Content is delivered in a variety of ways and is varied to suit different types of learning styles. The best part of this degree is the hands on practical placements in 3rd and 4th Year as these are great learning experiences and teach you way more than uni classes could ever. The only negative I will say is the high turnover of lecturing staff, as it can be disruptive to students.

James Cook offered a great well rounded course, which provided me with the basic skills and knowledge to treat clients. The course also gave me the confidence in my ability to educate clients on complex conditions.
