School of Rehabilitation Sciences
Our focus is on high quality, evidence based rehabilitation.
Our aim is to equip and support all those involved in providing rehabilitation to optimise recovery from injury, ill health or living with long-term conditions.
How do we achieve that?
At the forefront of policy and practice
We're actively engaged in research and policy making, working with a range of professional bodies to influence rehabilitation in practice. Our education reflects that, with some pioneering new courses designed in response to current healthcare initiatives.

Successful rehabilitation depends on the collaborative efforts of a range services and practitioners. We provide an interprofessional learning environment where you'll have opportunities to learn and share with others from across health, social care and a wide range of life sciences, preparing you to work in partnership with a variety of colleagues.
Involving service users
Our education programmes are designed in collaboration with health and social care service users. Their experience pervades all teaching, learning, practice and research.

This includes personal tutors, supervisors and excellent peer mentoring support (commended by the Health Professions Council) to help guide you through your studies and plan your career path.
