    I'm a student.. to be honest I'm not sure.. maybe with the aqp.. yes in private you'd probably be earning 30+ I met an audiologist from amplifon earning 40+ so it's all about how well you sell I guess. Hope that helps
    Hi, do you know if there's a good pension, like there is in teaching?

    The exam is straight after university after you graduate, not a year extra just a month or two, some companies like Specksavers do pay for the private exam and then train you up.

    Don't worry it's great to have advice from someone in Audiology, as there aren't many out there

    bibliboo No problem, I know Audiology students are quite difficult to find... We seem to hide quite well.

    Which university do you want to go to? The hiding places are probably placement for us guys.. placement takes over your life as a Audiology student!

    Either Leeds or Manchester, they seem nearest for me, don't fancy living away from my wife and kids.

    I would suggest Leeds, but if Manchester is closer to you then that is understandable.. With Leeds you can sort of choose where you want to be for placement which would be better for you as a farther as you can choose somewhere closer to home so you can spend more time with the children and the wife. Leeds takes lots of things into account and doesn't just fling you where they please.

    Hey guys,

    I have got unconditional offer for BSc Healthcare Science (Audiology) at Leeds and an offer for MSc Audiology at Manchester (as I have already done a science degree). Now I am quite confused. MSc audiology does not guarantee any clinical placement after completion, which is necessary to register as an audiologist.

    Can Audio 123 or anybody else guide me, which way should I go?

    I am not clear about career path after MSc audiology, as well.

    Any proper guidance would be much appreciated.

    My confusion is that since you already did a science degree why not apply for stp in audiology?

    To be honest, never knew or thought about that.

    I have checked it now and am not clear whether they would consider my degree as a relevant for STP in audiology.

    Hello I want to know if there is reading list

    ??
    (Original post by mammacita)
    If all else fails i would take the risk of like rejecting everyfn u have offers for and den see if there is space thru clearing to gain entry

    I do know at speaksavers its a fixed salary of 21000 (the same as nhs) plus the bonus depending on how much you sell... at Amplifon its also fixed around 20000 plus the bonus.. at boots I believe it's about 18000 plus quite a big bonus per hearing aid you sell... you've got to also consider that all the companies take their cut too and give you may be around 15-20% of the sale. .. I hope that helps

    Hi Alumna,

    I read your previous post which is not on this page now.

    Thanks for your guidance. I would definitely contact them about STP (may be in neuroscience)

    I am making up my mind to leave MSc and pursue BSc Honours now

    Hi Afrasco,

    The stp programme is incredibly competitive to get onto and is short for scientist training programme although it is a paid masters I would recommend the bsc if you would like a guaranted placement and a job at the end of the 3 years its a great training degree and sure does provide you with all the experience you will require to finally register as a qualified audiologist.

    I hope this helps and I'm so sorry for the late reply I've been incredibly busy on placement

    Hi Audio 123


    Thanks for your neutral and comprehensive advice. To be honest, I was waiting to hear from you, but never mind.


    In the meantime, I have also got confirm offer for BSc from Univ of Manchester, so now probably would finalize it as I live in Manchester.
