More about Manchester Metropolitan University
Im trying to decide between MMU and Oxford brookes for physio, MMU sounds like a better uni / program but Oxford sounds like a much nicer place to live for 3yrs... anyone else got thoughts on this?
I have not studied Physiotherapy at MMU but I did study for my undergraduate degree there and now I work in the course enquiries team, therefore I would be happy to give you some further information on the course to help! I really did love my time at Manchester Met and felt it was the right place for me!
Our Manchester Met campus is based right in the city centre, and is only a short walk/bus ride to many local attractions in Manchester. We have elite sports, a legendary music scene and a rich cultural history. From our fashion-forward shopping to our restaurants that serve food from every corner of the globe, you’ll never run out of reasons to love Manchester. The city is a hotbed for media and creativity, and a growing powerhouse driven by science, engineering and big business.
Our Physiotherapy course incorporates the core values of the NHS to help prepare you for the challenges of working in contemporary healthcare. You'll practice skills in our simulation labs, giving you a safe space to develop your expertise in a supportive environment. You’ll spend time on clinical placements every year of your studies to help you apply your learning and skills in a real-world setting. After you graduate as a chartered physiotherapist, you could work in the NHS or the private sector, in the community and care homes, or in schools.
Most of our teaching staff are registered physiotherapists. Their strong relationships with service managers in both NHS and non-NHS settings help to secure practice placements for you. A number of the team are also involved with research projects. Current projects include community health screening in Hulme, Manchester, and specialist dance classes in Sheffield for people with terminal illnesses. Our research directly informs our courses, as you’ll learn from people who are conducting research and also teaching you, so they’re able to share their thoughts and findings with you
For the course you will be based in the award-winning Brooks building, you'll have access to outstanding, specialist facilities. These include physiotherapy practice rooms, 'The Movement Laboratory' housing a high-spec Qualysis system and our physiotherapy clinic, the 'Manchester Movement Unit' which is open to the public and offers the opportunity for staff and students to access a variety of treatments. You can find more information on the movement unit here: https://www.mmu.ac.uk/movement/
94% of BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy students are satisfied with the teaching on their course and 100% of Physiotherapy graduates are employed/in further education six months after graduating with us!
You may find it useful to chat with one of our current Students on our Access Platform. Students can chat with you about student life and what it is like studying courses at Manchester Met https://www.mmu.ac.uk/chatwithus/
It can be really hard to make a decision about where you want to study, I hope this helps a little! Good luck with everything
