Course Summary

Our PhD Communication Disorders programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Communication Disorders. Communication disorders research is based in the world leading Division of Human Communication, Development and Hearing (HCHD) providing an exciting and rewarding experience. We have particular research strengths in the areas of developmental language disorders (DLD) and social communication and pragmatics intervention , as well as further interests and collaborations on associated factors such as literacy and memory as well as bilingualism.

The project will usually be outlined by an applicant seeking to work within a particular research area with a focused plan of research in mind, usually shared and discussed with the potential main supervisor. Alternatively, the project will be part of a research programme and such projects are usually outlined by the academic supervisor offering the study. Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
