Speech and Language Therapy - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** Train for a degree in Speech and Language Therapy and open up a world of opportunities. It is estimated that over 2.5 million people in the UK alone have a communication disorder. So a Speech and Language Therapist’s scope of work is incredibly broad. You could work with people of any age and from any background: anyone who experiences difficulties with communication and swallowing. It’s rewarding work, too. On our degree course you’ll gain the skills you need to guide and advise people as they manage their individual challenges and how to support their families and other health and education professionals. You’ll have a positive effect on their everyday lives, helping them not only overcome their difficulties but also to reveal their personal strengths and fulfil their potential. Our course is fully approved by and prepares you for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT). **Overview** On our Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) degree course you’ll study aspects of human biology, linguistics (the study of language), phonetics (the study of speech sounds) and psychology. You’ll also gain research skills and discover theories of SLT interventions and practice. From the beginning of this three-year programme you’ll discover how these core academic areas relate to a wide range of client groups, including children with developmental speech and language disorders, individuals with learning disabilities, and adults with acquired communication and swallowing difficulties. These client groups form the basis for your modules. Throughout the course you’ll use Problem-Based Learning (PBL) to develop skills such as team working, negotiating and leadership. You’ll also use group learning to expand your knowledge of SLT practice. You’ll then take your learning beyond the classroom with practice placements. Here you’ll have the opportunity to develop your therapeutic practice with real-life clients, working alongside qualified therapists. Practice education features throughout the course, ensuring you have the clinical and core skills you’ll need for real working environments. Taught within the School of Health Sciences, Speech and Language Therapy at UEA reflects our multidisciplinary ethos. That ethos has been developed and nurtured as a reflection of the real-life practices of working healthcare professionals. As such, you’ll undertake shared modules with Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy students and spend some of your time studying alongside students from other health professions, as well from other UEA Schools including Medicine and Education. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
