About this course

You'll learn the clinical and professional skills you need to become an audiology healthcare professional. 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 the broader scientific, technical, healthcare and professional skills you’ll need to work 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 that interests you.

When you complete your first year, you can apply to register as a Hearing Care Assistant (HCA). This means you can take paid assistant audiology roles for the rest of your degree. It’s also possible to switch to part-time for year 3, so you can spread out your placement over a longer period.
