  1. Right, this makes perfectly sense now, thank you! I only just got accepted into my undergrad for fall so I’m probably getting ahead of myself! Though it doesn’t hurt to think ahead I guess. It probably does makes sense that a prestigious school like Oxford who’s well known for it’s notable alumni and success would only provide masters for research and further credentials rather than provide necessary teachings for the workplace that your local university could! That being said, Oxford and Cambridge aren’t really dreams of mine, more just contemplations of the day. Though taking the opportunity to study abroad is something I would love to do (ignoring the heavy financial burdens), so I will start by finding PT programs in the Uk instead. Thank you for our reply. It was very helpful!
  2. Very helpful, thank you for your reply! After reading the other reply I think I will just pursue a regular PT program! It makes more sense to do so anyway. But this was helpful, thank you.
  3. Hey guys, I was wondering, let’s say I’m on my way to finish my undergrad and I’m now deciding where to go for my postgraduate, ultimately to become a physiotherapist. Let’s say my prestigious dream school is Oxford, Cambridge, or another university in Canada. However none have PT programs. If I go to Oxford for something like musculoskeletal sciences, would I still be eligible to be certified as a PT? My question is, do I necessarily HAVE to attend a masters in PT program in order to become a physiotherapist? Or can I go beyond and obtain a masters in something SIMILAR and be still eligible? I’ve checked everywhere and I couldn’t find anything objecting the idea of getting a masters in something similar. Though the catch is that it may take longer, for me it’s not really about the goal to be a physiotherapist, it’s also about educating myself and experiencing more. There are polytechnic schools (such as oxford brookes) which I read have the PT program but the difference from university is that polytechnic schools are more about preparing you for the workplace while universities focus more on research and education. I’m too poor to go to both schools for the purposes of education and qualification. Does it have to be a PT masters program? Thanks in advanced.
  4. Thanks for your response PTHopeful! It was very helpful and I really hope you get in! I looked into it and it is only 26 months (2 years) for the PT program and qualifying year, I was confused at first but you helped a lot! I’ll have to work really hard then and remain a good gpa though. Thanks a lot and tell me what happens, good luck!
  5. Hi everyone, I'm graduating this summer as class of 2020 (despite what's going on) and it's probably premature to even worry about this but I was wondering about the PT program at McGill university. I'm going to U of G for their bachelor of arts and science program and I know for the PT program at McGill and at most PT programs around Canada the prerequisite courses are the general bio, chem, physics, calc, anatomy, physio, etc. courses but I read that those who take the undergrad at McGill for the bachelor of science in rehabilitation sciences major in PT already have a reserved spot for the PT program but if you have an undergrad at another university (which I plan to do) and have the prerequisites, then you have to take the qualifying year for the master of science in PT at McGill and if you remain at a certain gpa for the whole year you get a reserved spot? I'm wondering if I can get more help and more info on this, whether my choice of undergrad (bachelor of arts and sciences) will affect my chances in any way, how the whole admission works, what should I take for my undergrad to maximize my chances, and whether it's even worth going to McGill or not. By the sounds of this, by not taking my undergrad at McGill, I'll have to end up taking an extra year there (which would be three years) if I want to attend their PT program, whereas if I just go to another PT school at a university in Ontario, I'll be taking just the two years than three. Originally I was planning on going to U of T for their PT program after my undergrad but I've always wanted to attend McGill and originally had wanted to take their bachelor of arts and sciences program but my parents thought i was too young to move to another province by myself. I figured by the time I finish undergrad I'll be around 22-23 and probably will be able to at that point. I know I'm not even in university yet but I mean I'm just sitting around in quarantine at this point so might as well plan ahead so that I can plan the right courses and make the right moves ahead of time. Can you guys give me more insight on this? Thanks in advanced
