This course is offered at Masters level and is delivered at our Glenside Campus.

Course content includes:

  • Clinical neuroscience and Biomechanics:
    • Functional anatomy, physiology and biomechanics
    • The role of neuroplasticity, motor learning and cognitive function in neurorehabilitation
    • Contemporary research relating to clinical neuroscience.
  • Understanding how research informs practice:
    • Current research into the principles of neurorehabilitation
    • Current treatment approaches in neurological rehabilitation.
  • Specialist clinical skills in neurorehabilitation:
    • Neurological conditions and specialist rehabilitation approaches
    • Advanced approaches and the role of evidence-based practice
    • Specialist treatment approaches commonly used in neurorehabilitation.
  • Assessment of neurological conditions:
    • The pathology of complex neurological conditions and the clinical guidelines, service pathways, health policy which influence their treatment
    • Neurological assessment methods
    • Neurological assessment tools
    • Developing and assessing patient centred goals and integrating them to everyday practice
    • The role of the ICF in clinical practice.


Delivery of taught sessions will take place in settings such as the simulation suites at our Glenside Campus and will be designed to represent the clinical environment. University-based study days will be split into theory and practical sessions. During theory sessions lectures will be delivered by expert speakers to address current/relevant evidence-based practice.

Contact hours will include taught sessions at Glenside Campus. You will typically receive up to 5 days of face to face teaching and it is expected each of these days will typically constitute 7 hours of teaching. Taught sessions will integrate lectures, case-study presentations, critical debate sessions, assessment workshops and interactive practical sessions. In addition, phone, e-mail and discussion group contact with staff is available throughout the module - typically with up to two hours available for tutorial/assignment/module support.
