About this course

We've changed some parts of this course for the 2020 to 2021 academic year due to coronavirus (COVID-19). These changes may affect how we'll teach you and which modules you'll take.

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 audiology 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 from university to become a audiologist.

Throughout this audiology degree, you’ll attend practical sessions in our dedicated skills laboratory and clinics. You’ll also go on a 27-week clinical placement to support your audiologist training.

You’ll also get to explore in depth an aspect of clinical practice that interests you.

When you complete your first year of BSc audiology, 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.

This programme is recognised by the National School of Healthcare as a Practitioner Training Programme (PTP).

Changes due to COVID-19

Although the COVID-19 situation is improving, any future restrictions could mean we might have to change the way parts of our teaching and learning take place in 2021 to 2022. We're working hard to plan for a number of possible scenarios. This means that some of the information on this course page may be subject to change.
