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.
