So confused it's either this or audiology. I can only find one degree in clinical physiology

For cardiac physiology, the degree is usually under Healthcare science (Physiological sciences) which is offered at lots of universities e.g. anglia ruskin, middlesex, Southampton, Leeds university, University of west England bristol, Manchester met, Portsmouth, wolverhampton, theres more which offer the cardiac physiology course than that, as you can see theres plenty.

I think Clinical physiology was the old way to get onto the course but now its called Bsc Healthcare science ( usually in the first year you will have to option to specialise in Cardiac physiology, respiratory physiology or sleep physiology)

Both audiologist and cardiac physiologist start on the same band and therefore pay in the NHS starts of the same so its comes down to what you prefer but both are really good careers.
