Audiology is the clinical science involving the prevention, assessment and rehabilitation of hearing loss and associated communication disorders. The Clinical Audiology course commences in January, with a new intake of students in even-numbered years only. It is an intensive full-time course with tuition divided between intensive theoretical and practical modules and clinical placements. The intensive modules require full-time attendance, equivalent to 40 hours per week, over their whole duration which is usually seven weeks. Clinical placements are managed by the Clinical Coordinator.
The first year provides the basic scientific background for audiology and introductory clinical practice. The second year offers comprehensive training in advanced audiological applications in addition to a research project.
