MSc Physiotherapy Advanced (Neurology)

MSc Physiotherapy Advanced (Neurology)

This program is designed to provide an opportunity for students to question and challenge current practice in neurological physiotherapy and enables students to study the healthcare, management, and rehabilitation of people with neurological and neuromuscular problems from a dynamic and expanding perspective. It also aims to enable students to evaluate evidence both for current practice and for new approaches in physiotherapy practice. The structure of the core modules meets the needs of individuals to review and evaluate physiotherapy within the field of neurology and to integrate this into their clinical practice where appropriate. The option module choice allows students to select the model that best suits their own specific requirements in terms of personal and professional development. The research module and dissertation, together with core modules such as Evidence-based Practice OR Assessment and Measurement, develop the student’s research capabilities and critical evaluation skills.
