MSc
Ann Underhill
Masters study type: Part time

Why choose this course:



• This is the only distance learning MSc Hand Therapy course in the UK which will give you the flexibility to study the course from home on a part time basis so you can stimulate the development of your own learning.

• You can study this course as part of your personal and professional development, allowing you to develop in areas of hand therapy that interest and matter to you.

• In the latest Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey, 95% of students were satisfied with the overall quality of the course, while 100% of students felt the course enhanced their academic ability and better prepared them for their future career.

• If you complete specific modules within the course you'll be eligible to apply to the British Association of Hand Therapists(BAHT) for accreditation as a BAHT accredited hand therapist when you graduate.

• You'll be taught by a highly experienced teaching team who are actively involved in hand therapy research so you can be sure you'll be learning all the latest theories and developments.

About the course:



This course is for qualified occupational therapists and physiotherapists working in the field of hand therapy. You don't need to be working in hand therapy full time but a proportion of your work needs to be within hand therapy.

Building on the skills you will have gained in your own professional practice, this course enables you to continue learning, evaluating, maintaining and developing services for hand therapy both now and in the future. The course is divided into the Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and Masters stage but you can choose to study as little as one module which would contribute to your continued professional development.

You'll find that the course is flexible to suit you and fit around your other commitments, but what you learn will still be challenging and interesting.
During the course you'll be able to:

• Develop your ability to critically evaluate and reflect on your own practice in hand therapy
• Critically review the theory which underpins hand therapy
• Contribute to the body of knowledge about hand therapy
• Develop your understanding of research methods and research skills
• Develop yourself personally and professionally
• Make improvements in clinical practice and research into hand therapy.

Our teaching team will also give you the full support and help you'll need with your studies. You can get tutorial support by email, telephone or face-to-face depending on what suits you best. As a distance learning student you will have access to our libraries with an extensive range of journals and online resources which will help you with your self directed learning.
