Rehabilitation is an exciting and growing area that is relevant to a range of healthcare practitioners. Our postgraduate rehabilitation provision is suitable for a range of professionals working in health and social care who wish to enhance their skills of critical enquiry, and broaden their understanding of the underlying theory, research and policy guiding rehabilitation practice. Professionals on the course can include nurses, doctors, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers and speech and language therapists. Our postgraduate rehabilitation can be studied on a module-by-module basis and is supported by the world leading research being completed by our academics.
