This programme offers you the opportunity to advance your practice through selection of a profile of modules that meet your personal development needs and aspirations. Modules are designed to facilitate your capability to undertake a range of roles, for example, specialist, extended scope or consultant roles. They will also appeal to those involved in service development or role redesign.

The programme has a clinical focus and offers flexible learning for allied health professionals and nurses. We have developed the programme further by including the opportunity to undertake clinical placements overseas, enabling us to meet the needs of international students. Opportunities will be available for participants to evaluate their current practice and undertake learning experiences that advance their capability as a practitioner.


If applying from overseas, you should also bear in mind that the process of applying for a visa can be a long and complicated one and you are therefore advised to submit your application for study as early as possible, enabling us to provide you with the offer letter that will be necessary for your visa application well ahead of the programme start date.

For this programme, it is also possible to take relevant M Level modules from within the School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences . These would form part of the optional modules you are to choose as part of the MSc Health Studies programme. Our optional modules are each worth 20 credits, therefore, if you wish to take modules on offer within the School, these will also need to equate to 20 credits. We advise applicants to discuss this with academic staff either as part of the application process or during interview.

The modules listed on our website may occasionally be subject to change. For example, as you will appreciate, key members of staff may leave the University and this might necessitate a review of the modules that are offered. Where a module is no longer available, we will let you know as soon as we can and help you make other choices.

Through careful selection of modules you can create the course that will meet your individual development needs. Below are some examples of how previous students from diverse backgrounds have designed their own course of study.

Specialist Neurological Rehabilitation 1: Cognitive Neuropsychological Basis of Practice
Specialist Neurological Rehabilitation 2: Evaluation of Practice
