Subject

Audiology

Audiology is the science of hearing and balance and their associated disorders. It’s a varied and expanding discipline, involving aspects of biological sciences, psychology, physics and electronics, speech and language development and social science.

As an audiologist you will be involved in the diagnosis of and rehabilitation of patients, allowing you to develop relationships with your patients and see the benefits they get from your care. Audiologists must be able to communicate with people of all ages and combine logical thinking and a scientific approach with a caring and patient-focused attitude.

We offer excellent clinical placement experiences across our region which provide opportunities for you to experience the varied work of an audiologist.

The course has a 93% satisfaction rate and an excellent employability record. 100% of our Audiology students are in work and/or studying six months following graduation.

You will be taught by experienced qualified professionals and being part of the School of Medicine strengthens our link between academic expertise and world-leading research.
