MSc - Master of Science
A distance learning course with an emphasis on contemporary leadership, this flexible Masters degree will give you the tools needed to design services and successfully implement change.
This MSc Rehabilitation course is for those with qualifications in Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy who wish to take their career to the next level - whether in a leadership role, in academic research or by advancing their clinical expertise.
Designed by UWE Bristol academics with input from industry specialists, the core modules of the course equip students with the skills, thinking and perspective to be able to implement change in settings ranging from established health and social care settings to marginal communities. Not just within the UK/ NHS framework but within a global context.
With several optional modules available, you can tailor the course to your own areas of interest, including neurorehabilitation, musculoskeletal rehabilitation, long term conditions, fatigue, health economics and knowledge mobilisation.
Flexible distance learning
The course can be taken entirely by distance with only a minimal amount of set hours for online contact. Students can set their own study schedule within each module's delivery time, so you can fit the course around working life.
Two optional modules include approximately 5 days of face-to-face time. You can choose to attend conference days across other modules but all lectures and other resources are posted online to enable an entirely flexible and distance based learning.
Preparation for the real world
Throughout the course, you will be stimulated to think about the broad scope of rehabilitation provision, exploring how to meet the needs of services users in all kinds of situations around the world.
We also support the development of your cognitive abilities. For example, writing skills, which are a vital part of requesting funding, communicating with stakeholders and future research.
Beyond the course, graduates will be ready to work autonomously, put their forward thinking into action, and make a positive impact in whatever type of setting they choose to work.
On graduation, you will have the qualification required to advance to Band 6, 7 or 8 within the NHS and its partners.
Overseas students will be able to register with the UK's Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and be eligible for work in the UK or Europe.
This Masters enables British students to seek out licencing opportunities in the USA.
In addition to these routes, the course will equip you with the skills needed to innovate and design services for patients and users in a diverse range of situations around the globe.
