Course summary

Programme description

Our PhD/MPhil Audiology programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Audiology.

Postgraduate research study within audiology is a challenging and rewarding experience. Our audiology research is based within the Division for Human Communication, Development and Hearing in the internationally recognised Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD). ManCAD is the UK leader for basic, translational and applied research in audiology and deafness that has a significant impact upon service delivery in the UK and abroad (e.g. the NHS newborn hearing screening programme, digital signal-processing hearing aids and the modernisation of NHS hearing aid services).

ManCAD hosts the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre 's Hearing Health theme . Our partners at the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) have a multidisciplinary team with a world-leading reputation in the discovery and delivery of research that leads to improved clinical outcomes.

The centre's research programme spans prevention, diagnosis, and treatment from birth to older ages. Their research programme will improve the lives of children and adults by preventing potentially devastating congenital deafness, diagnosing acquired age-related deficits, identifying and tackling inequalities and developing new treatments.

A uniquely wide scope of expertise includes audiology, hearing science, otolaryngology, engineering and signal processing, biomaterials, auditory genetics, health psychology, health informatics, biomarkers, child development and communication. In addition to the world-leading reputation in research and impact, Manchester is the home of audiology education and training in the UK, and has a distinguished track record in service provision and service development.

Manchester BRC is supported by outstanding bespoke Clinical Research Facilities and will establish the UK's only Hearing Device Research Centre and consultancy service for translational and applied research.
