Course Description

Our MSc Advanced Audiology Studies (Paediatrics) course is aimed at practising audiologists who want to prepare for advanced roles in clinical management, clinical practice, teaching and research relevant to children and young people.

The course consists of a mixture of audiology-specific units and those shared with health professionals from a range of other disciplines, enabling you to tailor the course to your own interests.

You will learn from internationally recognised experts at the Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD).

You may choose to complete 60 credits for a PGCert (exit award) or 120 credits (60 credits each year) for a PGDip. If your application to the course is successful, it is important you contact the programme team as soon as possible to discuss the units you wish to study, so an individualised timetable can be arranged.

The course requires you to complete a minimum of 75 credits through units listed in the Paediatric portfolio. The remaining credits can be selected from any modules within Advanced Audiology.  The Research Methods unit is compulsory for any students undertaking the MSc.

On successful completion of 120 credits, progression to the full MSc qualification allows you to explore, in depth, a specific aspect of audiology practice, policy, research or education in a 60-credit, 12,000 to 15,000-word dissertation.
