Funding the upfront costs for this course will be difficult to achieve on my own. I applied to all healthcare scholarships and non specific scholarships that accepted postgraduate studies on the Bermuda Scholarships website and emailed private clinics and charities in Bermuda but have been unsuccessful this year which I believe is due to the abnormal start date of the course and lack of funds available. I have applied for the U.K government postgraduate loan which they are willing to loan £10,280. but this will be split over the two years so I will get £5140 to cover tuition/accommodation/placement fees each year. This helps with some of the cost .Tuition is £12,700 a year, plus placement fee of £3,000 over the 2 years = £28,400 for the course. The National Health Service bursary has been cut and the only help I would be allowed is £1000 but I wouldn’t be able to get that support if I have the U.K government postgraduate loan. Unfortunately my parents are unable to support me financially. I have also decided to create a go fund me page to see if there is anyone out there able to support in any little way possible. I have asked for advice from qualified physios to see how they funded their courses and they were able to work alongside their studies and I will be doing the same as much as I can. I have come so far and I am thankful for all of the support I have received thus far .If there is anyway you can help toward any of my fees I would be so grateful for it , any little helps!
After I qualify as physiotherapists I want to work in the NHS to develop, build my experience and then open a clinic of my own. This would include physiotherapists who have specialised in different areas to promote client health and wellbeing once treated. I also have the aspiration to create a program collaborated with local and international clinics where aspiring physiotherapists like me will be welcomed and given work experience opportunities since work experience is hard to get in this field without the experience at any age. The plan of getting straight onto a physiotherapy course at the start of my journey didn’t work, I changed my plan but my goal of becoming a qualified physiotherapist will never change and I will continue to keep on working hard until I achieve this goal .
