Course Summary

Overview
Are you an experienced allied health professional? Do you want to develop your expertise as a clinician in the area of neuroscience? This course will develop and enhance your clinical expertise, and teach you the fundamentals of research so that you can critically reflect on your practice in neurorehabilitation, your patients and yourself. You’ll explore links between research, theory, policy and practice, and how to apply them to optimise practice and service delivery. You'll become an effective leader and practitioner in the field of neurorehabilitation.

The full master's course can be studied 1 year full-time or 3 years part-time starting in September. If you don’t want to commit to full or part-time study of the entire master's, you can develop your educational portfolio over a longer period of time by undertaking staged study that leads to the award of Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert), Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) and MSc in separate stages. Each stage can be studied 1 year part-time starting in September. You can also study the combined PgDip (PgCert and PgDip) as a 2 year part-time course starting in January. The MSc stage (dissertation) can also be studied 1 year part-time starting in May.

Careers and your future

On this course you’ll have learnt to analyse complex information, manage uncertainty, deal with abstract concepts and use critical reflective practice. These are all skills that will advance your career within the health and social care environment. You’ll have acquired the expertise to improve the lives of people with disease, trauma or disorders of the nervous system in a multi-disciplinary and holistic way.

This programme is ideal for clinicians with one or more years of experience, clinical leads, managers and research academics who are looking to develop and improve their expertise in neurology and rehabilitation. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.

Modules

The dissertation aims for students to learn about research by working with an academic supervisor on a topic relevant to their clinical specialist practice, to demonstrate their ability to integrate conceptual and theoretical issues within their clinical specialist practice or discipline, and to learn how to design and conduct an original piece of research in an area relevant to their clinical specialist practice or discipline.
