Hi all! The absolute lack of males in SLT surprises me (none in my year anyway), and I was wondering why that is.
For you guys out there (and ladies if you've got some insight), is there something putting you off of applying to SLT? Or problems you face as a Male entering or in the course?
Just the same, what motivates you to become a Speech and Language Therapist?

Where do you study (out of curiosity)?

I have come across a few males on the course (and on here) but it is mostly a female dominated course/profession - also attracts a lot of "mature" students.

Agreed - don't think its a commonly understood role with most people though. It's definitely not as common place as nursing, radiography, optometry and other NHS/medical professions.
