You are supported by teaching staff who are active in research critical to our understanding of cardiovascular health. The programme is designed for people already working in the field, as well as students without a professional background.

About the course

Gain a grounding in the theory and practice of cardiovascular rehabilitation and apply this knowledge to real-life settings. We have strong links with the NHS and the City Healthcare Partnership.

We are currently seeking accreditation to allow students to register for the BACPR exercise instructor training qualification This will permit them to work directly with cardiac patients undertaking structured exercise training programmes in the UK.
The programme is available at postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma and masters level. It is designed to allow flexible study, enabling professionals to continue working.
