  • The Hearing and Balance Centre is helping to improve the quality of life of people with hearing or balance problems
  • Research in the Hearing and Balance Centre strives to create new signal processing technology in order to generate the next generation of hearing prosthesis to help more people hear better. Our developments will help hearing impaired people to communicate better in noisy and difficult situations.

Audiology: combine science, technology and patient care to improve quality of life

Audiology is the healthcare science of hearing loss, tinnitus and balance disorders. Audiologists work closely with affected people of all ages and their families to enable them to overcome the barriers posed by such conditions, through use of science, state-of-the-art technology, and rehabilitation techniques. Audiologists are autonomous professionals, responsible for their own caseloads. They also participate as members of a multidisciplinary team, playing an important role in the evaluation, diagnosis and management of a diverse range of conditions.

Audiology is an exciting, challenging and rewarding profession, giving you the opportunity to combine a passion for science with strong communication and problem-solving skills to really make a difference to the quality of people’s lives.

At Southampton, our aim is to develop the future leaders of audiology. We are an internationally renowned centre of excellence for education in audiology with near 100% graduate-employment rates. Our undergraduate programme was rated first in UK by the Complete University Guide, 2014.
