To reflect growing opportunities in Rehabilitation Sciences, Loughborough University is launching a new MSc in Exercise Rehabilitation in Autumn 2024.
This flexible programme will enable you to develop fundamental knowledge, understanding and skills across all aspects of rehabilitation sciences in an exercise context, before giving you the opportunity to specialise in musculoskeletal rehabilitation or rehabilitation for non-communicable (chronic) diseases.
You will have the chance to gain practice-based experience, as well as undertake an independent research project to address a scientific question or real-life issue.
You will also benefit from the research expertise and facilities available on campus, including in the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine-East Midlands, and at the National Rehabilitation Centre (NRC) at Stanford Hall which is expected to open in late 2024.
