What’s it like to be a physiotherapy student at an Australian university?

Meet Alexis, and discover what studying physiotherapy is really like!

We’ve all been there! It’s our first day of class at a new university amongst a sea of new faces. It’s nerve-wracking, especially if you’ve just moved to an entirely new city—or continent.

But it’s also incredibly exciting! The program you’ve been dreaming about for years is just about to begin and there are so many amazing opportunities for you to partake in. You meet new friends, and you travel to new places, and you learn new things—both in the classroom and outside of it.

And before you know it, you’re wearing your cap and gown because you’ve just completed your program. A whole new set of opportunities and adventures await you in your career, whether you stay in Australia or come back home to practice!

University of Sydney physiotherapy grad, Alexis Curtis, gives us a little glimpse into her experience with this.

“It was an amazing experience. I loved every second of it.”
