Thomas, MSc Physiotherapy student

"I enjoyed attending interesting lectures learning from vastly experienced practitioners that made the learning process fun and engaging, whilst creating life long friendships in the process. The MSc Physiotherapy (pre-reg) programme was extremely challenging at times, but also incredibly rewarding and by completing this course I have developed not only as a medical practitioner, but also as a human being."
