Course summary

Approved by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the Health and Care Professions Council, this course allows you to work in a diverse range of settings and roles as a speech and language therapist.

Course description

This course leads to a professional qualification to practise as a speech and language therapist. You’ll be able to work in a diverse range of settings, for example schools and hospitals, nurseries, clinics or the client’s home. You might also pursue a role in higher education and research.

Speech and language therapists provide treatment and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communicating, eating, drinking or swallowing. Therapists take a collaborative approach, working alongside the individual’s carer, teacher or family, as well as other professionals.

The course follows six main themes:

Communication – linguistics, psychology and how this relates to speech and language pathology.
Participation and Society – how the study of sociology and social and health psychology impact on speech and language therapy.
Research Methods – develop the research skills essential to providing evidence-based health care.
Biomedical Sciences – anatomy, physiology, audiology and neurology, and how to link them to speech and language pathology.
Key Clinical Topics – develop your professional competence.
Professional Practice – put your skills to work for a range of clients with communication impairments.

What will you learn?

You’ll investigate a range of subjects, including biomedical sciences, psychology, linguistics, communication and research methods. You’ll learn how to assess and manage a range of communication and swallowing disorders.

Your skills will be put into practice through a series of clinical placements throughout the course.

We’re one of only a few departments of our kind to run an in-house clinic. So as an MMedSci student at Sheffield, you’ll benefit from specialist facilities and training. To maximise your clinical skills, you’ll go on placements in our clinic and in settings throughout Sheffield and surrounding areas.

Assessment

We use a variety of methods, including exams, coursework and evaluation of clinical work.

In your second year, you complete a dissertation which comprises a systematic review and project proposal relating to a clinically relevant topic.
