They say information is power, and that is certainly true where training and qualifications are concerned.
If you are interested in training as a physiotherapist, it's important to know all the routes open to you. The standard route is to study for a degree that is approved by the Health Professions Council (HPC). This makes you eligible for state registration and membership of the field's governing body, the (CSP).
This is a three or four year commitment, so getting information on which universities offer this is vital.
However, many people are not aware that you can also qualify as a physiotherapist through a two-year Cadet Scheme - this would involve clinical placements while working towards a qualification such as an NVQ Level 3 in Health.
Alternatively, if you already have a degree may be able to qualify by taking a fast-track postgraduate course. You would need a first class or upper second class honours degree in a relevant subject (for example biological science, psychology or sports science).
