The Course


This three-year course leads to a professional qualification to practice as a speech and language therapist. The course provides an interactive learning experience involving active participation, case based and inquiry based learning and small group teaching with an overall emphasis on integrating theoretical knowledge with clinical expertise. You'll learn from a team of clinical and research specialists including speech and language therapists, psychologists, audiologists, linguists, information technologists and medical practitioners. A key feature of the course is our in-house clinic where you'll benefit from specialist facilities and training. You'll maximise your clinical skills through placements in a diverse range of settings such as schools and hospitals throughout Sheffield and the surrounding areas. Our BMedSci graduates are recognised as qualified speech and language therapists. They go into rewarding careers in paediatrics, children's special needs, adult learning disability and adult neurology. Many go on to postgraduate education and research.
