How much work experience do I need for physiotherapy? Francesca, London


Our Answer:

UEA has a great reputation for the teaching on our BSc Physiotherapy course and is highly rated.

We don’t specify the amount of work experience you should have to be successful as it’s more about what you learn from your work experience than the amount of time you work/shadow. Someone can get months of experience and gain very little from it, while someone else may do a week’s work experience and gain an enormous amount.

It’s more about what you learn and that it helps to solidify your desire to study the Physiotherapy programme, than the amount of time you’re in a health care environment.
