FAQs

Q?

Is it possible to keep my full-time job and study at the same time?

A.

Absolutely. The course has been designed to accommodate busy lifestyles and personal/professional commitments. Classes take place over one weekend per month, if a personal commitment prevents attendance at class, students may make it up on an alternative weekend.

You do not have to wait until you have finished the Professional Diploma to start working in your field of study. After the successful completion of Stage One, graduates are awarded with a Certificate and many choose to commence work at that stage.

Our course facilitates a gradual changeover from the ‘old job’ to full-time work as a healthcare professional causing a minimum of financial stress. Some like to begin the changeover while still studying, others choose to wait until fully qualified. Either way is up to you!

Q?

Q?

I have no previous study in this area. Will this be an obstacle?

A.

Not at all. Students turn to Manual Therapy & Rehabilitation / Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation from a very wide variety of backgrounds and professions including fitness, other areas of healthcare, IT, banking, retail, hospitality and more. We have never identified a single group as being more likely to succeed. However, we rate motivation and communication skills as being important, as is an interest in people and the potential to study to third level. One of the most exciting parts of the course is the variety of life skills that students bring to the classroom. At the Institute we try to ensure you know as much as possible about the course before you enrol.
