Course summary

In this course you will prepare for a career as a qualified speech and language therapist and gain valuable experience of working with patients.

As a Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) student, you will benefit directly from our world-class research into subjects, such as linguistics, language development, language pathology, and bilingualism. You will also be able to take advantage of our in-house speech and language therapy clinic, observational facilities, speech research laboratory and new sound recording room. We are one of the first departments in the UK to host NHS clinics in our purpose-built speech and language therapy facility on site.

The course has recently changed to an undergraduate entry integrated master’s from a BSc degree, and has been approved by the Health Care Professions Council. Once you graduate from the MSci Speech and Language Therapy programme, you can apply for professional registration with the Health and Care Professions Council which will then allow you to work as a speech and language therapist.

The MSci has been identified by our students, local employers and other stakeholders as the best way forward to maintain quality and enjoyment of the programme and to support future employment.

Career

As a graduate of this course you can apply to work as a speech and language therapist. The integrated master’s element of the course develops further your analytical and critical thinking skills preparing you for your career path and provides a unique degree once you graduate. Most of our graduates choose this career path and go on to work within the NHS, education or the independent sector.

In hospitals, Speech and Language Therapists provide services to clients on an in-patient and out-patient basis, with an increasing focus on outreach and intermediate care. They also work in a range of other sites in the community such as health centres, day nurseries, schools and colleges, training centers, and care homes. Some speech and language therapists are employed directly in education, the voluntary sector or work in private practice. Alternatively, you may decide to move into research or postgraduate study.
