The Course


This course equips you to make a real difference to the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds living with communication and swallowing difficulties. Combining academic study and clinical practice, this accelerated three-year course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and prepares you for HCPC registration. It’s ranked 6th for Aural and Oral Sciences (Complete University Guide, 2018). Our extended academic years enable you to cover all the essential components of Speech and Language Therapy a year earlier than many similar programmes. Our Conversation Partners programme gives you the chance to engage with clients in the community, developing your own communication skills and reflective practice and preparing you for clinical practice. Giving you a solid foundation in speech and language therapy, modules are structured around clinical areas such as developmental speech and language disorders, and communication difficulties acquired in adulthood. You will use problem-based learning to make connections between clinical practice and the core academic disciplines of human biology, psychology, linguistics and phonetics.

As part of the School of Health Sciences, we offer opportunities to develop relationships and clinical practice in a multi-professional environment with students from other allied health professions, nursing, medicine and education. Our teaching team includes practising SLT clinicians and those with extensive research portfolios, who offer evidence-based expertise in the latest clinical practices. We work closely with a team of service users whose personal experiences link classroom-based learning with real-life clinical practice. The structure of the course is based on independent and collaborative learning: You will develop your skills by managing your own learning, integrating private study with classroom-based teaching, and applying your knowledge to real cases and clinical scenarios. Students work together in teams, developing the confidence and ability to question, share ideas, discuss and problem solve – essential skills for a successful speech and language therapist. Assessment is via coursework, including a final-year team research project which often leads to co-authorship of research articles. The values of the NHS Constitution will be explored at interview, with successful candidates demonstrating how these are reflected in their own beliefs.
