Course summary

Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs) are health professionals who work closely with parents, carers, teachers, nurses, doctors and other Allied Health professionals. Almost one in five people experience communication difficulties and this is where SLTs can help. On completion of the course, you’ll be eligible to apply to the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to register as a Speech and Language Therapist (SLT). You will provide life-changing support and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communication, eating, drinking or swallowing. Young people with communication difficulties can find school hard and are more likely to end up in the criminal justice system, and SLTs are aiming to change that through early intervention.You will have the opportunity to graduate with practical competencies in dysphagia (eating, drinking and swallowing disorders) to Level C of the RCSLT framework. This makes our graduates extremely attractive to employers.The SLT course is academically demanding and covers a broad curriculum to allow you to register for professional practice. You will learn core skills in topics such as linguistics, phonetics and speech and language pathology. You will also develop your clinical and professional skills through practical placements and modules that cover counselling and professional skills.**Why this course at Marjon?**• Ability to graduate ready to work with patients who have swallowing difficulties, as required by the NHS.• Only pre-registration SLT course in the South West of England.• On-site clinic with voice analysis equipment, a fully equipped speech science lab and SLT resource room full of clinical tools to develop your hands-on experience.• Extensive clinical placement experience across a range of settings including hospitals, schools and clinics.**What might I become?**This degree is designed to help you launch a successful career as a Speech and Language Therapist.
