About this course

Study our full-time 2 year audiology master’s with clinical placement and combine scientific learning with practical training. Our 3 year course offers a part-time clinical placement over 2 years. 

Gain the skills to work in clinical audiology. UK applicants who complete the course are eligible to register with The Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP) and to work in the NHS as an audiologist. Our graduates from this degree have become leaders in the field both in the UK and abroad.

If you’re new to audiology or are a qualified health professional who wants to take their career further, this master’s degree offers a great way to develop your skills. Through a mixture of theory and practical work – including clinical placements in the UK, Ireland and Jersey – you'll gain insight and expertise to specialise in the field of audiology.  
All placement centres are approved and accredited by the University of Southampton and include a mixture of NHS and private clinics.   

When you graduate, you'll be eligible to apply for our stand-alone Hearing Aid Aptitude Test as a route towards registering as a Hearing Aid Dispenser. EU and international applicants should refer to the HCPC guidance for international applicants

A number of the MSc modules are approved as part of the higher training scheme of the British Academy of Audiology. Visit the BAA Higher Training scheme modules for more information.
