UCL is rated as the top UK university by research strength (REF2014). At the UCL Ear Institute, that excellence is reflected throughout our courses and at every level of study.
Why study audiology at UCL?

Partner hospitals & location
We are the only University in London where you can study a masters in audiology. We benefit highly from our location in central London including forming partnerships with local healthcare providers:
- We are partnered with the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital, which houses the largest clinical audiology unit in the country.
- We work closely with NHS audiology departments and private hospitals to provide placement and observation opportunities for students.
The best thing about the course was that in addition to establishing clinical competence, the programme provided students with a strong research foundation. This refined my research skills immensely and prepared me for my current role as a Research Audiologist, where I use both my clinical and research skills daily. - Madison Tutton, MSc Audiological Science with Clinical Practice.
