RGU Graduations: Graduate praises lecturer support

A physiotherapy graduate has praised the support of her lecturers at Robert Gordon University (RGU) for getting her through her degree.

Brittany Smith from Elgin received her BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy at HM Theatre yesterday.

She said: “The classes are very small so we had a very close class and did a lot of events together. The placements are really good, you go on a lot of them, and a lot of it is to do with the staff. The staff are amazing, they’re so helpful and they get you through a lot.”

The 21-year-old will follow her parents into a role in the health sector after accepting a job at NHS Grampian.

“My mum’s a doctor and my dad’s a pharmacist,” she said. “I’ve always been very interested in healthcare and I’ve always wanted to do something in that area.

“I did a lot of work experience before I came to university and realised that physiotherapy was what I wanted to do. It was definitely suited to me because it’s such an active job as well.”

As well as university placements, the course provides a number of volunteering opportunities from supporting disabled swimming lessons to physiotherapy at sporting events.

Miss Smith said: “Having the opportunity to gain so much work experience in the role has increased my confidence and skills and improved my career prospects.”
