This degree has been designed for people who want an ideal preparation towards studying for an accredited Speech and Language Therapy qualification at post-graduate level. This degree does not include Speech & Language Therapy Therapist Status awards or qualifications.
It is also a very good starting degree for people who want to specialise in language special needs in schools, or in Higher Education student support for example, where they help people with dyslexia and other language processing difficulties to achieve their full potential. Because it is also a ‘Linguistics’ degree, it is useful in a range of areas relating to people and communication, such as counselling, teaching, elocution and working with text.
Throughout the course, you’ll enjoy consistent support and encouragement from the course team. The teaching team consists of many SLT qualified practitioners. The team includes Dr Steve Disney, Dr Sally Bates, Dr Hazel Bending and Malcolm MacIver, each possessing extensive experience and research interests including descriptive linguistics, vowel disorders, and reflective practice.
