This is a flexible programme structured to provide core and option modules tailored to the individual student profile.

In parallel to and offering shared learning with the MSc Rehabilitation, this course offers the opportunity to enhance the skills of critical enquiry and gain an appreciation of the underlying theory, research and policy guiding current health practice. There is a strong emphasis on exercise physiology, the role of exercise through the lifespan, and psychology for exercise to understand issues critical to adherence and behaviour change.

Highlights

  • Shared campus with one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK.
  • Before starting the course, you can discuss your work and personal and professional aspirations to select appropriate modules and create an individual programme plan.
  • You will have the chance to meet other postgraduate students with whom you will share the core modules.
  • You can take individual modules as free-standing short courses without committing to the full MSc.
  • The course can be taken full time over one calendar year (Thursdays and Fridays) or part time over two years (attending for one day). More flexible routes can be discussed with the course director within a five year period.
