Our three-year BSc Healthcare Science (Audiology) course offers practitioner-level training and a qualification accredited by the HCPC, RCCP and AHCS, allowing you to work within both the NHS and the independent sector. You will study the theoretical, practical and clinical aspects of audiology that are needed to practice as an audiologist and hearing aid dispenser. The course includes topics and placements in closely related healthcare science areas such as neurophysiology and vision sciences in Year 1. In Year 2, you will learn about inter-professional practice in group workshops with nursing, midwifery, pharmacy and dentistry students. Studying alongside other healthcare professionals will equip you to be a 21st century health practitioner working in diverse multidisciplinary teams. In addition to learning degree-level skills and core audiology academic content. you will have 50 weeks of practical clinical training. Practical training is included in all three years of the course, with substantial practical skills training taking place in our Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD) laboratories. Throughout this course, you will use the skills you develop to assess and treat patients in clinics offering a range of audiology services, while under expert supervision. This is undertaken in independent sector training placements in Years 1 and 2 and NHS training placements in all years.
