Ang, along with Hiba Madhi, a second-year student from Burlington, will be hosting a webinar for everyone considering studying physiotherapy. Discover more about

  • North Ryde, Sydney

OzTREKK Student Reviews About the Macquarie DPT

“Program is great but difficult (fast pace). Very nice teaching staff for the most part. The university itself is situated a little far from the city which is sometimes inconvenient; however, everyone really cares about the students here which is really comforting. Also, MD and DPT students have many lectures together and clinical hours together which is really interesting and fun!” Eric A

“I am 4 weeks into my program. All the lectures and tutorials are very organized, and delivered with a purpose (developing our clinical reasoning, evidenced-based practice, and patient-centered care).” Fred W

“I like the small cohort; I feel like you get to know your classmates a lot more closely. I also like the enthusiasm of the instructors. They are enthusiastic and passionate about the content and deliver it in an interesting way.” William B
