Study speech and language therapy (SLT) and learn how to make an impact on the estimated 2.5 million people in the UK who have a variety of needs in relation to speech, language, communication and/or swallowing. Speech and language therapy aims to maximise people’s communication potential and improve their quality of life. Working in an inter-professional environment, qualified SLTs assess, diagnose and provide intervention to people of all ages who have these kinds of difficulties. Our three-year course was the first speech and language therapy degree in the UK to fully integrate the clinical and theoretical aspects of the discipline through a problem-based learning curriculum. This means that all the teaching you receive on this course reflects up-to-date, real-world practice, ensuring you graduate with all the skills necessary to begin your career as a therapist. In line with the wider profession, we promote evidence-based practice throughout your three years of study. You will study a wide range of core subjects and learn to apply this knowledge in clinical practice. You will start as a ‘Conversation Partner’ in the first year, learning about your own communication skills. In your second year you will move to the role of ‘Therapy Facilitator’, as you begin to apply your knowledge and skills in planning intervention. In your final year you will move into the pre-registration phase and take increasing responsibility for working with clients.Please note this course is not open to international applicants.
