Course summary


Our part-time course is for experienced healthcare practitioners, from nurses to clinical psychologists, working within stroke services across the health and social care sectors.

It’s designed to challenge multidisciplinary professionals to critically examine and reflect on current guidelines, evidence and delivery of care.

Bringing together health and social care practitioners gives you the opportunity to share best practice, enhance your knowledge, and collaborate across professions.

You’ll study two specialist core units and a compulsory independent study unit, Contemporary Issues in Practice.

Some of the topics you’ll consider include common stroke mimics, end of life care, nutrition, stroke thrombolysis, and intra-arterial and surgical interventions. You’ll look in-depth at case studies of rehabilitation too, discussing issues such as spasticity and pain management, patients’ hobbies, and the impact on daily living.

For your independent study project, you’ll create a project that’s unique to your interests, experiences or workplace. It’s an opportunity for you to apply your newly acquired knowledge and develop your professional skills.

You’ll learn from a multidisciplinary team, with specialist experience in stroke patient management, nutrition, and rehabilitation.

You can also study one or two of the units as part of your continuing professional development (CPD), you don’t have to complete the full PgCert.


As a graduate, you’ll have a recognised qualification in stroke care.

You’ll be able to show that you have knowledge, skills and expertise in the field of stroke practice at masters degree level.

When you complete PgCert Advanced Stroke Practice, you’re awarded 60 credits at Level 7 (masters level). You can build on these credits and work towards a full Master’s degree. You can discuss options for this further with the course tutors.
