The Postgraduate Certificate in Rehabilitation (PGCertRehab) is a one-year, part-time postgraduate course. The PGCertRehab combines an interdisciplinary learning model with clinical and research expertise, making this course unique. The people who complete the PGCertRehab will find themselves better equipped to deal with a broad range of rehabilitation issues and be able to demonstrate to potential employers and funders that they possess the necessary skills to get results. The PGCertRehab can be an avenue into the Postgraduate Diploma in Rehabilitation by completing two further 30-point papers from the Rehabilitation Teaching and Research Unit.
Enrolments for study commencing in the first semester 2013 are now closed. We will start accepting applications for study commencing in the second semester 2013 on 28th of March.
