You will have around 30 hours of contact time per week when studying to become an Audiologist. The syllabus is delivered via a combination of lectures, small group work and practical classes. You will also get the opportunity to attend clinical work placements to help you put your theory into real-life practice.
Learning is assessed via a variety of methods throughout the three years of study. You will complete written examinations, written assignments, presentations, case-based discussions and assessments of clinical competency. In year three, you will have the chance to complete a research project in your chosen healthcare science programme. The results of this will be presented as part of your dissertation and you will be involved in a peer-assessment scientific poster presentation.
Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, this course will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. This means that some teaching will be done online and some will be on campus. The online teaching, where you will be physically apart from your lecturer, can be ‘live’ with your lecturer present and where you’ll be able to interact. Some of it may be self-directed which means that you can access the learning materials at a time to suit you.
Your face-to-face, on campus sessions will be a mixture of:
- Skills and practical sessions
- OSCE assessment
- Individual Practice Educator sessions
- Clinical Practice Assessments
- Clinician-led workshops
Your online learning and teaching may include
- Revision sessions
- Continuous Assessment
- Q&A time
- On-demand e-lectures
- Self-paced module content
This course offers some modules taught through the medium of
