BSc (Hons) Sport Rehabilitation
- Graduated 2016
- Originally from Hungary
- Experienced placements in the UK and abroad
Edit originally qualified as a landscape architect in her home country of Hungary. She decided to make a big change in her life and move to the UK, to chase her dream of becoming a health professional.
Her first step was to study an Access to Medical Science course as a mature student, before applying to study at university level.
"I visited Bradford for the first time for an Applicant Experience Day, after receiving a conditional offer. After taking a tour around the Faculty of Health Studies and the campus, I knew this was the place to be!"
It was the time spent on placement that stood out to Edit when looking back on her time studying Sport Rehabilitation.
"Each placement was unique. My first experience in the University Physiotherapy and Sport Rehabilitation Clinic provided me with valuable hands-on experience with real people, under the supervision of our lecturers. I also undertook placements at a hospital, a private clinic, a gym and a pilates studio. Our placement co-ordinators always did their best to find the most suitable placement for students."
Edit organised her own elective placement, travelling back to Hungary for an insight into how treatment methods and protocols differed between healthcare systems.
"I experienced life in an outpatient department, a trauma / intermediate care unit and a musculoskeletal rehabilitation ward. I had a week in each, and worked with three different supervisors. I was allowed to lead classes for musculoskeletal patients and really got to know the department."
Outstanding student support
The facilities available to our students made a big difference to Edit throughout her degree. The 24/7 access to the library and ICT equipment, and the ability to use the practical rooms for revision and group planning activity were particularly useful. But it is the commitment of the academic staff here at Bradford that Edit will remember.
"I am thankful for the support of all my lecturers throughout my three years studying Sport Rehabilitation. Every member of staff was approachable and helpful. No matter how small or big, personal or academic an issue was, I was always able to ask for advice or discuss it with someone."
