Course description

This course leads to a professional qualification to practice as a speech and language therapist. This enables the individual to work in a diverse range of settings and roles, from schools and hospitals to higher education and research.

The course is approved by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the Health and Care Professions Council.

What will you learn?

You will investigate a range of subjects, including biomedical sciences, psychology, linguistics, communication and research methods. You will learn how to assess and manage a range of communication and swallowing disorders. Your skills will be put into practice through a series of clinical placements throughout the course. We’re one of only a few departments of our kind to run an in-house clinic. So as an MMedSci student at Sheffield, you’ll benefit from specialist facilities and training.

To maximise your clinical skills, you’ll go on placements in our clinic and in settings throughout Sheffield and surrounding areas.

Teaching

The course provides an interactive learning experience involving active participation, case-based and inquiry-based learning and small group teaching with an overall emphasis on integrating theoretical knowledge with clinical expertise. Some practical teaching takes place in the University’s human pathology laboratories.

You will learn from a team of clinical and research specialists including speech and language therapists, psychologists, audiologists, linguists, information technologists, and medical practitioners. Throughout the course, you will be working closely with your peers and tutors in a supportive environment.

Assessment

Assessment of your knowledge and skills uses a variety of methods. These include exams, coursework and evaluation of clinical work. Your dissertation comprises a research-based systematic review of a clinically relevant topic in the second year of the programme.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it’s up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or students numbers. In the event of any change we will consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
