The Faculty of Health Studies’ SSPRD/CPD provision was reviewed, revised and revalidated in 2015-16. The MSc Rehabilitation Studies forms part of the multidisciplinary Specialist Skills and Post Registration Development Framework for Flexible Learning (SSPRD Framework).

The course of study and the collection of modules chosen to study will contextualise learning by addressing the Aims and Learning Outcomes for the programme (found in the Programme Specification; see 4.1 below).

Modules such as Research Methods and Data Analysis & Dissertation modules enable individuals to shape their own focus of study within the modules aims and learning outcomes by learning the principles being taught and applying them to their own clinical employment area. Not all of the modules listed on the website which form the defined pathways on the MSc Rehabilitation Studies and endorsed pathways are offered every academic year
