Course content

The prevention and rehabilitation of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a cost-effective means of managing the leading cause of death in the UK and in many parts of the developed world. Our Master’s course is specifically designed to provide advanced education and learning opportunities for graduates and healthcare professionals within this field.

The MSc is delivered by a team of experienced academics and leading specialist front-line lead practitioners, enabling graduates to leave with the most up-to-date level of knowledge. The aims of our course are for you to develop:

  • a critical understanding of cardiovascular health and rehabilitation concepts
  • a scientific and enquiring approach to the study of physiological, psychological, social and healthcare management components for managing people with and/or those at higher risk of CVD.

The course is highly flexible, allowing you to study full time or part time to suit your personal and work commitments. Flexibility is achieved through the delivery of modules over three-day blocks (see our Timetable 2017/18) followed by eight weeks of campus – or home-based learning. This allows students nationally and internationally to attend the course. Our course is delivered by a team of experienced academics and also practitioners who work in high-profile areas.
