Audiology is a varied discipline, involving elements of biological sciences, engineering, psychology, physics, electronics, speech and language development and research.
Audiology courses at Aston are designed to meet the needs of professional audiologists in both the NHS and independent sectors. Audiologists work in multidisciplinary teams, liaising with patients as well as medical, education, and research professionals. A desire to help people is important and the ageing population means demand for hearing assessment and treatment services is increasing.
This course is part of the Modernising Scientific Careers suite of qualifications and fits within the Neurosensory Sciences strand. It is a 3-year programme, with integrated placements in each year in clinical practice.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will become competent in many areas of audiological practice. This means you will be eligible to apply to register with the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists and the Health & Care Professions Council.
