What students say

Thank you so much for taking the time to give me this experience. It has helped me be certain that a job in physiotherapy is a good fit for me as a future. I am now also considering other jobs like occupational therapy and also a dietician. I feel the word of allied health has opened up to me and I have so many more pathways to explore.

Thank you for creating this programme. The range of information was incredibly useful and helped, not only me but so many different people decide or get an idea of what type of career path to follow. The activities were a great way to immerse ourselves into the course and get a rough idea of what type of tasks AHPs have to do.

I appreciate the time you have spent taking part in creating this virtual work experience course. Honestly, this has helped me so much because during the pandemic I have not been able to find any placements in a GP, hospital or pharmacy to gain some experience, and I am sure this course will aid me in reaching my aspiration.
