Course Summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Fast-track to a rewarding career as a speech and language therapist with this pre-registration course and help those with communication or eating and drinking difficulties to enjoy a better quality of life.

Suitable if you have a relevant degree such as psychology, linguistics or English Language, this course will empower you to diagnose speech and language problems in babies, children and adults, and design and deliver life-changing treatment plans for those with cleft palate, stammering, hearing impairments, voice disorders and other conditions.

You will learn through a combination of seminars, lectures and practice-based learning, amassing more than 500 hours of professional experience on placements in various clinical or community settings.

Your masters programme will offer a more critical application of your learning than at undergraduate level, and the chance to engage in an extended project that you could showcase as part of your professional portfolio.

Upon graduation, you will be eligible to apply for HCPC registration as a speech and language therapist. You will have the expertise to work in a multidisciplinary team and provide the best possible care for your clients.

Your studies will draw on academic expertise from a wide range of intertwined disciplines, including linguistics, phonetics, psychology and medical sciences.

You will learn how to build successful therapeutic relationships with your clients, giving them the confidence and empowerment to support their own treatment plans.

We have excellent links with placement providers such as NHS England, and Leeds Teaching Hospitals, one of the biggest Trusts in the UK. Diverse placement settings throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region will enrich and inform your learning experience.

Your teaching team are all practising experts in applied speech and language therapy. Many of them have significant clinical experience and have professional links with the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists, NHS trusts and related private-sector organisations.

You will have access to a specialist interpersonal skills suite and a speech and language therapy resource room, which contains a range of therapeutic and assessment materials to support your learning.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
