Advanced Audiology and Clinic
You’ll learn the clinical and professional skills you need to become an audiology healthcare professional. The first 3 years follow our BSc Audiology programme. The fourth year develops your scientific and leadership skills. We are the only UK university with in-house audiology and auditory implant clinics.
Hearing loss, deafness, tinnitus and balance problems are major health issues and have an impact on quality of life. You’ll learn to manage these conditions and support patients while developing academic, professional and employability skills.
The course teaches you about the biopsychosocial and technical foundations of audiology, as well as broader scientific, technical, healthcare and professional skills you’ll need to practice as an audiologist.
Throughout the course, you’ll attend practical sessions in our dedicated skills laboratory and clinics. You’ll also go on a 27-week clinical placement.
You’ll also get to explore in depth an aspect of clinical practice of your choice and you’ll do Masters-level experimental research in a field of audiology that interests you.
This course is excellent preparation for PhD-level study and, depending which modules you choose, will help you build towards clinical scientist registration through the British Academy of Audiology’s Higher Training Scheme.
This programme is recognised by the National School of Healthcare as a Practitioner Training Programme (PTP).
The course is accredited by:
the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists, allowing you to work as a hearing care assistant after year 1
Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists, allowing you to work as a clinical audiologist
Health and Care Professions Council, allowing you to work in the private sector as an audiologist
If you’d prefer a more general approach, or you’d like to focus on a different specialism, you can choose from our other pathways.
– This Integrated Masters degree will give you the clinical and professional skills you need to become an audiology healthcare professional.
