MSc Speech and Language Sciences

This MSc is an accredited professional programme leading to qualification as a speech and language therapist (SLT).

This programme integrates theory with work-based clinical placements with adults and children with a wide range of communication and swallowing difficulties.  The programme has an excellent reputation, and over 90% of graduates are working in SLT-related posts within six months of qualifying.

Clinical placements are a requirement for this programme of study. The government has mandated all NHS staff and students on healthcare courses are vaccinated against Covid-19. You must ensure you are vaccinated, unless you are exempt.
