Design and implement strategies that change lives.

The Rehabilitation Science program is for physiotherapists, exercise scientists and other allied health professionals, who want to become experts in rehabilitation and health promotion, to help rehabilitate people recovering from injury and illness.

As a student of this course, you’ll deepen your skills and learn the principles of best practice rehabilitation, including how to help people regain lost skills, the physiology of fitness and conditioning, the pathophysiology of common conditions, and the specific needs of those affected by limited ability and function.

As a graduate of the Rehabilitation Science course you will gain the same qualification and graduation certificate as an on-campus student because you will achieve identical learning outcomes from the same academics that teach our on-campus courses. If you complete your master’s you will also be invited to attend a graduation ceremony in Melbourne.

My favourite part of studying this course is the interaction between fellow students in the discussion boards and webinar sessions. Even if you miss the webinar sessions there is an option of watching the recorded version which was very useful for someone like me with full-time work.
