Most speech and language therapist graduates become employed by the NHS to work in hospitals, clinics, paediatric assessment centres, adult rehabilitation centres or in the community.

Speech and language therapists usually work as part of a multidisciplinary team, alongside other health professionals such as doctors, nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

Once you qualify, you can specialise in a particular area of speech and language therapy.

If you wish to work with language-disordered children in a classroom setting, you may want to take a one-year teaching qualification (PGCE) after your degree.
