We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Audiology involved advanced study of the anatomy and physiology of the human hearing organs.
Related subjects include Clinical Audiology and Speech Sciences. Entry requirements typically include a relevant undergraduate degree such as Medicine, Biology, or Speech and Language Therapy.
Audiologists deal with a range of disorders related to hearing and balance. Training usually includes methods for determining an individual’s hearing range – high, middle or low frequencies – and understanding the anatomy of the ear. Some students specialise in dealing with particular parts of the ear (outer ear, middle ear, inner ear), or the auditory nerve and central nervous system.
You might wish to become a specialist in one of the number of tests that you will be trained to carry out. This could include measuring otoacoustic emission (such as tinnitus), and developing means to prevent or reduce their effects. Or, you might focus your studies in videonystagmography (VGN) – also known as vestibular assessment – testing inner ear motor functions to determine causes of dizziness.
As an audiologist, you are likely to work within a health centre, assessing patients for hearing aids and candidacy for cochlear implants. You might also branch into charity work or other NGOs.

The Audiological Science with Clinical Practice MSc is designed to train students from other disciplines as audiologists.
Our world-leading MSc Audiology courses, underpinned by our pioneering research, enable both experienced clinicians and recent science/engineering graduates to accelerate their careers.
Develop your knowledge of the structure, function, pathology and assessment of hearing and balance mechanisms. Gain valuable clinical experience through two one-week placements in NHS audiology departments and the independent sector.
For almost 50 years, the School's M.Sc. program has provided students with an education that is grounded in the basic and applied sciences, can address complex communication problems within an interdisciplinary framework, and understand the relevance of theory in research as well as in clinical practice.
This course provides a fast-track route to an audiology qualification for individuals who hold a degree (or equivalent) in a related discipline (linguistics, psychology, physics, behavioural science, biomedical science, speech and language therapy or some combination of these).
The aim of this module is to develop your understanding of the specialism of paediatric audiology. This module includes problem-based learning, and will also provide you with learning opportunities in a range of generic skills relevant to clinical scientists.
This module on research methods and statistics, particularly relevant to social and healthcare sciences, intends to help students become informed recipients of research evidence and able to understand its application to practice.
