Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences
Our department takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying the perception and production of speech, combining work in phonetics, hearing, perception, neurobiology and computational modelling. We examine the basic processes underlying speech, and connect this to practical applications addressing hearing impairment, atypical perceptual and cognitive development, language training, and speech technologies. Studying in our department will allow you to work with an internationally leading group of speech, hearing, and phonetics researchers, with many possibilities for external collaboration through our industrial, clinical, and academic links. Our recent graduates are employed as lecturers, postdoctoral researchers, and speech technology engineers.
