Our MSc Audiology is widely recognised as the leading postgraduate programme in the UK for the accredited training of audiologists and audiological scientists. It consists of a taught component followed by a substantial research project leading to a dissertation. The MSc Audiology is accredited by the British Academy of Audiology. While not guaranteed, we can usually help UK and EU students find a 40 week unpaid clinical placement in the NHS after the MSc which enables successful students to register as audiologists.
