Shortlisting for interviews will take place in early February. Interviews for selected Home/EU applicants will be on 8 and 15 March 2017. Interviews for selected Overseas applicants will take place in April/May. Applicants are expected to be able to attend. Incomplete written applications will not be considered. Selection for interview will be based on academic criteria and evidence in the personal statement of understanding of the role and scope of physiotherapy in current healthcare and any relevant work experience or shadowing (see entry requirements).
Please give your A-level (or equivalent qualification) results (school/college; date; subject; grade).
Your personal statement is one of the many factors in the overall assessment of your application. We are looking particularly for evidence of appropriate commitment to, and realistic appreciation of, the academic physical and emotional demands of an accelerated masters degree programme and career in physiotherapy. We would normally expect that you will have undertaken some work experience in a caring environment and/or observation in clinical setting. If this is not possible, we look for evidence that you have worked in a setting where you can interact with the general public.
Communication skills and the ability to work successfully in a team are of great importance. Your interests, achievements and contribution to your community are taken into account in addition to academic ability. We aim to ensure that all of our students can display those professional qualities, skills and attitudes that help to make competent and caring physiotherapists. If you have undertaken work in a healthcare setting, we would expect an additional professional reference relating to this.
NOTE: When submitting an application on the King's Apply portal, the personal statement must be input directly into the personal statement box (no more than 4,000 characters). Do not attach a separate personal statement document – attached documents will not be considered.
