Speech and Language Therapy at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

Speech and language therapists are trained to assess, diagnose and treat children and adults who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing. They can specialise in areas such as stroke, brain injury, learning disability, speech sounds disorders or autism. Our three year Speech and Language Therapy degree will give you the knowledge, clinical skills and confidence needed to make a difference in people’s lives. What you'll study Our course is taught by expert clinicians and researchers. You’ll study linguistics, psychology and speech pathology, as well as the medical knowledge that underpins these areas. You will explore how sociology and social psychology impact on speech and language therapy. You will also develop valuable research skills that are essential to providing evidence-based healthcare. We use a case-based approach to learning, which means you’ll apply everything you have learnt back to hypothetical or real-life clinical scenarios, to prepare you for future practice as a speech and language therapist. You will be taught the clinical skills and knowledge required to support individuals with a range of communication and/or eating, drinking and swallowing needs. As part of this learning, you will complete pre-registration eating, drinking and swallowing competencies. Gain clinical experience During your studies, you will use our specialist, in-house speech and language therapy clinic. Having an on-site clinic gives you the chance to gain practical experience during your studies and work directly with people who have communication or swallowing difficulties. You will also go on placements in a diverse range of settings throughout Sheffield and the surrounding areas, including schools and hospitals, to put your learning into practice. Fully accredited course The course is approved and accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. After successfully completing the course, you can go on to apply to the HCPC as a speech and language therapist. Alternatively, if you are a graduate we offer an MMedSci in Speech and Language Therapy, which also leads to registration with the HCPC so you can work as a speech and language therapist. The course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and its curriculum is informed by the QAA benchmarks for speech and language therapy, the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) curriculum guidelines and subsequent HCPC standards of proficiency and standards of education and training for speech and language therapists. The HCPC and the RCSLT approve and accredit the programme.
