Hi all

I am looking for honest opinions from anyone who has studied Physiotherapy in their 40s. I am 45 and I received offers from two universities to study physio. I have since been worrying that I am too old to do this, and as I already have a degree is it a bit silly to think I can reinvent myself at this age? I put myself through a difficult and demanding online Access course to prepare for this, and just managed to finish it in time. It was a very intense period getting this done. I am not currently working, so I am debating about still looking for a place (I know there are some in Clearing) or going back to work in teaching...which I left a couple of years ago. Any honest thoughts appreciated! Thanks!

Of course you're not too old. People retire around 68! There were a couple of people in their 40s and 50s on the course when I trained as a physio. It will be difficult but worth it.

Thank you I find this very reassuring! I have decided to accept a place!

I would expect some of the more elderly clients might prefer a older physio.
