|Speech and language therapy leads to a wide range of career opportunities. The study of it also brings together a wide range of subjects. Subjects as diverse as human biology, linguistics (the study of language), phonetics (the study of speech sounds) and psychology. With a combination of research, theory and practice, our course covers all areas of therapy intervention and practice. Our three-year course is structured into modules, introducing you to the various client groups that you might typically expect to encounter as a therapist. These include children with developmental and speech disorders, people with learning disabilities, and adults with acquired communication and swallowing difficulties.
As a student within the School of Health Sciences, you’ll work alongside other healthcare professionals, including occupational therapists and physiotherapists, just as you will in the workforce. Studying in groups with other students will help you develop the teamwork, negotiation and leadership skills you’ll need to apply in your practice. Beyond the classroom, you’ll gain work experience on a variety placements throughout the course, allowing you to put the theory you’ve learned into active practice. Plus, you’ll get to work with real-life clients and alongside professional therapists.
