A substantial and mandatory component of the MSc in Audiology involves the design and completion of a high quality research project. The research project component represents 33% of the MSc programme (i.e. 600 hours or 4 months full time study).
The project is completed under supervision in an audiologically related area.
The research project is an opportunity for you to consolidate much of your previous learning and to pursue a specialist area of interest that is relevant to your professional life.
