Rehabilitation Science

Research focuses on rehabilitation for chronic conditions, particularly musculoskeletal conditions (which affect 12 percent of the UK population). The aim is to improve outcomes and quality of life for people with physically disabling conditions by utilising strategic lines of enquiry, mixed methods and working across the research spectrum. You can research into: development and evaluation of clinical measurement tools; understanding patients' and their carers' problems (e.g. surveys and qualitative research); understanding therapy and service contexts; testing existing and novel rehabilitation and patient education interventions, with a particular focus on clinical trials; dissemination and knowledge transfer of effective rehabilitation into practice.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have a 1st Class or upper 2nd Class undergraduate degree that provides a foundation in the principles of rehabilitation sciences (in occupational therapy or physiotherapy) and scientific practice. Masters degree is preferred but not essential; however, applicants without a Masters degree should provide evidence of previous research methods training. We welcome applications from students who may not have formal/traditional entry criteria but who have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully; the Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) process could help you to make your work and life experience count; the APL process can be used for entry onto courses or to give you exemptions from parts of your course; 2 forms of APL may be used for entry: the Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) or the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). English requirement for non-UK/ EU students is an overall IELTS score of at least 6.0 with no less than 5.5 in any one element.
