  • Inter-professional wheelchair basketball

    For the past 3 years students have been taking part in a Leaders Award one-day course in wheelchair basketball, organised by British Wheelchair Basketball. The course allows students first-hand experience of the sport and gives them the valuable opportunity to gain transferable skills and knowledge for their future practitioner careers working with people with disabilities and spotting potential athletes.

    I love the idea of facilitating a rehabilitation programme for people, to improve their quality of life.

    The organisation and teaching of the Physiotherapy programme here is amazing. There are a lot of practical sessions in which we practice assessment and treatment skills. I particularly enjoy the simulation sessions as it’s a great opportunity to practice before placement.

    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 have worked at the John Radcliffe (JR) Hospital Neuroscience Department as Therapy Assistant for two years prior to my course at Oxford Brookes.

    The experience I’ve had at the hospital - seeing the patients in an acute setting – has really helped me on the practical side of things.
