  • Course description
    Programme

    The aim of this programme is to provide professionals with an enhanced portfolio of skills relevant to their work as audiologists within the context of a developing inter-professional education agenda. Several other cohorts of students also take the modules from a health service background, and inter-professional discussion will be encouraged, to ensure that topics are examined from a range of perspectives.

    The programme will provide a challenging balance between the development of core skills in leadership and management, with the ability to update knowledge in specialist areas of auditory science such as paediatric audiology, vestibular science, auditory rehabilitation and electrophysiology measures, as well as the development of research skills. These culminate in a dissertation on a topic of the student's choosing linked to their specialist area of practice or interest. This will give students the opportunity to advance their knowledge of a particular specialist area pertinent to their work.

    By the end of the programme students will be more knowledgeable and confident in their approach to the problems and issues they encounter in their day-to-day working life.

    Assessment will be via a number of different methods including essays, presentations, and evaluation of published research and poster presentations, as well as a final dissertation.
