MSc
Mr Robert Heller
Masters study type: Full time Masters study type: Part time

The highly successful Audiovestibular Medicine MSc offers an up-to-date comprehensive introduction to audiovestibular medicine, and encompasses clinical and research training. Emphasis is placed on the clinical and scientific disciplines underpinning state-of-the art practice in audiovestibular medicine, including genetics, immunology, radiology, ophthalmology, and psychiatry.

What will I learn?
This programme aims to provide students with knowledge of the structure, function and pathology of the hearing and balance mechanisms, and the theoretical background for a scientifically current evidence-based approach in the diagnosis and management of hearing and balance disorders in adults and children. A primary aim of the course is to equip clinicians with the basic knowledge and skills to pursue research in their future careers. The programme provides knowledge which complements clinical skills acquired in neurology, paediatrics, general practice and otorhinolaryngology training.

Why should I study this degree at UCL?
The UCL Ear Institute provides a unique environment for graduate study, and is the largest and most broad-based academic unit for research into hearing and deafness in the UK.

Students benefit from the interdisciplinary range of clinical and research expertise among its staff. Collaboration between disciplines provides integrated research projects encompassing the peripheral structures in the inner ear to the auditory cortex, using a range of model systems from flies to humans.

The associated Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital houses the largest clinical audiology unit in the country, and the first ever Cochlear Implant team in the UK.

Degree Structure

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of eight core modules (120 credits) and a research dissertation (60 credits).
A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months) is offered.
A Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits, full-time three months) is offered.
