BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, 2016
Growing up in a medical family, always having an interest in the human body, and being surrounded by sport, meant UCLan’s BSc Physiotherapy course was a perfect opportunity for Lauren Pilkington-Steele to work towards an enjoyable career.
“Going to University is an experience that you can’t replicate. You get so much out of the experience, not just a degree,” says Lauren. “From UCLan, I have met some of my best friends who will be lifelong friends."

UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
