When I was in school I knew I wanted to study Physiotherapy. However, after my Leaving Certificate I didn’t get offered a place on a Physiotherapy course, instead I got offered a place on a Business course in DCU. After my first year in DCU I decided it wasn’t what I wanted so I left and started looking at ways that I could apply to study Physiotherapy or Sports Therapy.
Whilst looking online I came across the two year Sports Therapy course in Crumlin College. I applied as this would enable me to apply to Physiotherapy courses once I had completed the course. I studied year 1 and 2 of the Sports Therapy course. I really enjoyed the subjects that were taught. There was a good mix of practical and theory classes which kept it interesting and all of the subjects were very relevant to the course. All of the teachers were brilliant. They all really knew their subjects so well and couldn’t have done more to help me with anything throughout the two years. They were so helpful when it came to work that had to be done for the course but also when it came to applying for courses after Crumlin.
Crumlin had all of the resources required for the course and there was plenty of student support available. I really enjoyed student life in Crumlin College and made some really good friends. I am currently a final year BSc Physiotherapy student in Teesside University. Everything I learned in Crumlin has been so beneficial to me especially in my first year when it came to the Anatomy and Physiology modules and Massage. I thoroughly enjoyed my two years in Crumlin College and would definitely recommend it.
