I’m 37 and my previous career was in Education (I have a BA hons in social science, PGCE in primary education and 2 MA diplomas in maths and specific learning difficulties).

I made a career move and now I am a gym owner, strength coach and pelvic health specialist. I want to gain a qualification in Physiotherapy in line with the rehabilitation work I already do (to expand my business and ability to work with others in an integrated practice manner). I’ve been declined a place on an MSc in Sports Medicine due to my previous education not being relevant to this course.

If I applied for an undergraduate degree in Physiotherapy would I be able to get a further student loan to support me as I need to continue to work in some capacity alongside studying.

Its a good move, I have a BSC in exercise and sports science, I look forward to doing my masters in sports medicine later in life......Go and do your best, you on the right path.

Hello mate, What qualification did you get to say you’re a ‘pelvic health specialist?’ Usually you’d need qualification as a physio to then branch out into a specific area such as pelvic health.

I‘m a sports therapist (qualified 2018) returning to do undergrad Physiotherapy in Sept. You shouldn’t have any issues with student loan & maintenance grant. Plus, NHS training grant (£5k per year over 3 years).

As physio is an Allied Health Professional, all previous loans/grants are disregarded. You’ll be able to access student loan to pay for physio degree, maintenance loan plus you get a £5k NHS training grant per year for 3 years. You don’t have to pay this back.

I’m and Adore Your Floor Coach and specialise in integrated pelvic health rehab alongside strength training (some of my athletes are at the Arnold’s this year); so specialist in this regard to things rather than the internal Physiotherapy side of things although I work alongside physios with their clients too.

Thanks for that info; worried I may have missed the cut off for undergrad applications after John Moore only just replied saying they couldn’t consider me on the MSc due to my undergrad not being in a relevant subject.
