The Rehabilitation Studies MSc DISTANCE LEARNING course is a minimum of 3 years and a maximum of 5 year in duration. The course allows study at home but also has a compulsory residential week.
All of the modules in the MSc programme are taken online. A Masters degree is the equivalent of 180 credits. It is normal to take 60 credits/year with the final year being a 60 credit project. Each module is the equivalent of 20 credits so most students would study 3 modules/year.
It is necessary to attend the University for a residential week when you are studying Research Methodology and data analysis as these are compulsory modules for the MSc and require attendance to present your ideas relating to research projects and to meet supervisors.
The Gait analysis module also has a residential week as practical sessions are required.
The modules are assessed either by coursework submission or by exam taken at a pre-arranged local Higher Education Institute or British Council Office.
Students benefit from the course developing a greater understanding of the research process and an opportunity to research a particular area of interest to themselves or organisation. Many employers in the healthcare system now require additional skills to audit and/or provide evidence of the cost effectiveness of interventions and this course will develop these skills.
If you are interested in our Masters degree in Prosthetics and /or Orthotics Rehabilitation Studies (the title of the award depends on the modules selected) you will find information on the current course content, residential weeks, English language requirements for the current course etc. at
