The MSc in Disability Research and Practice will explore all aspects of disability. Some examples might include research into dementia and its effect upon families, developing work practices to facilitate more effective treatment of adults who have suffered a stroke, exploring how speech and language therapists can contribute to multi-professional working with clients experiencing acute problems with swallowing, assessing interventions for children and adults with dyslexia, autistic spectrum disorders and dyspraxia.
This is an excellent opportunity for professionals working in Health, Social Care and Education to choose their own area of interest within the field of disability.
Normally a student would be expected to have a good first degree. However, consideration will be given to Approving Prior Educational Learning (APL) for those professionals who can present a case based on their career history and experience.We recognize that there are many highly experienced professionals working in the areas of health and social care who do not have formal qualifications and have not come through the traditional university route but have excellent and appropriate experience. Such individuals may, after making a case for APL be accepted onto the MSc thereby removing the need to complete a first degree.
