The Physiotherapy course is great, theoretical classes alternate with practical sessions which allow for an optimal learning experience. The first year can be challenging as it requires a lot of independent learning and the content can be complex. However it's all worth it! You'll be divided in classes of roughly 20 students, which provides a great opportunity for learning, whether through interacting with the lecturers or through peer-learning. The biggest focus will be on learning all the normal anatomy of the human body and how to test various things such as range of movement, strength or stretches. As such, much of your time will be spent in practical rooms, where you have to be ready to undress (appropriately) if you act as a model. The rest of the time, you will go into more detailed subjects, like physiology, where you will learn the fundamentals of cellular biology and how the different systems in the body function. At the end of the first year, the human body will have a lot less secrets for you. And you'll catch yourself analyzing how people walk in the street! In the first year, you will have both practical exams as well as written essays.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
