Course summary

Course description

Our MSc Advanced Audiology Studies course is aimed at practising audiologists who want to prepare for advanced roles in clinical management, clinical practice, teaching and research.

The course consists of a mixture of audiology-specific units and those shared with health professionals from a range of other disciplines, enabling you to tailor the course to your own interests.

You will learn from internationally recognised experts at the Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD).

You may choose to complete 60 credits for a PGCert (exit award) or 120 credits for a PGDip. If your application onto the programme is successful, it is important you contact the programme team as soon as possible to discuss the units you wish to study, so an individualised timetable can be arranged.

On successful completion of 120 credits, progression to the full MSc qualification allows you to explore, in depth, a specific aspect of audiology practice, policy, research or education in a 60-credit, 12,000 to 15,000-word dissertation.

Aims

Our course aims to:

  • enable you to critically evaluate and apply aspects of contemporary audiology and healthcare practice, policy, research and education;
  • foster positive values and attitudes that recognise and respect individual and cultural diversities and challenge discriminatory practice;
  • equip you with in-depth knowledge, understanding and skills to critically evaluate research and the evidence base for audiology practice that promotes optimal health and involves service users and carers in the delivery of care;
  • develop your abilities and skills in critical reflective practice, problem solving and creative ethical decision-making;
  • contribute to innovation, change and quality improvement in audiology and healthcare practice at both individual and organisational levels by equipping you with a systematic and critical understanding of relevant knowledge, theoretical frameworks and advanced skills;
  • enhance your career development and lifelong learning to support safe practice and the maintenance and enhancement of appropriate standards of audiology practice.

Additional aims for the MSc are to enable you, through the systematic, in-depth, exploration of a specific area of audiology practice, policy, research or education to extend your knowledge, understanding and ability to contribute to the advancement of audiology knowledge and practice at an individual and/or organisational level.

Career opportunities

Our course will prepare you to enter roles in clinical management and practice in audiology, as well as teaching and research.
