Mature student route to Physiotherapy

Hi all,
I am 32 years old mum looking to steer away from business (I have BA Business International Tourism Management and MSc Aviation Management) and become a physiotherapist. I always wanted to become a physio but life got me into different situations. What would be the best way how to get to being a physiotherapist? I live in Wales, but I am Czech and three quarters of my studying journey were done in Czech, so no GSEES no A levels, just an equivalent accepted enough to land me onto UCB and BA International Tourism Management.
As I am a single mum I would prefer studding online (Of course not the physio, just the necessary programme to get me there). Anyone knows about any options?
Thank you all in advance

Have a look at the entry requirements for physio at the unis you would consider applying to. As your degrees are not in healthcare or sciences, you might be required to do a foundation year. However, if you have any Czech science qualifications, they might be sufficient to get you on the course. Call the uni admissions departments to discuss your options.
