Speech and Language Therapy

**For students starting this course in September 2018, a new scholarship worth £4,450 is available from City, University of London to those who demonstrate either clinical or academic excellence.** Our graduate-entry courses allow graduates with a first degree from disciplines other than healthcare to gain a pre-registration health qualification in approximately two years as opposed to the usual four - providing a fast-track route into health. The Speech and Language Therapy PG Dip course leads to work in a challenging and varied field - you could be working with autistic children, people who stammer or adults who have lost their speech following a stroke. City's Postgraduate Speech and Language Therapy Diploma has an excellent reputation and is based within the largest, teaching, research and clinical division in the UK for language and communication science. The programme is taught by expert staff who are leaders in the field of speech and language therapy. The innovative and research-informed curriculum is supported by a busy in-house speech and language therapy clinic led by specialist staff and is considered as one of the leading educational environments in the world.

Entry requirements

MSc: Applicants should hold an upper second class honours degree or the equivalent from an international institution. If you don't have a first degree or meet the PG Diploma entry requirements you may be eligible for the BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy. Pre-requisites: While many applicants have a degree in a related subject area, such as linguistics or psychology, this is not a pre-requisite. Students on the course come from a range of academic backgrounds, both in the arts and sciences. Due to the high demand for places on NHS funded courses, as well as meeting the stated academic entry requirements, applicants will be required to attend a selection day held at City University London. You will be asked to complete the NHS Constitution Assessment, which is used to demonstrate that your values match those of the NHS Constitution. For further information, please visit our Selection Day page. For those students whose first language is not English, the following qualification is also required: IELTS: A minimum score of 8.0 with no component below 7.5. Please note that due to changes in the UKVI's list of SELTs we are no longer able to accept TOEFL as evidence of English language for students who require a CAS as of April 2014.
