This accredited degree uses innovative teaching, state-of-the-art facilities, and high levels of clinical work to prepare you for a career as a speech and language therapist.

Course overview

This three-year Speech and Language Therapy degree will provide you with the thorough knowledge, experience and understanding you need to undertake speech and language therapy practice.

Through case-based teaching, you will read and discuss complex, real-life scenarios to develop your problem-solving and decision-making skills.

You will study core modules in speech and language pathology. These include causes, diagnosis, assessment and treatment of a range of speech, language, communication and swallowing disorders in adults and children.

Clinical experience during every year of the course will allow you to put this theory into practice, providing you with a scientifically orientated, and theoretical understanding of speech and language therapy. You'll graduate a confident, competent and highly skilled speech and language therapist.
