“Brookes was the place for me; I can’t imagine myself anywhere else.”

The atmosphere at Brookes is friendly and welcoming. The small cohort size means that everyone on the course knows each other well and we all work together with the amazing lecturing team, who really go out of their way to help in any way that they can.

I like that all of our theory is taught before we go on placement, so you go out completely prepared to start actually being a physiotherapist! The placements are based at such incredible hospitals and community settings, and with the link lecturer you still feel in touch with and supported by Brookes.

As the Physiotherapy Society President, I get the chance to talk to lots of Physiotherapy students as well as people from the SU and other organisations; it’s a very rewarding role.

After completing the course I plan to stay in Oxford and work in the NHS. Perhaps in the future I’ll return to Oxford Brookes for their MSc or PhD programmes.
