Cardiovascular Rehabilitation

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 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.
