Speech and Language Therapy

Speech and language therapists (SLT) are privileged to work with people throughout their entire lifespan - from neonatal to end-of-life care. This course will enable you to qualify as an SLT in three years. As an SLT, you will provide assessments and interventions for communication impairments and difficulties with eating, drinking and swallowing. You will study a variety of subjects such as psychology, linguistics and speech pathology, and attend guest lectures from specialist clinicians and medics to expand your professional networks and to ensure your learning is current. **PLACEMENTS** We adopt a mixed placement model, which means you will undertake 'ongoing' and 'block' placements during your studies. In Year One there will be one half-day placement per week for seven weeks in both semesters. During Years Two and Three you will undertake ongoing day placements once a week in semester 1, and block placements where you will spend either five or six weeks on placement in semester 2. For the Year Three block placement, we aim to place you in a clinical area of your preference. You will be required to travel to placements independently, and they will be located across Yorkshire and the Humber. During your studies you will experience a variety of clinical areas that will enrich your learning experience and expertise.
