Course Summary

Course overview

  • Develop your knowledge of the structure, function, pathology and assessment of hearing and balance mechanisms.
  • Gain an insight into the clinical environment through a one-week placement in an NHS audiology department or the independent sector.
  • Study at a university ranked 5th in the UK for health subjects (THE World University Rankings 2019).
  • Learn from internationally recognised experts at the Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD).

Course description

Our MSc Audiology course is aimed at science graduates who want to develop their knowledge and understanding of audiology.

The course focuses on the theoretical, practical and clinical basis of the science of audiology, including the identification, assessment, rehabilitation and management of adults and children with audiological and vestibular dysfunction.

Our course includes one short clinical placement in the north-west, in an NHS audiology department or in the independent sector, to help you gain valuable practical experience while you learn.

You will learn from internationally recognised experts at the Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD) while studying on this course.

Aims

This course aims to:

  • offer you a broad and thorough education in the identification, assessment, rehabilitation and management of adults and children with audiological and vestibular dysfunction, with a critical and evaluative understanding of the underlying scientific, medical, public health and disability knowledge base;
  • develop your practical knowledge and skills related to core clinical procedures;
  • further develop your research and critical skills by undertaking a piece of original research and presenting your findings via a research dissertation.

Coursework and assessment

We use a variety of assessments within individual course units and across the course as a whole. All assessments require students to integrate knowledge and understanding, and apply this to your own practice relevant to the outcomes of each unit.

Career opportunities

Graduates of this course have progressed to a PhD, while others have entered a fast-track medicine programme, studied dentistry, entered other health-related professions or gone into work with large hearing aid manufacturers.

Other students have successfully applied for the Scientist Training Programme (STP). This is the training route to become a Healthcare Scientist/Clinical Scientist. Read a blog post by one of our MSc graduates about his experience of both the master's course and STP programme.

The MSc Audiology course may also be beneficial to students from outside the UK who are able to access clinical training in their home country after successful completion of this course at Manchester.

Modules

The unit is designed to provide students with the theoretical knowledge necessary to support clinical skills in the assessment and rehabilitation of adults with vestibular dysfunction.
