The course is delivered over two semesters and takes nine months to complete. It is delivered by specialist tutors under the guidance of the Department of Vision and Hearing Sciences through our Virtual learning environment.
Your course will be based around your work and so some of your learning will take place during your normal work duties. Participation in online activities is highly recommended and encouraged in order that you benefit from enhanced peer learning.
There will also be the need to commit private time for studying. It is estimated that on average you will need to spend the equivalent of approximately 5 (five) self-directed hours on your studies.
You will be assessed on a module-by-module basis in the form of multiple-choice examinations, together with a portfolio based continuous assessment of practical competencies.
The final assessment for the practical skills required to complete the module “Practical procedures for the Hearing Care Assistant” will involve an exam and a practical assessment which will take place on our Cambridge campus. This will require an overnight stay.
The course is approved by the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists and enables direct access to the Foundation Degree, which leads to registration as a Hearing Aid Dispenser with the HCPC.
