So, the results are in...
From what some other students have told me, the first year is arguably the hardest as you are learning a lot of new principles and need to adjust to learning again, albeit on a part time basis. I must admit that even though I was given an excellent foundation by Michael, Andrew et al at the Midlands School of Massage, it is the balance of work/life/study that has been the hardest. I'm hoping that this gets a little easier as I settle into the course.
That said, it has been fun and I have worked very hard, which thankfully has reflected in my results: 4 x A grade for each of the subjects; Anatomy, Physiology, Professional Practice and finally Diagnosis and Practice.
A hard first year but I am very pleased with those results!! Looks like I'll be busy come September time then...!
