All modules are compulsory.
Each year of the programme includes a clinical placement. These take place in a wide range of settings and areas eg hospitals, schools, clinics. During placement you will be supervised by a SLT who will help you integrate the theory you have learned at university with practical work with clients. The final semester of the programme includes a long placement during which you will be fully immersed in your clinical practice and will not have to attend university. This provides a very successful bridge into practice as a new graduate.
Graduates who successfully complete the academic and clinical aspects of the programme will be eligible to apply to the Health and Care Professions Council to register to work as speech and language therapist in the UK. Most SLTs work for the NHS but many also work in education, private practice and other settings. Career progression can include working in areas of clinical specialism, research as well as management opportunities.
