This course aims to provide you with the skills and knowledge to prevent hearing, tinnitus and balance disorders, and to assess and treat people who have hearing, tinnitus and balance disorders. The course combines pre-clinical and clinical study, integrating theory and practice. Demand for audiologists is expected to increase significantly over coming years due to a numbers of factors including: the ageing population, improved and compulsory screening of infants for hearing loss, improved technology and increased consumer demand for diagnostic and rehabilitative audiological services. Students will be required to complete a minimum of 250 active hours of professional practice placements, throughout the course, to achieve the required clinical competencies. The course requires the completion of 240 credit points over two years of full-time study.
