Choosing to study in RCSI has undoubtedly been one of the best decisions in my life thus far.

The small class sizes in the School of Physiotherapy really enable us to learn to the best of our ability. The quality of teaching in RCSI is also a huge point in pride, with all lecturers among the highest qualified in their chosen fields.

Throughout my time in RCSI, I have always been made feel like an individual, rather than just another student to made up the numbers. Equally, the fact that RCSI is the only third level institution in Ireland solely dedicated to healthcare, means that you are surrounded by like-minded people. From day one you are taught in an interprofessional manner, collaborating with both Pharmacy and Medicine students on assignments and workshops. This allows us to prepare for what lies ahead in our careers as future healthcare professionals.

One would be forgiven for thinking that RCSI is all work and no play given the intense nature of the courses, but this is far from true. The social scene is brilliant with regular events and trips away with clubs and societies.

The international nature of the College allows you to immerse yourself in a wide variety of cultures at events throughout the year, especially during Cultural Diversity Month. This also means that you will have a network of people in every corner of the globe when you graduate from RCSI.
