Speech and Language Therapy, PGDip
The programme offered by the University of Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church University is practice-centred. The content is applied closely to the practice of speech and language therapy.
The programme gives students a detailed understanding of the changes that occur and difficulties that can arise for the individual who seeks the help of a speech and language therapist.
Speech and language therapists work in hospital wards and outpatient departments, mainstream and special schools, day centres and in clients' homes, courtrooms, prisons and young offenders institutions. Practice placements are organised to give experience of a number of these settings.
