Hi, I'm Shana Hall and I studied BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy within Health Sciences at the University of Southampton.

The physiotherapy course is both very popular and prestigious so I feel extremely privileged to have been offered a place here. The Faculty of Health Sciences has excellent facilities as well as world-class academic researchers.

I chose to study here for many reasons. The University of Southampton is a Russell Group university and is continuously improving in every area as well as being ambitious to improve further. I was impressed with the sports facilities which were right around the corner from my lectures so everything was in the one place and I settled in very comfortably.

I believe my degree from Southampton stands in the highest regards of prospective employers as it delivers excellent, up to date teaching resulting in highly skilled, academic and confident graduates.

I really value the lecturers as they are all brilliant speakers who engage you in the topics covered. My personal tutor is there to discuss any of my concerns and has really helped me prepare for employment after university.

We also have guest lecturers who are currently in clinical practice and are able to use videos and patient visits to augment our learning.

Our lecturers are continually publishing research and contributing to evidence-based practice so as a student here you are being taught by people at the front line of new physiotherapy techniques.

I would definitely recommend to anyone to get involved in sports clubs or societies. As a committee member of the University's Netball Club I went on many sports tours and had amazing weekly matches and socials.

You only get as much out of University as you put in so I would advise anyone to get involved in as much as possible and you will have an amazing experience.

After I graduate I plan to enter the NHS as the mentorship it offers will help me to develop into a highly skilled practitioner. I want to get a rotational post so that I can try each of the core physiotherapy areas again and decide where my strengths lie.

I also plan to do a Masters course and continue to use my spare time to work with sports clubs. I have already been offered my ideal NHS post after only one week since graduating. I could not have achieved a job so fast without the help, guidance and teaching I received here.
