Learn the skills you need to qualify as a hearing aid audiologist while continuing to work, with this part-time Hearing Aid Audiology degree course at ARU. Understand how to run a safe and successful practice and make a difference to people’s lives. On graduation you can apply to the Health & Care Professions Council for registration as a hearing aid dispenser.
Gain the skills and knowledge you need to work as a hearing aid audiologist, on our distance learning course that's top-rated in the UK for 'Teaching on my course' and 'Assessment and feedback' (National Student Survey 2020).
All our Hearing Aid Audiology degree modules are tailored to audiology, so you will develop your understanding of the physical and psychological basis of hearing and disorders of hearing, and examine their impact on people's life opportunities. You will also develop an awareness of professional, legal and ethical issues in relation to practice, and learn the principles of managing a safe and successful business.
We understand that as a working professional, you cannot always follow a traditional academic year. That is why you will do most of your studying by distance learning, and take part in seminars, lectures and practical laboratory workshops during four residential placements at ARU in Cambridge.
And because you are learning while you work, you will be able to apply everything you learn to your own job, meaning you will get the most out of your new skills immediately – and continue to use them throughout your career.

With our qualification you will be able to work independently as a hearing aid audiologist registered with the Health & Care Professions Council, and take your career to a new level.
When you graduate you can go straight into work or continue your studies to achieve a BSc (Hons) Hearing Sciences degree.
You will be required to complete your clinical logbooks in detail over two years of your studies.
We will assess you throughout the course so that you can track your progress. Assessment methods include work-based assignments, presentations, class discussions and tutorials. As you would expect, we will pay particular attention to feedback from your employer and placement supervisor. We will also ask you to develop action plans and to reflect on your own progress. Practical examinations will be undertaken by the end of each semester. The outcome of these will inform your supervisor of the tasks you may perform in practice under indirect supervision.
