Master of Health Sciences

This Master of Health Sciences is a research degree that culminates in examination by thesis. Usually, there is no coursework component although coursework may be requested by the Dean to support the research process. Over the course of your studies you will explore the importance of early intervention to avoid costly medical treatment and the rehabilitation of those with chronic conditions and musculoskeletal injuries.

Candidates in the Master’s by Research program can undertake their research in either a full-time or a part-time capacity. The maximum time for completion of the Master’s by Research (not including periods of approved leave of absence) will normally be two years for a full-time student and four years for a part-time student. The minimum time for completion will normally be one year. The Master’s thesis is assessed by external examiners

Each candidate is required to have a minimum of two supervisors who will mentor and direct the candidate throughout the research phase and up to the point the thesis is put forward for examination. Before submitting an application, students are encouraged to contact the School of Health Sciences to arrange a discussion with a suitably qualified member of staff.
