Rebecca Abraham completed a BSc (Hons) Canine Therapy and is now opening her own hydrotherapy centre.


What does Writtle University College mean to you?

Writtle University College allowed me to gain knowledge and hands-on experience doing something that I love!

I have amazing memories, I have gained friendships and now have a big support network of people in my industry which has been invaluable while building my business. I am proud to have studied at Writtle University College and I will never forget my time here.


What were the highlights of your time at Writtle? 

I absolutely loved the time spent in the hydrotherapy clinics and getting hands on experience in both the underwater treadmill and pool.

I was able to treat a range of dogs and help design rehabilitation plans to help these dogs. I did extra work experience in my final year in the hydrotherapy clinics which really helped me gain confidence and see how a hydrotherapy centre is run.

The Writtle University College campus is such a relaxing and pretty place to be!


Where are you now and what are your plans for the future?

I am now opening my own hydrotherapy centre, and I hope to one day to come back to Writtle to complete a masters in veterinary physiotherapy.

Without having the amazing, knowledgeable lecturers that have supported me throughout my studies I wouldn't be here opening my own hydrotherapy centre.

They not only gave me the knowledge and skills in massage and hydrotherapy, but they also helped me develop business skills, which are invaluable now.


Is there anything else you would like to add?

The support given at Writtle really helped me to thrive and succeed in my course, when at times it felt like I was never going to be able to finish. The people I have met have become friends for life and been incredible supports both during and after university.

Thank you Writtle for allowing me to build the business of my dreams!
