    NHS Physiotherapy Jobs

    Taping
    Hi,

    I am coming to the end of my third year as a physiotherapy student. After my second year i was on for a 2:1. I am waiting for my semester exam results at the moment. If all went wrong with my results and at the end of the year i ended up with a 2:2, how would that affect my chances with looking at getting a job within the NHS? Would this route be closed off because of the 2:2 or would there possibly still be a chance of getting an interview/job?

    Hi

    I really wouldnt worry too much about your degree classification - I know people who came out with firsts and still have not got a job almost 3 years after qualifying. Others got 2:2s and 3rds but have band 5 jobs. It all depends on how you get on in interviews now not your classification. Also from my exerience your grade can change so much in your final year (I was estimated a 3rd at the end of year 2 and came out with a 2:1).

    keep your chin up

    Hi Guybrush,
    To reassure you....... Your grade is only one part of your ability to be a great Physiotherapist. I agree with Choccy_21, getting a First in a Physiotherapy degree does not necessariy mean you will make a "better" Physiotherapist, nor does it mean you are more likely to get a job. Prepare well for your interview by writing lots of "reflective" statements, have a good CPD folder, think about the questions you might be asked and be open-monded about your strengths & weaknesses. Interviews are objective and are marked on a strict criteria so stay positive!

    Re: NHS Physiotherapy Jobs

    Hello everybody!
    I am a Brazilian who just got my European passport. I am planning to study a health care career in Europe (most likely in England or Netherlands).
    Is physio a good career to follow? I don't think there are many physio jobs outside UK (checking the forums - maybe I am wrong).
    So I want to ask you health care professionals for some advice on which career to follow. I dont have any preference, as long as I have a job after I graduate (in Europe or internationally). I like all areas: physio, occupational therapy, medical radiology, laboratory techinician, pharmacist.
    Any advice for me??
    Thank you so much.

    Re: NHS Physiotherapy Jobs

    Hi,
    you are listing 5 occupations that are very different from each other - both in qualification pathway as well as work area. And it is a little difficult to understand, i.e. how can someone that wants to be a PT or OT possibly be interested in being a Laboratory Technician???

    May I suggest that you read up a bit more about the proofessions and then do work experience internship or similar in the professional areas. That may help you making a decision.

    Follow your heart.

    Cheers,
    Fyzzio

    Must have Kinesiology Taping DVD
    Thanks for your reply, Fyzzio.
    I am considering those 5 because I want to avoid unemployment after graduation. I have seen jobs in Europe are very tough to get right now as everybody seems to have a good education (comparing to the education I received in Brazil Europeans are 1000 light-years ahead of me). Education system here in BR is awful!
    It is my dream to receive a good education and get a job after that in the field.
    Thanks again.
