Course summary

Speech and language therapy provides vital support and treatment for people who have difficulties with communication. As a qualified SLT you may be involved with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of speech, language, and communication disorders across the lifespan and/or eating and drinking difficulties. You will work with paediatric and adult clients, parents, carers, professionals, and support workers in a range of different environments. On the course, you will explore areas including psychology, linguistics and phonetics, anatomy, physiology and speech and language therapy practice frameworks. You will also consider the biopsychosocial and cultural needs of the client. Our SLT degree will prepare you to meet the academic and clinical standards required for registration as a speech and language therapist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and for membership, as a newly qualified practitioner (NQP) with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. All speech and language therapy students on courses from September 2020 will benefit from guaranteed, additional support of at least £5,000 a year, which they will not need to pay back.
