You could work with people of any age and from any background, supporting individuals and their families living with communication and/or swallowing needs. Your course will interweave the disciplines of linguistics and phonetics, psychology, and anatomy and physiology in a wide-ranging exploration of SLT research and practice, including your completion of Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) pre-registration eating, drinking and swallowing competencies. Through our established and innovative hybrid Problem-Based Learning curriculum, our dedicated teaching team will support you to develop and apply your knowledge and skills, drawing on in-house clinical expertise and phonetics/psychology/linguistics subject specialists, supported by local clinicians and service users. Our curriculum facilitates your development of independent and collaborative working skills to thrive within the profession. In group learning sessions, you’ll investigate materials such as videos and case notes to generate questions which you’ll then research, discuss, integrate, and apply. Through our blend of conversation partner and clinical block placements, you’ll gain the skills and experience to become well-rounded clinicians. You’ll benefit from our dedicated Clinical Skills Area, housing specialist resources including an extensive library of tools for assessment and intervention. You may also have placements through our in-house Hub, supported by our clinical staff. Demand for Speech & Language Therapists remains strong. After graduation, you might progress into any number of careers with employers in the NHS, private clinics, education, the non-profit sector or the justice system.
