About This Course

This MSc degree in Exercise Rehabilitation aims to allow graduates to develop and apply principles of exercise-based preventative intervention, management of health and wellbeing, and rehabilitation to individuals who are involved in a variety of rehabilitative settings (e.g., healthy ageing, chronic disease). The degree will assimilate evidence-driven physical and psychological approaches that will equip you with a multi-disciplinary perspective on the role of habitual physical activity and/or exercise when working with individuals in rehabilitative settings.

Professional Accreditation

You’ll be able to use some of the knowledge and skills that they acquire to prepare for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) supervisory experience training, which is normally a pre-requisite of the Association’s professional accreditation.

Some of our former MSc students have won prestigious awards for ‘Best Postgraduate Verbal Presentation’ and ‘Best Postgraduate Poster Presentation’ at the BASES Student Conferences. These awards are open to MSc and PhD students from all UK Universities and the fact that our students have repeatedly won awards is an indication of the excellent quality of teaching and research training you’ll experience on our course.
