Teaching and learning methods

You will benefit from the support of a personal tutor, peer group learning and a range of web-based learning materials and online discussion forums. Teaching also takes place in our specially designed rehabilitation skills labs.

Self-directed study

You will study an area of interest in depth, developing research and presentation skills and gain insight into possible careers.

Clinical placements are undertaken in a variety of healthcare environments including acute NHS hospital trusts, community based services, mental health trusts and private hospitals. The supervised hands-on experience is an essential opportunity to put theory into practice.

Assessment methods

Progress throughout the course is assessed through a combination of essays, written reports and presentations, written and practical examinations, clinical assessments and a research dissertation.
