...I started a new chapter

"When I left high school, university wasn’t the right thing for me. I was fortunate enough to recognise that and not go to university but I think if someone was to ask me now what my advice would be, that would be it really.

"This is a door that never closes. If you’re a very young individual who’s debating whether or not to do this and you genuinely feel you’re not in that position yet but you’re scared about maybe leaving it too long, I would definitely say there’s almost no such thing.

"Ten years from now, I don’t know what I'll be doing, but that doesn’t stop you from doing what you can in the moment and at this moment, this is definitely the right place for me to be and this is the right thing for me to be doing."

... I want to be

"The placements have been amazing. I feel very lucky to have had the chance to explore all the core dimensions of physiotherapy, and you're not limited to placements in the local area. I've had friends doing placements right across Yorkshire. I've even done a placement on the Isle of Man.

"The University took the time to find out what I wanted to do and get from each of my placements, and then ensured I was in the right setting. They will never put you into a placement that you aren't comfortable with."
