In line with Health Education England’s Values-based Recruitment Framework, the aim of the Physiotherapy admissions team is to have a selection process that is open, objective and fair in order to select students with the ability, character and values to become caring, competent, effective and safe physiotherapists.
Stage 1: UCAS form
Your UCAS application will be reviewed and your application will be assigned a score based on your GCSE grades, confirmed (not predicted) A/AS-levels or other academic qualifications, actual/predicted degree (where appropriate) and the quality and appropriateness of your personal statement and reference. Applications are then ranked and the highest scoring candidates invited for interview.
Stage 2: Interview
If you are invited for interview, you will be asked to attend either a morning or afternoon event in the Physiotherapy facilities at the University of Leicester. Within the interview event there will be some group and individual activities which will include a brief presentation, followed by an interview with members of the physiotherapy student recruitment team. We will then decide whether to make an offer (which may be unconditional or conditional) and this will be communicated to you via UCAS. If you narrowly fail to meet the terms of a firm conditional offer, we may still consider you and might admit you to the course if there are unfilled places.
Student Learning Contract
As part of the offer for a place on a Physiotherapy course at the University of Leicester all students are required to agree to abide by the conditions of a Student Learning Contract (PDF) which you will be asked to sign during the induction week at the beginning of the course. This learning contract will apply to the entire duration of the course and the signed copy will be stored as a PDF on your University electronic record.
All students are subject to contractual regulations of University of Leicester, the Physiotherapy Course and of the Practice Education Organisation at which they are placed.
