital working with patients who have advanced lung disease for example.

They take on about 40 students per year I believe. I doubt that number will increase because there just aren't enough placements available, and a few of us have already gotten stuck on poor placements where we don't learn very much. If you combine that with the extremely low amount of contact hours at SHU it wouldn't make for a good learning experience, so they might even reduce it slightly - but the number in my cohort is about 40.

Hope that helps!

How competitive would you say it is to be able to secure a spot for MSc Physio course at SHU? Do you know how many international students they took in your cohort?

It's sad to hear that some students found poor placements. Where do students generally do their placements? I'd be happy if you could answer them
