One feels very strongly that the lecturers are absolutely dedicated to developing each of us students into excellent physiotherapists. They do not allow any slacking. They bang on about making sure that our behaviour is entirely professional from day one, but somehow they manage to combine being very firm with being very encouraging - and it is completely clear that they are dedicated to helping each of us learn what we need to learn in order to master both the academic subject matter as well as the professional demeanour expected from a physiotherapist.
