Teaching

The MSc programme in Neurorehabilitation has been designed to encourage reflection, self-reliance and in depth learning, preparing students for the challenges of employment within a changing health and social care system.

Teaching, learning and assessment are designed to ensure that successful students are able to:

Search and critically appraise appropriate sources of knowledge and expertise within their specialist academic areas.
Apply academic and key transferable skills.
Reflect on own learning experience.

The taught modules are offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays of each week during the two 12-week university teaching terms, with students undertaking the dissertation following successful completion of the modules. Full-time mode of study requires two days per week, while part-time mode of study requires one day per week attendance on campus.

Student learning is supported by web-based resources on Blackboard Learn with provision of lecture and reading links and relevant resources to support learning.

Programme, and module descriptors delineate learning outcomes to ensure clarity and promote the active preparation of students.

All module blocks are compulsory to the programme and are tailored to the requirements of practitioners in neurorehabilitation.

Assessment

Assessment is normally a mixture of written assignments, exams and the dissertation.
