Our four-year MSpchLangTher Speech and Language Therapy course will prepare you to work as a speech and language therapist who treats, supports and cares for those with communication, eating, drinking or swallowing problems, as well as opening up a path into postgraduate research and/or a research career.
Depending on your performance in Years 1 to 3, you will have the opportunity to extend your studies by a year to undertake an integrated master's. Otherwise, you will earn a BSc in Speech and Language Therapy at the end of Year 3.
You will develop the core theoretical knowledge and specialist clinical skills required by the speech and language therapy profession while learning the academic study skills you need to earn a higher education qualification.
Our course places particular emphasis on scientific thinking, preparing you to incorporate clinical enquiry into your chosen career path. You will gain practical, hands-on experience through placements.
You will be able to register with the Health and Care Professions Council and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists after graduation. MSpchLangTher students will only be able to go into practice after the end of their fourth year.
**Extensive placement experience**
Gain practical experience and team-working skills through three block placements totalling 16 weeks of hands-on work, which we organise for you.
Help promote speech and language therapy as a profession through our Speech and Language Therapy Society, which has been highly commended in the University's annual Making A Difference Awards for social responsibility.
In your final year, you will study a careers-focused course unit to help you prepare for the world of work.
