RTRU Rehabilitation courses in 2020!

13 Feb 2020 9:26 AM | Kathy Duncan (Administrator)

The Rehabilitation Teaching and Research Unit (RTRU) of the University of Otago welcomes students from anywhere in the country.  They are a distance learning unit to the following programmes:

  • PGCertRehab
  • PGDipRehab
  • Masters in Health Sciences by thesis or dissertation
  • PhD

They are also very happy for students enrolled in other New Zealand tertiary institutions to take just one of their papers and include that in an award they are doing elsewhere (with the approval of their ‘home’ institution).  RTRU is also happy to consider crediting postgraduate study done elsewhere to their programmes.
