This programme was historically delivered at University College London as the MSc in Neurophysiotherapy under the direction of Dr. Margaret Mayston and in consultation with Dr. Mayston, we have developed this programme to incorporate emerging interventions and innovative clinical practice. This modular programme offers continuing professional development for therapists with an interest and some experience in the clinical management of neurological conditions including stroke and long-term neurological conditions.
The aim of the programme is to extend clinical competency in this area of work and to help participants develop specialised theoretical and practical knowledge and skills which are directly applicable to their work practice. All students take two core modules.
This clinical practice module provides opportunity to engage in specialised practice and critically discuss the evidence base for practice. The module incorporates current theoretical and evidence-based approaches to management of neurological conditions and provision of specialist rehabiitation services.
2 . Neurological Theory and Evidence Based Practice
This module provides opportunity to develop specialised knowledge of neurological conditions, critically evaluate concepts and exisiting and emerging knowledge pertinent to the management of neurological conditions within the context of interdisciplinary team work. The programme is therefore, designed to give clinicians the opportunity to explore and evaluate the evidence base for their practice enabling them to develop more effective and innovative approaches to practice.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Students will all have:-

International qualifications will be checked for appropriate matriculation to UK Higher Education postgraduate programmes.
Students who apply to enter stages of the programme may be admitted through normal Accreditation of Experiential Learning (AEL) or Accreditation of Certificated Learning (ACL) processes, or through an approved articulation agreement. Therefore such applicants must be able to demonstrate and evidence that they have the required learning outcomes as listed in the modules for which they are seeking exemption.
