Course content

This MSc has been developed in conjunction with the British Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation for healthcare professionals and people aspiring to work in the rapidly evolving field of cardiovascular rehabilitation.

You are supported by teaching staff who are active in research that is critical to our understanding of cardiovascular health. The programme is designed for people already working in the field, as well as students without a professional background.

All students receive a grounding in the theory and practice of cardiovascular rehabilitation, and you will apply this knowledge to real life settings. We have strong links with the NHS and the City Healthcare Partnership. Heart patients come to the University twice a week and are involved in our research, which currently includes a UK study to look at the benefits of high intensity training to heart health.

We are currently seeking accreditation to allow students to register for the BACPR exercise instructor training qualification, permitting them to work directly with cardiac patients undertaking structured exercise training programmes in the UK.

The programme is available at postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma and masters level. It is designed to allow flexible study to enable professionals to continue working

Study information

The course combines theory and practice to give students the knowledge and skills to work directly with patients undergoing cardiovascular rehabilitation in the community. Students will undertake a clinical placement and will also gain advanced academic skills and knowledge to undertake an extended research project.

The MSc is a 45 week programme of full-time study although different levels of award are available:

  • Postgraduate certificate: 3 x 20 credit taught modules taken over an academic year (part-time)
  • Postgraduate diploma: 6 x 20 credit taught modules taken over an academic year
  • Masters degree: Successful completion of the postgraduate diploma stage allows progression to the masters stage which consists of a research project and dissertation written up as a journal article submitted, where possible, to a relevant peer-reviewed national/international academic journal

Part-time routes are also available for the postgraduate diploma and masters.

Future prospects

This programme has been designed as a vocational qualification for professionals and graduates wanting to expand the life chances of people living with heart disease. Many people undertaking this programme of study may already work in the health service.

For these students, the course will strengthen your CV and enable further professional development as you become an expert in your field. People who do not already work in the sector may seek employment within the NHS, or for private healthcare providers, including BUPA and Nuffield Health, or as sports rehabilitators.
