    Hello! I've moved this into the careers forum now, you should get more replies here. Good luck with your placement!

    You could see if the universities you are applying to arrange open days at places with audiologists. This is just an idea as I am applying for radiography and I have booked onto clinical open days organised by a university because I found it hard to find a placement too.

    I was in the same position as however, after ringing all the hearing aid shops and specsavers I got a place.

    Only one specsavers shop said yes the rest apparently don't do it! Also , got a place to shadow a hospital audiologist dunno whether to go or not

    I haven't got a placement/showing opportunity yet unfortunately. I'm trying to look for one but it's proving to be very difficult

    What made you choose this course?
    I've probably considered every single course under the sun related to healthcare professions, but I find Audiology to be the most unique and frankly the only course I liked from visiting the open days. I just found it super interesting. Also it's a growing profession and the need for audiologists in the future should (soon) be HUGE.
    and you?

    Lol! I'm the same! I checked through ALL the healthcare professions and science related degrees. After narrowing down the courses i'm down to Audiology and Dietetics. Unfortunately, there are a lack of jobs, plus we can't estimate what job will be in demand in 3/4 years time. Therefore, my aim is to shadow an Audiologist and a Hospital Dietician (again). If i enjoy both i'll try to link both in! If that's not possible then i'll have to choose one.

    I use to consider Speech and language therapy but that's not for me. Likewise, i considered Biomedical science and Biochemistry but their lab based .

    I've only got 6 weeks left till my Ucas College deadline! I need to get a move on.

    I considered optometry/biomed/biochem etc. but they're all just meh. Let me know how shadowing the audiologist goes, it's quite fascinating.
    I then narrowed my options down to paediatric science, radiology and audiology.
    Right now i think i'm swaying towards audiology

    I use to consider, Primary education, pharmacy,optometry, biosciences
    Then
    Primary education, secondary education
    Then
    Speech lang therapy, Audiology, Radiography and Dietetics

    Now i've decided it's either Audiology / Dietetics or even both if possible! I'm also ganna apply for Biomedical science and Biochem for backup

    They only take images of the insides of the Human body via X ray etc. They can't really annotate it. I find that very boring.

    Plus even tho u are safe from Xrays i don't wanna take a risk especially, since i've got skin problems.

    Along with the same reasons you said and plus the university that's the closest to me that offers the course, isn't very good.
