What’s Physiotherapy? What’s Occupational Therapy?
What are their differences? How do Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist work together when they work with patients? In addition to medical institutions, football clubs, performing arts groups and schools in the UK hire their own physiotherapists which gives graduates diverse job opportunities. How will working outside medical institutions impact your career developments?
What are the differences between Diagnostic Radiography and Therapeutic Radiography? Is there differences in registration requirements for professional status too? We’ve all heard of X-Ray and CT Scans, but there are lots of other services provided by the Radiology department in hospitals. Which of these are performed by a Radiographer?
Application & Interview Tips
What attributes does the University look for in a student? Where should applicants pay extra attention when they prepare for their applications and interviews? How kind of volunteering and job shadowing experience can help enrich your Personal Statement and help you stand out in your interview?
Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Radiography all require students to complete clinical placements as part of their education. How does the arrangement actually work? In which semester do these placements usually happen? Do students still need to attend classes when they’re doing their placement? How would the transport and accommodaiton be arranged during placement?
