Master of Rehabilitation Science

      What will I study?


      What you will learn

      Learn the principals of best practice rehabilitation

      You will learn about the principles of rehabilitation and habilitation, including how to help people regain lost skills, the physiology of fitness and conditioning and the pathophysiology of selected conditions and specific needs in different chronic disease populations.

      Become an expert in health promotion

      This course will build on your knowledge and skills to identify and analyse the multiple determinants of health that influence wellbeing, and to design and implement rehabilitation strategies in a holistic, person-centred manner at both an individual and group level.

      Evidence informed clinical decision-making

      You will learn about emerging technologies and rehabilitation approaches and develop strategies for the effective and safe implementation of rehabilitation in a range of practice contexts.

      Course structure

      To gain the Master of Rehabilitation Science you must complete 150 points comprising of:

      • Six core subjects
      • Four elective subjects; and
      • One capstone subject

      Capstone subjects are compulsory and provide students with an opportunity to consolidate and extend the learning that they have undertaken across their course of study. These subjects vary, and may include project-based learning, a research project, or coursework outlining best practice.


      On average, it is estimated that students will be required to allocate 15-19 hours per week for ‘study’ time for each subject. However, the time commitment required can vary for each student based on individual task management and planning skills, familiarity with the material, reading style and speed.
