Overall a good course which gave us the foundations for the various fields of physiotherapy. There may have been too much emphasis on hospital-based physiotherapy, and too little on sports/private practice (for those interested in going down this path and not hospital/acute based). This of course was between 2011-2015, so the program and order may have changed since then.

This course has provided me with the necessary exposure and knowledge to enter the work force after university. The placements we had were definitely a great learning experience as we got to work in the real world and apply everything that we have learnt with actual patients. Overall was a good course and would recommend!

Great staff. Course is somewhat outdated compared to other universities. Poor preparation for what physiotherapists do in the real world (however this has improved in recent years).
