Course content

The unique neurorehabilitation pathway of our physiotherapy course is the UKs most substantial programme related to movement science or the motor relearning approach.

Delivered by expert tutors, you will explore the evidence underpinning stroke rehabilitation and apply this to retraining motor control after stroke.

As you investigate current research, you will be introduced to cutting-edge technology involved in stroke rehabilitation, including SaeboFlex, bilateral arm trainers and feedback devices for coordination. You will use equipment in our state-of-the-art human movement laboratory to conduct small case studies using this technology, improving your knowledge of the biomechanics of movement and research methods.

Within a stimulating climate of evidence-based practice and internationalisation, the Division of Physiotherapy gives you access to world-class facilities and a unique opportunity to learn from expert practitioners, educators and researchers.

The course is grounded in critical analysis and reflective practice, equipping you with the skills to evaluate contemporary professional practice. The various pathways include a strong emphasis on evidence-based practice, physiotherapy theory, research and specialist interests.

Postgraduate study is an essential investment in career progression and the pursuit of excellence in care delivery. We hope you will join us during this challenging and fulfilling stage of your career and we look forward to working with you to achieve your highest goals.
