Student Profile

Beatrice Manduchi

I chose to attend this course because it is a unique opportunity for Speech and Language Therapists to specialise in research, while pursuing a specialist area of interest. This course is unique in Europe and Graduates from the M.Sc. are highly regarded by national and international Universities and employers. Through this course, I gained research experience and clinical expertise at the same time. I had the opportunity to work closely to research team of the Department of Clinical Speech and Language Studies and its worldwide-known experts in Speech and Language Pathology. At the same time, I developed specialised professional skills, while attending clinics and working alongside Speech and Language Therapists in my specialist area (dysphagia).

Through the Master, I created strong links with the institutes where I carried out my clinical placements, with teachers, professors, national and international researchers and I had the opportunity to present my research to international conferences.

I would recommend this course to any Speech and Language Therapist who wants to pursue a career in research and academia. This Master has been fundamental for the development of my career both as a researcher and professional. The course provides its students with a high specialisation in the field of Speech and Language Therapy which is globally recognised, and it opens wide range of employment opportunities to its graduates.

What’s make this course unique is the support and guidance provided by the supervisors and professors of the M.Sc. The teaching staff and research team of the Department personally follow the student along the entire course of the year, engage in one-to-one discussions, encourage professional reflections, offer individual teaching sessions and clinical demonstrations. Many opportunities of self-learning development are given to the student along the year, for example the numerous conferences and seminars organised directly from the Department and the School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences.

As a Trinity student, you feel part of a community, where you are never left alone. Over the course of the year, I enjoyed many extra-curricular activities, met people from different cultures and took part to student support groups. The course offered me a wide range of opportunities, and I am currently employed full-time in Ireland thanks to the high-specialisation that now I hold with my M.Sc.
