Project Description

Welcome to the University College Dublin 4th year BSc Physiotherapy Interview and CV Skills Manual. This is a guide for newly graduated physiotherapists and has been developed in order to fulfil the requirements of the Physiotherapy Practice IV module, with the aim of providing a comprehensive and unique resource for new graduates. Physiopedia was chosen as a means of informing the wider public through a popularly used medium. It aims to build on the previous work of the class of 2011.

Project Objectives

● This manual aims to provide CV, cover letter and personal statement writing tools to ensure that your first impression is a good one.


● Everyone knows interviews are a daunting and nerve-racking experience. This manual provides a step by step preparation template including how to prepare for an interview and how to approach competency based questions.


●In this current climate, physiotherapists are often unsure of their direction. Information is provided on continuing your professional development, volunteering possibilities and several Masters Programmes.
