You'll learn how to run a safe and successful practice and make a real difference to people's lives with your excellent assessment, analysis and communication skills. You'll develop your understanding of the physical and psychological basis of hearing and disorders of hearing, and an awareness of professional, legal and ethical issues in relation to practice.

  • Semester 1: 3 residential weeks

  • Semester 3: 2 residential weeks
  • Semester 4: 3 residential weeks

By studying while you work, you'll have the opportunity to apply your new knowledge and skills to your own job as you progress with the course, and continue to practice them throughout your career.
