Does anyone know if we apply for student finance for this course under the undergraduate 'MSc Speech and Language Therapy pre-registration' listing?

Are you sure the course is undergraduate? Usually MSc courses are postgraduate (unless they specify integrated MSc).

I believe it's because it's a healthcare course and not a typical masters lasting only 1 year... it's a 2 year course (if i pass lol)

Can you link me to the course page? The advice I can give depends on the exact course really. As I say, MSc courses are usually for those studying SLT after completing a first degree.

I was correct, both courses are postgraduate level and require you to have a previous degree in order to apply. You will need to check with Student Finance, as you are definitely entitled to the postgraduate loan, but may be entitled to another round of undergraduate-style funding due to it being a healthcare course.

Hello all,
I’m hoping to apply for the Speech and language masters course for 2022 as I suffer from dysphagia and would like to help children who also have this.

I’m currently working full time in admin and want to save some money and improve my confidence before I head back into education.

I did an undergraduate degree in BSc Human nutrition & graduated in 2019 with a 2.1

I’m thinking to apply to UCL and City, but I’m not sure if any other London universities also provide a masters in the course?

Can anyone let me know what sort of work experience I need for the course?

Here an outline of some experience I have from my undergraduate:

Worked in a clinical feeding unit in a children’s hospital for more than a year, (making feeds for children who are chronically ill & some cannot swallow solid foods)

Worked in an adult hospital for 3 months to sort out allergens matrix and sorted recipes for adults on special diets.

Work experience in a primary school for a week as a teaching assistant.

I plan to shadow a speech and language therapist for a day

And to also gain a week of work experience in a special needs school (hopefully when schools open again).

Can anyone recommend how I can make application stand out for the future and if I need any more experience?
