I got great responses in the other thread about what an undergrad in pharmacy is gonna be like in terms of intensity, hours and commitment required.
Physiotherapy UCD claims contact hours in their 1st year is about 35 per week.
Trinity claims about 20 hours per week in 1st year.
RCSI claims a full morning 9 to 1 most days and two classes afternoon, so I guess that falls in between the two at 25 hours per week or so.
Clinical placements I assume are 9 to 5 days + travel.
Like I said in the other thread I know guys doing/have done this course and they keep busy outside of college as well and not get weighted down to heavily.
Just general overview from any graduates - naturally around exam time you're going to need to put in full time hours, 9 to 9 basically.
But in the general course of term, how did you find the intensity of the course?
Naturally I assume if you have a interest in the nervous system, muscle/skeletal function and probably physiological well being in general, the concepts are gonna come easier to you also.
