Course summary

Course description

Our distance learning CPD units are ideally suited for speech and language therapists wishing to further their knowledge of in a specialist field. You should have evidence of higher education study or already be working in the field of speech and language therapy.

If you are a health professional and you are working with one of our specialist populations (eg nurses working with adults with acquired dysphagia), you may be eligible to take one of our courses.

Please contact the postgraduate tutor at if you are unsure whether you are eligible to apply. Please note that our courses are intended for individuals who already have an appropriate professional qualification and do not enable you to register as a speech and language therapist in the UK.

We offer the following units, all of which start in January. Please contact us for more information on each course.

Coursework and assessment

Each unit will involve both summative and formative assessment.

Formative assessment will take place throughout course, and successful completion of a written 3,000-word assignment concludes the course, awarding you 15 credits.

You will receive written feedback within one month of the submission deadline. The assignment task will vary depending on the unit you choose.

Career opportunities

Our CPD units may benefit you if you wish to develop your knowledge and skills in key specialist areas or if you are returning to professional life after a period of leave.

CPD courses in areas of speech and language therapy are available to international candidates who may wish to supplement their training in specialist areas.
