Course Summary

Our Audiology degree will give you an expert understanding of the science of hearing, balance, and the conditions that affect them. This three-year course combines rigorous academic and theoretical work with the extensive practical clinical experience you need for employment in this growing profession. You will learn to assess hearing capacity and balance function using the latest diagnostic equipment and software applications in our state-of-the-art clinical and research facilities.

You’ll observe clinics in our Health and Wellbeing Academy, gain experience in dispensing hearing aids for the commercial sector and go on to build your skills and confidence in work placements at hospitals across Wales.

Our excellent facilities provide realistic workplace simulations and many of our academic staff in Health Sciences are practising clinicians, providing invaluable professional insight and expertise.

You will also benefit from a real life patient setting in our award winning Health and Wellbeing Academy, an on-site clinic that provides health and wellbeing services for the local community including an audiology clinic in collaboration with the NHS.

The course is accredited by the National School of Healthcare Science and we have very strong links with Welsh health boards, opening up hands-on clinical placement opportunities for you across the country. Meanwhile, the nearest hospital is right next-door to our Singleton Park campus on the edge of the beautiful Gower Peninsula.
