Why did you choose the School of Physiotherapy?

After completing my final undergraduate year with Honours, I knew that I enjoyed the research aspect of Physiotherapy. In addition, I could see the importance of research in helping to advance the physiotherapy profession and improve patient care. Therefore, I choose the School of Physiotherapy to start my academic pathway under the guidance of a knowledgeable and supportive academic team here.
