Core Modules

Term 1 (Monday mornings)

Anatomy & Physiology of the Audiovestibular System

Lecturer: Dr Jonathan Gale

The aim of this module is to provide an understanding of the normal structure and physiological function of the auditory and vestibular systems and of how pathological processes affect both. This will provide the firm basis of understanding required in clinical practice and/or research. Lectures will cover the gross anatomy of the ear proceeding to the detailed structure of the cochlear and vestibular systems and of the relationship of structure and function in the transmission and processing of external stimuli from the periphery to the cerebral cortex. This will be followed by the way in which pathological processes affect the structure and physiology of both systems, and of how repair, regenerative and protective methods may ameliorate these affects. The module will also provide information concerning the normal embryological development of the auditory and vestibular systems and how genetic defects may affect these processes.


Term 1 (Friday mornings)

Research Methods and Statistics

Lecturer: Dr Debi Vickers

This module will introduce research methodologies for designing and conducting experiments and to develop understanding of selecting, conducting and interpreting statistical tests. The knowledge acquired will help students with the preparation of the statistics assignment and research project. Key topics will include

  • Introduction to Project Management
  • Data Collection and Handling
  • Evidence Based Practice and Systematic Reviews
  • Questionnaire design and validation
  • Ethics and Data protection
  • Selecting the statistical test and power analysis
  • Presentation Skills
  • Writing a research paper
  • Probability, Normal Distribution, t-tests, ANOVA, Chi-square
  • Correlation and Regression
  • Using SPSS

Term 2 (Monday afternoons)

Counselling for Hearing Healthcare Professionals

Lecturer: Ms Lucy Hanscomb

This module aims to enable practitioners at all levels to improve the quality of their day-to-day interaction with patients and their carers through the use of counselling skills.

The module will introduce the three core conditions of person - centered counselling: genuineness, empathy and unconditional positive regard.

Participants will gain an understanding of key counselling skills such as active listening, reflection and effective use of questioning and challenging. The inclusion of counselling skills in audiological practice will be discussed, along with issues such as maintaining boundaries and accessing supervision.

This course can be taken as part of the British Academy of Audiology Higher Training Scheme in Therapeutic Rehabilitation.
