I am planning to apply for courses in speech and language therapy once I've finished my PhD. I have relevant skills and experience (I've been a support worker on an inpatient dementia ward, a teaching and care assistant in a residential special needs school, a SaLT assistant with adults with learning disabilities, and my PhD is related) and I think I'd be in with a good shot at getting a place on the postgraduate training course. My one concern is this...how do they manage to condense three or four years of undergraduate learning into a two-year MSc? I'm aware that all SLTs have to meet the same standards to gain HCPC registration, but I'm worried that the course content on the MSc may be rushed. Can anyone who has or is currently studying SLT shed some light on this?
